Lindgren was sent down to AHL Laval on Friday, John Lu of TSN Montreal reports.

Carey Price (lower body) is back from injury and slated to start Saturday, which means playing time for Lindgren was going to be scarce if he had stayed with the big club. Sending him back to the minors will allow him to continue playing regularly. Lindgren was terrific in his emergency role, posting a 2.43 GAA and a .924 save percentage in eight games.
