The Arizona Coyotes were without Anders Lindback on Monday as the goaltender suffered an undisclosed injury off the ice prior to pregame warmups.

The nature of the injury and how long it will sideline Lindback is unknown. Nathan Schoenfeld, the son of former NHL defenseman Jim Schoenfeld, signed an amateur tryout agreement prior to Monday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens and served as Louis Domingue’s backup.

Lindback has posted a 5-7-1 record with a 3.11 goals-against average and an .894 save percentage in 19 games – 13 starts – this season. The 27-year-old is winless in three starts since emerging victorious at Colorado on Dec. 27.

Selected by Nashville in the seventh round of the 2008 draft, Lindback debuted with the Predators on 2010-11, going 11-5-2 with two shutouts and a 2.60 GAA in 22 games. He spent one more season with Nashville before being traded to Tampa Bay, where he went 18-22-3 with one blanking over two campaigns.

Lindback signed with Dallas as a free agent in July 2014 but played in only 10 games with the Stars before being dealt to Buffalo. The 6-foot-6, 215-pounder posted a 4-8-2 record in 16 contests with the Sabres but was not re-signed and inked a contract with Arizona last July.

A native of Gavle, Sweden, Lindback is 45-58-8 with three shutouts and a 2.87 GAA in 130 regular-season games with the Predators, Lightning, Stars, Sabres and Coyotes and 0-3-1 in five playoff contests with Nashville and Tampa Bay. He won the bronze medal with Sweden at the 2010 IIHF World Championship, setting the record for shortest time played in the tournament at one second.
