Coming in at No.5 on our list is Anders Lindback. The Swedish netminder was drafted in 2008 by the Predators in the seventh round.
Lindback made his debut during the 2010 NHL season. He had the dubious task of backing up Pekka Rinne, who was undoubtedly the future. During the 2010 season, Lindback recorded each of his two career shutouts within a span of two days.
While Lindback wasn’t a Predator for very long and didn’t play in a ton of games, his save percentage and GAA remained strong. In fact, Lindback has the second-best GAA for all Predators’ goaltenders, second only to Rinne.
After two seasons with the Predators, Lindback was traded to Tampa Bay in 2012. You have to think he could’ve handled the primary starting role pretty well if Rinne had not been ahead of him on the depth chart.
