The news was hinted at this morning by Matthew Barnaby and had been floating around for several days, but it was finally confirmed Wednesday afternoon by Bob McKeznie.
DAL acquires G Jonas Enroth from BUF.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 11, 2015
Mike Heika has the reported price:
Jhonas Enroth to Stars from Buffalo for Anders Lindback and a conditional third, according to source.— Mike Heika (@MikeHeika) February 11, 2015
[Ed. note: The pick is in the 2016 draft]
There is no word yet on the return from Dallas. Enroth is 13-21-2 with a .903 save percentage and 3.27 goals against average this season playing behind a terrible Sabres team, but he did beat the Stars last weekend as the Stars trounced Buffalo in every way but on the scoreboard in a 3-2 loss.
Enroth, much smaller than the Stars current set of goalies at 5-foot-10, 166 pounds, was a second round pick in 2006 and is in the final year of a contract with a $1.25 million cap hit.
Lindback was 2-8 with a .875 save percentage and 3.71 GAA as the Stars backup goalie this season.
More to come on this move in a bit...
