The Nashville Predators have signed Anders Lindbäck to a one-year, two-way contract for the 2017-18 season. The terms of the deal are worth $650,000 in the NHL and $100,000 in the AHL. Lindbäck was drafted by the Predators in 2008 and played for two-seasons in the organization.
In Lindbäck’s time with the organization he played 44 games between the NHL and AHL. The majority of his time was spent in the NHL as a member of the Predators where he played for 38 games, earned 16 wins, and had a 2.51 goals against average, 0.914 save percentage, and 2 shutouts. He played 6 games previously with the Milwaukee Admirals: 3 wins, 3.13 goals against average, and 0.897 save percentage.
He has been on quite the odyssey ever since being traded by the Predators to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2012 off-season. He has since played for eight different teams across three different leagues since his time with the Lightning came to a close. In his 2016-17 season he was signed to a PTO Contract with the Ontario Reign in the AHL, was released, and ended up playing back in his native Sweden with Rögle BK.

Wow, interesting. I have periodically checked where he’s been over the past few years and he has had quite a journey and lots of it not so good. Would you say the two Ads goalies are now in place between Lindback and O’Connor?
Do you think another team will give Maz a chance?
I think Gunner got a raw deal by not being brought back. Should have brought him back to see what he could do with some actual playing time. So far with going off the stats, I’m not too impressed with the 2 they are bringing in.
Another tall Swedish goalie. I have seen this show before!
I agree that Gunnarsson was good in his limited chances.
