Dallas goalie Anders Lindback has been assigned to Texas for conditioning while Jussi Rynnas has been called up by the NHL club. I would expect Lindback to start every game he can while he is in Texas.

In addition, Jesse Root was assigned to Idaho.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced a series of roster moves today as goaltender Jussi Rynnas has been recalled by Dallas, goaltender Anders Lindback has been loaned to the team on a conditioning assignment, and forward Jesse Root has been assigned to the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads.

Rynnas, 27, has appeared in two contests with Dallas this season, posting an 0-1-0 record with a .841 save percentage and a 4.57 goals against average. The goaltender owns a 13-3-6 record with a 2.68 goals against average and a .915 save percentage in 24 appearances with Texas in the 2014-15 campaign.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound native of Pori, Finland was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 7. 2014.

Lindback, 26, has a 2-7-0 record with an .875 save percentage and a 3.79 goals against average in nine appearances with Dallas in 2014-15. The Gavle, Sweden native has appeared in five games with Texas this season, posting a 3-2-0 record with a 1.59 goals against average and a .946 save percentage.

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound goaltender was originally selected by Nashville in the seventh round (207th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft and was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 1, 2014.

The 25-year-old Root has appeared in 28 games for Texas this season with four goals and seven assists. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound product of Pittsburgh, Penn., has also tallied 10 points (four goals, six assists) in eight ECHL games this year with Texas’ affiliate in Idaho.
