Preds Reassign Goaltender Mark Dekanich to AHL
Saturday, 02.19.2011 / 3:10 PM CT / News
|Dekanich was recalled after goaltender Anders Lindback fell ill during Thursday night's game against Vancouver. Lindback was back on the ice during morning skate today and by the fact that Dekanich is being reassigned back to Milwaukee, indicates that Lindback is back in good health.
The move comes none to quick for the Milwaukee Admirals. The Ads are in the midst of a three-games-in-three nights stretch which started with last night's shootout win and continues with a game at Peoria tonight and back home for Texas on Sunday.
