Stars' Lindback Solid In Spot Start, But Loses

News: Anders Lindback turned in a respectable 20 saves on 22 shots Thursday against the Jets, but was stuck with a 2-1 loss.
Analysis: Wins have been hard to come by for Anders Lindback, who actually has more regulation losses (seven) than starts (six) this season. If you have him in fantasy, it's only because every goaltender in the NHL is owned in your league.

Stars' Lindback In Net Thursday

News: Anders Lindback will start between the pipes against the Jets on Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback was the first goalie off the ice for Thursday morning's skate, making him the presumed goalie against the Jets. That is indeed the case, as he led the Stars onto the ice for warmups.

Stars Turn To Lindback

News: Anders Lindback was the first goalie off the ice at the Stars' morning skate, which puts him on track to start Thursday's game against the Jets, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback is in line to draw Thursday's assignment, on the heels of taking over from from Kari Lehtonen, with the Stars down 2-0 midway through the first period of Tuesday's 5-4 win over Ottawa.

Stars' Lindback Earns Relief Win

News: Anders Lindback entered with the Stars down 2-0 midway through the first period Tuesday, and he ended up stopping 34 of 36 and riding a surge of offensive support to a 5-4 win over Ottawa.
Analysis: An ineffective Kari Lehtonen gave way to Anders Lindback, who turned in arguably his best outing of the season. Interestingly, Lindback has ended up with the decision in all three of his relief appearances -- in fact, both of his wins on the year have come in relief. His stats have been hideous, so he can't be much of a threat to Lehtonen even with how poorly the Finnish goalie has played this year (and recently).

Lindback Stops Only 16 As Stars Fall

News: Anders Lindback was tagged for four goals on just 20 shots by the Jackets in Tuesday's 4-2 loss.
Analysis: Just another ugly outing for Anders Lindback, who continues to struggle mightily on the rare occasions when he gets the call in net. He's 1-6 on the year, and that lone win came in a Dec. 21 relief appearance against the terrible Oilers. Lindback isn't worth owning in the vast majority of formats at this point, and he could eventually end up getting displaced from his backup role by Jussi Rynnas.

Stars' Lindback Set For Tuesday Start

News: Anders Lindback is on track to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback was the first goalie off the ice following the Stars' morning skate, which puts him on track to start Tuesday for the first time since Nov. 29. Assuming Lindback gets the nod Tuesday, he will square off against a surging Columbus team that has lost just three times since the beginning of December.

Stars' Lindback Gets Win In Relief

News: Anders Lindback saved nine of the 10 shots he faced in 35:39 minutes of action after replacing Kari Lehtonen in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win against the Oilers.
Analysis: Anders Lindback allowed a goal a few minutes after coming into the game, but was solid the rest of the way as his mates rallied from 5-2 down to get the win. It's his first win of the season as he now sports a 1-5-0 record, though the 26-year-old will likely see limited action unless Lehtonen continues to struggle.

Stars To Start Lindback Soon

News: Anders Lindback is expected to start one of the Stars' upcoming games in Western Canada -- likely Wednesday against Vancouver or Friday against Calgary -- according to the Dallas Morning News.
Analysis: After an 0-5-0 start to the season, Anders Lindback was sent to the AHL to regain his confidence. As long as Kari Lehtonen remains healthy, Lindback figures to see very limited opportunities in Dallas.

Stars Recall Lindback

News: Anders Lindback was recalled from AHL Texas on Sunday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has had a rough time with the Stars this season, posting a 4.63 GAA and .861 save percentage while losing all five tilts. He will receive another chance to back up Kari Lehtonen, however, as the team assigned Jussi Rynnas to AHL Texas.

Stars' Lindback Clears Waivers, Reports To AHL

News: Anders Lindback cleared waivers Thursday and has reported to AHL Texas, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Unsurprisingly, Anders Lindback didn't get scooped up by an NHL club after posting an abysmal 4.63 GAA and .861 save percentage over five starts with the Stars. With Dallas deciding to cast their lot with Jussi Rynnas as their backup to Kari Lehtonen, Lindback will serve as organizational goalie depth.

Stars Place Lindback On Waivers

News: Anders Lindback was waived by the Stars on Wednesday, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Starting goalie Kari Lehtonen hasn't been great this season, but Anders Lindback was demonstrably worse whenever coach Lindy Ruff called his number. Lindback lost all five of his starts and contributed a 4.63 GAA and .861 save percentage, numbers that led the Stars to determine they had seen enough. Jussi Rynnas was recalled from AHL Texas to take over as the Stars' backup netminder.

Stars' Lindback Faces 47 Shots In Loss

News: Anders Lindback stopped 42 of 47 shots in the Stars' 5-2 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday.
Analysis: Anders Lindback stood his ground until the third period when the Avs scored two power-play goals in 3:45 to begin the period. The Stars were undisciplined all night, giving the Avs eight power-play chances. Lindback wasn't spectacular but held the fort as long as he could. The 6-6 Swedish netminder has struggled all season and is still searching for his first win. He's considered one of the league's weaker backups at the moment.

Stars' Lindback Gets The Start Saturday

News: Anders Lindback will start Saturday against the Avalanche, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has really struggled this season, but he will get the nod Saturday to give regular goaltender Kari Lehtonen a night off. Lindback will face off against a Colorado team that has won four of six entering Saturday's game.

