Goaltender Pekka Rinne’s recovery timetable from a hip infection has been pushed back two weeks, the Predators announced on Friday.

Rinne, who had hip surgery on May 8, had appeared in only nine games when the Predators announced he had a bacterial infection. He has not played since Oct. 22.

They had hoped he could resume a more strenuous workout regimen starting Friday, but doctors decided to take a more cautious approach.

“It is important to note that Pekka and the medical team have not encountered any setbacks in his recovery and rehabilitation,” the team said in a press release. “However, as we have realized and learned throughout this process, the recovery and rehabilitation from a bacterial infection does not involve a specific timetable. It does come with a degree of uncertainty.
