Back-up Predators goalie for the last two year, Anders Lindback, will have his chance to come out from under the shadow of Vezina nominee, Pekka Rinne next season as he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning as part of a multi-player deal on Friday.

The Predators traded Lindback, Kyle Wilson and a seventh round pick to the Bolts in exchange for two second round picks in this years NHL Entry Draft and a third rounder at next year's draft. The Preds also took on the Lightning's cast off goalie, Sebastien Caron who will become an UFA on July 1st and is not a part of Nashville's plans.

The Predators were without a first or second round pick in next week's draft and this move partially filled that void and will help the team restock the cupboard with more young talent.
