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.

It was a freak injury as it occurred after Lindback got up after stretching before the game on Monday. He will be ready for the start of training camp. He finishes the season at 5-7-1.

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.
Feb 16 - 3:22 PM

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.
Feb 16 - 8:48 AM

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.
Feb 15 - 8:50 PM

It was another poor showing by Anders Lindback during Friday's 5-2 loss to Anaheim.

While it's worth noting that Lindback turned away 36 of 41 shots, including six of seven power plays, he also managed to look unable to follow the Ducks' play. Which is saying something. Lindback even turned the puck over to Mike Santorelli behind the net for an easy goal. It was a night to forget, as his record falls to 5-7-1 in 19 games this season.
Feb 6 - 1:01 AM

Anders Lindback will be the Arizona Coyotes' starter on Friday.

Lindback hasn't started in a game since Jan. 16, though he has made two relief appearances since then. He has a 2.98 GAA and .896 save percentage in 18 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 5 - 6:04 PM

Anders Lindback stopped all 12 shots he faced in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Lindback entered the game at the start of the third period after Louis Domingue gave up five goals on 25 shots through two periods. Lindback didn't factor into the decision.
Jan 26 - 11:31 PM

Anders Lindback allowed two goals on 16 shots in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

This was Lindback's first appearance of the new year. He has a 5-6-1 record with a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage this season. Louis Domingue has looked a lot better than Lindback this season.
Jan 16 - 5:23 PM

Anders Lindback will face Chicago on Tuesday night.

Through eight starts and 15 games this season, Lindback has posted a 5-5-1 record with 36 goals against and a .900 save percentage. Or perhaps one of the most valuable backup goalies in any reverse league.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 07:59:00 PM

Anders Lindback allowed only one goal on 39 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Lindback has really struggled to replace Mike Smith but has responded well in his first game since the Christmas break. This strong game might earn him more starts while Smith is out injured.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 10:58:00 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Anders Lindback will indeed face Colorado on Sunday night.

Lindback has not had a good season through seven starts and 13 games thus far. He's 4-5-1 with 35 goals against and an appalling .891 save percentage, which doesn't inspire any confidence.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:23:00 PM

Anders Lindback will probably get the call versus Colorado on Sunday.

Coach Dave Tippett said there's a "good chance" that Lindback starts. Louis Domingue will be in the crease against Los Angeles on Saturday.
