Anders Lindback G DAL 19 Days

Lindback gave up four goals on 28 shots in Saturday's loss to the Sharks.

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.

Lindback will start in net Saturday against the Sharks, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.

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.

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.

It will be 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.

Lindback was beaten for six goals on 28 shot attempts in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Islanders.

The Stars only turned to 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.

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.

Lindback will be looking to even his record at 1-1 after he was dealt a loss in his lone prior appearance this season, a Oct. 11 defeat at the hands of the Oilers. Chad Johnson will start for the Islanders in the opposing net.

Lindback is expected to backstop the Stars for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

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 a Oct. 11 loss to the Predators.

Lindback made 29 saves on 32 shots in Saturday's loss to the Predators.

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.

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.

So long as No. 1 goalie Kari Lehtonen stays relatively healthy this season, 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.

With Jussi Rynnas placed on waivers Monday, Lindback looks poised to open the season as the backup to Kari Lehtonen, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

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.

Anders Lindback has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Stars for $925,000.

Lindback will back up Dallas starter Kari Lehtonen and may play 25-30 games. He could play more if the injury-prone Lehtonen, as he usually does, misses considerable amount of time.
