News broke out Friday afternoon that the Nashville Predators have traded backup goalie, Anders Lindback to the Tampa Bay Lightning for a few draft picks and a goalie prospect named Sebastian Caron.

Here is the Press Release sent out by the Nashville Predators.

Nashville, Tenn. (June 15, 2012) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has acquired two second-round draft selections (37th and 50th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, a 2013 third-round selection and goaltender Sebastien Caron in exchange for goaltender Anders Lindback, forward Kyle Wilson and a 2012 seventh-round selection (202nd overall).

The Predators now have nine selections in next week’s Entry Draft at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa. In addition to Tampa’s two picks, and three picks of its own, Nashville previously acquired Toronto’s third-round pick (66th overall), Phoenix’s fourth-round pick (118th overall), Dallas’ sixth-round pick (164th overall) and the New York Rangers’ sixth-round pick (179th overall).

Lindback was a seventh-round choice of the Predators (207th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Wilson, Minnesota’s ninth-round selection (272nd overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, was signed as a free agent prior to the 2011-12 season.

Anders Lindback was bound to move after the news that goalie prospect, Magnus Hellberg will be coming over to North America to play hockey here.

The move benefits both sides in which the Predators get two second round selections in the 2012 draft, a third round selection in the 2013 draft and a chance to develop a young goalie.

On the other side, the Tampa Bay Lightning have now found their starting goalie. Lindback will be a great fit for the Lightning and should play very well. There was a slim to no chance that Lindback would've been the starter in Nashville anyways. So, it gives Anders a chance to show everyone how good he is.
