Lindback was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Monday. Lindback's promotion came during the Predators' bye week in order to get No. 2 Juuse Saros some action in the minors. The 27-year-old Lindback enjoyed the benefit of a week of rest and will return to the Admirals, for whom he has posted a 17-6-0 record with a .920 save percentage.
The Predators recalled Lindback from AHL Milwaukee on Wednesday. Nashville sent Juuse Saros to the minors in a corresponding move so the 22-year-old netminder can continue to play during the Predators' five-day break. The two goaltenders will once again switch places in advance of Tuesday's matchup with Vegas.
Lindback was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Monday. This is now the third time this season that Lindback has been yo-yo'd between the AHL and NHL in order to give No. 2 goaltender Jusse Saros an opportunity to stay fresh by starting games in the minors. There's no reason to give Lindback any fantasy lineup consideration unless he's recalled in the event of an injury to the netminders ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.
Lindback was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Friday. The Swedish netminder hasn't appeared in an NHL game since the 2015-16 season with Arizona, but the Predators continue to rotate him with Juuse Saros to keep his conditioning at an acceptable level and benefit from hanging around NHL talent in practice from time-to-time. Obviously he has no fantasy value unless something were to happen to star goalie Pekka Rinne.
Lindback was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday, per the league's transactions page. The big Swede is currently in his second stint with the Nashville organization, though it doesn't seem as though he's being given serious consideration for playing time this time around. Lindback's recall was made for the sole reason of giving the franchise's No. 2 goaltender, Juuse Saros, a chance to see game action in the minors.
