Anders Lindback might end up setting a new career-high for games played this season.

Lindback has a career-high of 24, but he's already played in seven contests this season. He's reached that mark in a bit of an unusual way though as he's already replaced Mike Smith three times this season. Still, it's amounted to an increased level of responsibility for the backup goaltender and that's increased further while Smith recovers from a lower-body injury. Lindback has a 2.51 GAA and .909 save percentage.

Can’t ask for anything more from your back-up goalie. Lindback allowed a goal in the second and that was it. He has stopped 41 of 43 shots against him this season. As long as Mike Smith’s resurgence proves to be real, Lindback will only be good for a handful of starts the rest of the way.

He will be taking on the Senators in Ottawa. The Coyotes are giving starter Mike Smith the night off after he played in the team's first seven games. Fantasy GMs looking for a starting goaltender for tonight should look elsewhere. Lindback was 6-16-2 with Dallas and Buffalo last season.

Anders Lindback replaced Mike Smith to begin the third period on Thursday night, as the Coyotes fell to the Wild 4-3.
