Nashville, Tenn. (November 30, 2017) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Thursday that the club has recalled goaltender Anders Lindback from the American Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals. Additionally, the club has reassigned goaltender Juuse Saros to Milwaukee.
Lindback leads the AHL in wins with 11 and is seventh in save percentage with a .925 mark. He's posted a 2.32 goals-against average and 11-4-0 record in 15 starts to go with one shutout for the Admirals this season, who sit in second place in the AHL's Central Division. Lindback began the AHL campaign with five consecutive victories and made 40 saves in his last start with Milwaukee on Nov. 28, leading the Admirals to a 4-2 win over the Iowa Wild.
Originally drafted by the Predators in the seventh round (207th overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft, Lindback returned to Nashville this summer after signing a one-year contract. The Gavle, Sweden, native spent two seasons with the Predators from 2010-12, going 28-16-13 with a 2.53 goals-against average, .914 save percentage and two shutouts in 38 games. The 6-foot-6 goaltender spent last season with Rogle BK of the Swedish Hockey League, where he posted a .916 save percentage in 23 games. Lindback has a 45-58-8 record in 130 career NHL games with Nashville, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, Dallas and Arizona.
