Nashville, Tenn. (April 15, 2018) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Sunday that the club has recalled goaltender Anders Lindback from the American Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals.
Lindback, 29 (5/3/88), is tied for the AHL lead in wins with 31 and closed out his season in Milwaukee with a 2.82 goals-against average and .908 save percentage. He started 56 games for the Admirals, who finished with a 38-23-4-2 (82 points) record in the AHL's Central Division, and won eight of 10 games from March 2-30, allowing two-or-fewer goals in nine of those contests. Lindback also represented the Admirals at the 2018 AHL All-Star Classic in Utica, N.Y. on Jan. 28-29.
