Anders Lindback

Sabres' Lindabck Likely To Start Friday

News: Anders Lindback will likely start Friday's game against the Rangers, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: There hasn't been any confirmation one way or the other, but it would make sense for Anders Lindback to get his first start in a Sabres uniform, after Michal Neuvirth handled Thursday's game against Philadelphia. Neuvirth is still expected to handle most of the workload down the stretch.

Sabres Debut To Wait For Lindback

News: Updating a previous report, Anders Lindback will not start Friday against the Rangers, as the Sabres will stick with Michal Neuvirth in the net.
Analysis: With Neuvirth playing well since assuming No.1 goalie duties for the Sabres, he'll stick in the net for a fourth straight start. Anders Lindback will likely have to wait until Neuvirth's performance takes a turn for the worse before he makes his Sabres debut.

Lindback Traded To Sabres

News: The Sabres have acquired Anders Lindback and a conditional third-round draft pick in exchange for Jhonas Enroth, sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback (2-8-0, 3.71 GAA, .875 save percentage) started just seven games for the Stars while backing up Kari Lehtonen, so the trade to Buffalo could result in more frequent playing time for him. That said, the Sabres are mired in last place in the NHL, having allowed a league-high 191 goals in the process, so there's not much fantasy upside to be gained by the move. The No. 1 starter going forward in Buffalo will be Michal Neuvirth, who general manager Tim Murray said would like to see more of.

Stars' Lindback Squanders Opportunity To Win

News: Anders Lindback turned away only 21 of the 24 shots he faced to take the loss Saturday against the Sabres.
Analysis: As expected, the Stars controlled the pace of the game for much of the way and finished the night with a 40-24 shot advantage, but Anders Lindback was simply outdueled by Buffalo goalie Jhonas Enroth. A matchup against the league's worst team is about as favorable as it gets for a lightly used backup, and Lindback still couldn't come through for the Stars. Given that he now sports a 2-8-0 record and 3.71 GAA over his 10 appearances this season, Lindback can barely be trusted as even a streaming option in deeper leagues at this time.

Stars Plan To Start Lindback On Saturday

News: Anders Lindback was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is thus in line to start Saturday against the Sabres, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: The Stars will save Kari Lehtonen for the tougher matchup Sunday against the Rangers, hoping that Anders Lindback will be good enough to best a Sabres squad that has dropped 15 of its last 16 games. Lindback has submitted a horrendous 3.79 GAA and .875 save percentage over nine outings this season, but makes for a good streaming option Saturday for those gunning for a cheap goalie win.

Stars' Lindback Heading Back To NHL

News: Anders Lindback was recalled by the Stars on Friday from his AHL conditioning assignment, and he is expected to start a game this weekend, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback got some work with AHL Texas, and he'll now look to turn around his season, starting either Saturday in Buffalo or Sunday in New York against the Rangers. It would make sense for the Stars to save Kari Lehtonen for the more difficult matchup Sunday, but coach Lindy Ruff did not specify which game Lindback will start. Jussi Rynnas may be head back to the AHL soon.

Stars' Lindback Going On Conditioning Assignment

News: Anders Lindback will head to AHL Texas for a conditioning assignment beginning Tuesday, the Stars' official website reports.
Analysis: The owner of a 2-7-0 record, .875 save percentage and 3.79 GAA, Anders Lindback has quite obviously struggled this season. He'll get some work in the AHL while Jussi Rynnas serves as Kari Lehtonen's backup.

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.
