CareerEdit

As a younger player, Rynnäs was never considered a prime talent and was, for example, never drafted in the NHL. After becoming over-aged to play in the Ässät Junior team, Rynnäs had serious trouble in finding himself a team, ending up in the Finnish 3rd division.

However, Ässät signed him for the 2009-2010 season and, after impressive performances in the pre-season games, Rynnäs got more and more responsibility and ended up becoming Ässät's number one goalkeeper and a fan favourite. In the end of the season, several NHL teams showed interest, and Rynnäs eventually chose Toronto.
