The plan is to get Anders Lindback into an AHL game over the weekend.

Anders Lindback will join the Los Angeles King on a PTO, but he is expected to report to the AHL's Ontario Reign.

The Reign will play three games in three days this weekend and could use a goaltender with Peter Budaj and Jack Campbell up with the Kings due to injuries. Lindback's tryout could be extended based on how he plays. If Los Angeles needs him then he could end up seeing some NHL as well.

Anders Lindback blocked 30 shots and gave up four as the New Jersey Devils defeated the New York Rangers 5-4 Saturday night.

Lindback played all 60 minutes of the contest and had a save percentage of .882. This was on par with his record last year of .894 with the Arizona Coyotes. Lindback lost some momentum in 2014-15 with the Dallas Stars boasting an .875 save percentage, but seven games with their AHL affiliate lifted him to .946. Later that season with the Buffalo Sabres, he garnered a .924 save percentage in 16 games.

Anders Lindback will join the New Jersey Devils' training camp on a tryout basis.

Lindback had a 3.11 GAA and .894 save percentage in 19 games with the Arizona Coyotes last season. The Devils could use an extra goaltender for their training camp because Cory Schneider is with Team USA for the World Cup. That being said, Schneider is a lock to be the team's starter as long as he's healthy and Keith Kinkaid is expected to be the team's backup, so the odds of Lindback being part of New Jersey's opening game roster aren't great.

Anders Lindback (Achilles) should be fine by the start of training camp.

Lindback sustained the injury while getting ready for a game on Feb. 15. "It was literally nothing, and I was really shocked obviously that it happened," Lindback said. "It’s one of those fluky things. They don’t really know why it happens." He's been training consistently, but is still in a walking boot. That being said, the plan is for him to resume skating in June and hopefully make a full recovery in August. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer though, so naturally that's another big X-Factor going into this offseason.

Anders Lindback had successful Achilles tendon surgery on Friday but will be out for the remainder of the season.

Anders Lindback's Achilles' tendon injury occurred when he was getting up after stretching for Monday's game.

"It wasn’t kicking a soccer ball or anything like that," Coyotes GM Don Maloney said. "It was one of those freak things that happen, unfortunately." As previously reported, Lindback might be done for the season. With Mike Smith also out long-term, Louis Domingue is likely to be leaned on heavily while Niklas Treutle has been summoned to serve as the backup.

Anders Lindback is out indefinitely with an Achilles' tendon injury.

He was hurt when he was warming up for Monday's contest. Lindback will probably require surgery and he could be done for the season.

Anders Lindback's previously undisclosed injury is a lower-body issue.

Lindback was hurt prior to the start of Monday's game. "It doesn’t look good," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We’ll get some more tests (Tuesday), but I think it’s a fairly serious injury." The Coyotes are already missing goaltender Mike Smith, so this just increases the pressure on Louis Domingue.

Anders Lindback suffered an off-ice injury prior to the start of Monday's pregame warmup.

The nature of the injury is still unclear. The Coyotes will use Nathan Schoenfeld, who's the son of Rangers assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld, as their backup goalie behind Louis Domingue tonight.