Stars' Lindback Suffers Another Loss

News: Anders Lindback gave up four goals on 28 shots in Saturday's loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has been awful this season, posting a 0-3-0 record, to go with a 4.41 GAA. With the way he has played, the Stars aren't likely to start Linback ahead of Kari Lehtonen very often. Even when he does get the start, Lindback has done nothing to show he can be reliable in fantasy this season.

Stars' Lindback Will Start Saturday

News: Anders Lindback will start in net Saturday against the Sharks, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback is 0-2-0 on the season and has given up nine total goals over his two starts. His .850 save percentage will need to improve if he wants to steal more starts away from starter Kari Lehtonen.

Stars' Lindback In Line To Start Saturday

News: Anders Lindback was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and appears set to make the start Saturday against the Sharks, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: It will be Anders Lindback's third appearance of the season and his first since Oct. 25, as Kari Lehtonen receives the evening off. He doesn't make for a particularly appealing fantasy option against a high-quality Sharks offense.

Stars' Lindback Roughed Up In Loss

News: Anders Lindback was beaten for six goals on 28 shot attempts in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: The Stars only turned to Anders Lindback to give Kari Lehtonen a rest for the second game of a back-to-back, and the backup's performance Saturday showed exactly why he'll see infrequent use this season. With a career 2.79 GAA and .903 save percentage, Lindback is probably one of the weaker No. 2 goalie options in the league and is liable for these types of implosions any time he faces a quality offense.

Stars Confirm Lindback As Saturday Starter

News: Anders Lindback led the Stars onto the ice for pregame warmups and will get the starting nod Saturday against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback will be looking to even his record at 1-1 after he was dealt a loss in his lone prior appearance this season, an Oct. 11 defeat at the hands of the Oilers. Chad Johnson will start for the Islanders in the opposing net.

Stars Expected To Go With Lindback On Saturday

News: Anders Lindback is expected to backstop the Stars for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback was off the ice early during Saturday's optional skate, so it's expected that he'll spell regular starter Kari Lehtonen for the evening. An official confirmation on the Stars' starter likely won't come until pregame warmups, but it looks like both teams will go with backups, as Chad Johnson is slated to man the net for the opposition. Lindback took the loss in his only other appearance this season, giving up three goals on 32 shots in an Oct. 11 loss to the Predators.

Stars' Lindback Stops 29 Shots In Loss

News: Anders Lindback made 29 saves on 32 shots in Saturday's loss to the Predators.
Analysis: Anders Lindback stopped the first 20 shots he faced on Saturday, before giving up three goals on the next six. The former-Predator isn't expected to see too much action this season, with Kari Lehtonen the clear No.1 goalie in Dallas. If Lehtonen does happen to go down with an injury at any point, Lindback could be worth a fantasy pickup behind an offensively talented Stars team.

Dallas Likely To Start Lindback On Saturday

News: Anders Lindback was the first goalie off the ice and is expected to receive the starting nod Saturday against the Predators, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: So long as No. 1 goalie Kari Lehtonen stays relatively healthy this season, Anders Lindback projects to see only minimal usage this season. However, it looks like coach Lindy Ruff will ease Lehtonen into his heavy workload, as he'll get an early-season breather. Lindback is expected to match up against Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne, but don't count on him to deliver impressive results.

Stars' Lindback Appears To Have Won Backup Job

News: With Jussi Rynnas placed on waivers Monday, Anders Lindback looks poised to open the season as the backup to Kari Lehtonen, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback's standing appeared to be in some doubt when both he and Rynnas were inked to one-way contracts in the summer, but Lindback ended up separating himself through his performance during the preseason. After he stoned the Blues 27 times on 29 shots in Saturday's win and earned the praise of coach Lindy Ruff, Lindback was able to secure the role for good. In spite of his solid camp, Lindback still figures to collect dust in the regular season, with the Stars set to lean heavily on Kari Lehtonen so long as he stays healthy. The 26-year-old Lindback's spotty NHL track record (34-35-0, 2.74 GAA, .904 save percentage over 85 games) doesn't suggest he'll ever develop into a capable No. 1 netminder.

Lindback's Role With Stars Suddenly Unclear

News: Anders Lindback's role with the Stars this coming season has become clouded due to the team signing goaltender Jussi Rynnas to a two-year, one-way contract.
Analysis: The fact that Rynnas's contract is one-way is surprising. That means that it isn't a guarantee that Anders Lindback has the backup job behind Kari Lehtonen. There's a good chance either Lindback or Rynnas has to clear waivers at some point to head down to the AHL, and that leaves the possibility that Lindback won't be with Dallas long unless the team plans on carrying three goaltenders. The Stars' goaltending situation will be one to watch in training camp.

Stars Sign Lindback

News: The Stars signed Anders Lindback to a one-year, $925,000 million contract Tuesday.
Analysis: Anders Lindback was 8-12-2 wih the Lightning last season with a .891 save percentage and a 2.90 GAA. He'll serve as Kari Lehtonen's backup heading into next season.

Bolts Will Not Qualify Lindback

News: The Lightning will not qualify Anders Lindback, reports the Tampa Tribune, but he will get consideration to return as the backup, albeit at a cheaper price tag.
Analysis: The Bolts would have had to qualify him at least $2.2 million. But his 8-12-2 record, 2.90 GAA and .891 save percentage in the regular season and his 0-3 record, 3.91 GAA and .881 save percentage in the postseason were all rather forgettable. The general manager Steve Yzerman hasn't completely ruled out Anders Lindback's return to the team. "We are going to look and see what is out there, but (Lindback) is on the list," Yzerman said.
