Nashville Predators recall Anders Lindback, assign Mark Dekanich to Milwaukee

Confirming what we heard last night via Admirals Roundtable, the Preds have brought Anders "The Giant" Lindback back in time for today's game against Columbus (although surely he'll back up Pekka Rinne) and returned Mark Dekanich to the Ads. This, from the Preds:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled rookie goaltender Anders Lindback (AHN-dehrs LIND-bahck) from Milwaukee (AHL) and reassigned goaltender Mark Dekanich (MAHRK DEH-kuh-nihtch) to the Admirals.

Lindback, 22 (5/3/88), posted a 2-2-0 record with a 2.73 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage during his one-week stay with Nashville's primary development affiliate, his first career AHL action. The Gavle, Sweden native returns to Nashville where he has posted a 10-5-2 record, a .914 save percentage, a 2.58 goals-against average and a pair of shutouts in 2010-11, his first season in North America.

Dekanich, 24 (5/10/86), did not see action in his fourth recall of the season. The 2011 AHL All-Star is third in the American League save percentage (.929), ranked fourth in goals-against average (2.04) and is tied for eighth in wins (20).

It would have been neat to get another chance to see Dex on home ice to make up for the awful showing the team put up back on December 18, in a 6-1 loss to Los Angeles.
