Lindback was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Lindback was called up from AHL Milwaukee on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

This move is likely more about getting Juuse Saros minutes with the Admirals than it is about Lindback's performance. With games Thursday and Saturday against Vancouver and Anaheim respectively, the veteran will almost certainly spend his time on the bench watching Pekka Rinne patrol the crease. A swap between the Swede and Saros should be expected in the near future.

Lindback was reassigned to the minors Monday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Lindback's promotion to Nashville was short lived, as the goal was simply to get youngster Juuse Saros some game action. Having achieved that outcome, the 29-year-old Swede returns to the Admirals, where he has posted a 8-3-0 record with a .918 save percentage. While this probably isn't the last time the Predators will swap these two netminders, it seems Saros -- not Lindback -- is the long-term replacement for Pekke Rinne.

Lindback earned his first call-up of the season Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While the decision to swap backup goalies could be contributed to getting Juuse Saros some much needed play time, Lindback's 8-3-0 record and 2.46 GAA with AHL Milwaukee were no doubt factors as well. The 29-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2015-16 when he was with Arizona, but may have to wait even longer as Nashville is not scheduled for a back-to-back until December.

Lindback was sent down to AHL Milwaukee on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Lindback -- who is making his second stint with the Predators -- will be a familiar name for Admirals fans as he previously played for Milwaukee from 2010-12. The former seventh-round pick will likely spend the bulk of the year in the minors splitting time with Mat O'Connor.

Lindback will start Sunday's preseason tilt against Columbus, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The big Swede last played in the NHL during the 2015-16 campaign and is hoping a return to Nashville -- where he enjoyed two successful seasons as Pekka Rinne's backup -- will rejuvenate his career. While Lindback is currently toiling as the organization's third or fourth goaltender, it's certainly within the realm of possibility for Lindback to play himself into an NHL role in 2017-18.

Lindback signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Saturday, per CapFriendly. The deal is worth $650,000 in the NHL but just $100,000 in the minors.

EDGE Analysis

His name should ring a bell for hockey enthusiasts that followed the NHL between 2010-16. Lindback had stints with the Predators, Lightning, Stars, Sabres and Coyotes, respectively, before joining Rogle BK in his home country this past season. A career backup, Lindback has a 45-58-8 record to go along with a 2.87 GAA and .904 save percentage over 130 career NHL games.

Lindback will remain on the active roster for AHL Ontario as the team has retracted its press release saying he had been released from his PTO, Lindsay Czarnecki of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

It turns out that Lindback will retain his job after all as the Kings continue to deal with injuries to their goalies. Regardless, this whole debacle should serve as a reminder that Lindback isn't likely to make much of a fantasy impact this season.
