It seems like only yesterday we were talking about how the Dallas Stars’ poor goaltending was costing them valuable points in the standings.
The Sabres will receive goalie Anders Lindback and a conditional third-round pick (2016) in return.
Enroth is a pending unrestricted free agent with a .903 save percentage in 37 appearances for the Sabres this season. While those numbers are far from great, they’re at least better than the ones belonging to Lindback (2-8-0, .875), who struggled mightily as Kari Lehtonen’s backup before he was dealt away.
“Jhonas is an extremely instinctive, experienced goaltender and head coach Lindy Ruff has a familiarity with his game,” said Dallas GM Jim Nill in a release.
“Going down the stretch, where we have five more back-to-back situations, it was important for us to have a game-tested goaltender to help balance the workload.”
Enroth could receive his first start for his new team soon, as the Stars have back-to-back games Friday and Saturday versus Florida and in Colorado, respectively.
Like Enroth, Lindback is also a pending UFA.
