The recent Nashville signing just showed Preds goalie Pekka Rinne why the towering Finn should be glad that Moses will be on his side next season, as the talented right winger made an early statement at the World Championship.
Steve Moses had a season to remember with Jokerit in the KHL and one game into the World Championship in the Czech Republic, he’s already got a statement goal:
Moses, an undersized right winger who went undrafted out of the University of New Hampshire, played his past three seasons with Finland’s Jokerit squad, following the franchise to the KHL this year. That’s when he broke the record for goals in the Russian circuit by netting 36 in 60 games. He recently signed with the Nashville Predators, so next year we’ll be able to see what he can do against the best in the world.
But how about the work he did here in Team USA’s opener against Finland? The fact he managed to snake one of the best goaltenders on the planet in future Nashville teammate Pekka Rinne makes the move all the more impressive.
