This gold jersey was worn by Juuse Saros during Games 3 and 4 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final. Saros served as the back-up goaltender to Pekka Rinne.
Saros also wore this jersey while serving as a back-up for the Nashville Predators in their series-clinching 6-3 Game 6 victory during the 2017 Western Conference Finals over the Anaheim Ducks at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. It includes the NHL Centennial patch.
Despite qualifying for the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs as the Western Conference's eighth seed, and the 16th seed among 16 Stanley Cup playoff teams, the 41-29-12 Predators reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in their 18 NHL seasons.
It was Rinne's brilliance in goal, tenacious defense, and a non-stop skating style that propelled Nashville to the Western Conference championship before losing the Stanley Cup Final to Pittsburgh in six hard-fought games..
In one season, coach Peter Laviolette's team ascended from a playoff participant to within two games of the franchise's first Stanley Cup.
Captained by veteran Mike Fisher and a relentless Seventh Man that turned a country music mecca into Smashville, the Predators swept the Chicago Blackhawks in the First Round, and sped past the St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Ducks in six games each. In their first three series, the Predators allowed three or fewer goals in all but one game.
Overall, the stellar defense led by P.K. Subban, Roman Josi, Mattias Ekholm and Ryan Ellis allowed just 48 goals in 22 playoff games.
