Dallas Stars Sign Goaltender Anders Lindback

Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed goaltender Anders Lindback to a one-year contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Lindback, 26, posted a record of 8-12-2 with an .891 save percentage and a 2.90 goals against average in 23 regular-season contests with Tampa Bay last season. Lindback also earned one shutout for the Lightning during the 2013-14 campaign. The goaltender made four appearances in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, going 0-3 with an .881 SV% and a 3.91 GAA.

"Anders has been effective in both Nashville and Tampa Bay," said Nill. "He's a player that Mike Valley, our goaltending coach, knows well and his age and experience mesh perfectly with where our group is at collectively."

The four-year NHL veteran has posted a career record of 34-35-5 with a .904 SV% and a 2.74 GAA with three shutouts in 85 career regular-season appearances with Tampa Bay and Nashville. He has appeared in five career Stanley Cup Playoffs contests, earning an 0-3 record with a 3.68 GAA and an .890 SV%, stopping 113 of the 127 shots he's faced in the postseason.

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound native of Gavle, Sweden was originally selected by Nashville in the seventh round (207th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft.
