Top Gustav Lindstrom News

  • Ducks' Gustav Lindstrom: Gets on scoresheet Saturday

    Lindstrom posted an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Lindstrom earned his first point as a Duck on Ryan Strome's third-period tally. This was Lindstrom's eighth appearance since he was claimed off waivers from the Canadiens. The 25-year-old defenseman was initially limited to a third-pairing role, but he's played alongside Cam Fowler at even strength over the last two games. Lindstrom has five points, 19 shots on net, 28 blocked shots, 19 hits and a plus-5 rating through 22 outings this season.

  • Ducks' Gustav Lindstrom: Seeking first point with new club

    Lindstrom has yet to record a point over six games with the Ducks since he was claimed off waivers from the Canadiens.

    Lindstrom is at least getting playing time now -- he sat for about a month with the Canadiens before he was waived. The 25-year-old blueliner is at four points, 18 shots on net, 26 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 20 outings between the two teams this season. Lindstrom is likely to fill a bottom-four pairing with no power play role when in the Ducks' lineup, so he's not a player to keep an eye on for fantasy.

  • Ducks' Gustav Lindstrom: Claimed off waivers

    Lindstrom was selected off waivers by the Ducks from Montreal on Wednesday, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Lindstrom has collected three goals, four points, eight hits and 23 blocks in 14 outings with the Canadiens this season. Anaheim dealt Jamie Drysdale to Philadelphia in the Cutter Gauthier trade Monday, which is presumably why the Ducks added Lindstrom through waivers.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Hits waivers

    Lindstrom was placed on waivers Tuesday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Lindstrom has three goals, one assist, 15 shots on net, 23 blocked shots and eight hits in 14 contests with the Canadiens this season. If he goes unclaimed, he could be ticketed to AHL Laval.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Forces OT

    Lindstrom scored a goal on two shots and blocked one shot over 13:12 of ice time in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Red Wings.

    Lindstrom moved in from the side wall and wristed a feed from Josh Anderson past Ville Husso, tying the game and setting up overtime. It was the second goal in three games and third of the season for the defenseman. Montreal's blueliners continued to produce offense, scoring two of the team's four tallies.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Finishes off Blue Jackets

    Lindstrom scored an empty-net goal in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Columbus. He also had two shots on net, two blocked shots, one hit and two penalty minutes over 19:02 of ice time.

    Lindstrom scored his second goal since being called up from AHL Laval seven games ago. He began his stint with the Canadiens on the third pair but has recently played on the top pair with Mike Matheson, as Lindstrom's averaged nearly 20:00 TOI over the last three games. With several blueliners nursing injuries, Lindstrom will likely remain in the lineup for the next week or so at a minimum, but it's unclear if he'll always skate on the top pair.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Points in two straight

    Lindstrom had an assist, one shot on goal and two blocked shots over 12:06 of ice time in Thursday's 6-5 loss to Vegas.

    Lindstrom remained in the lineup as Jordan Harris (upper body) was unavailable again, and the fill-in blueliner recorded a second point in as many games. He scored Montreal's lone goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Calgary.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Fills in, scores

    Lindstrom scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Flames. He added two blocked shots and one hit to his line over 10:19 of ice time.

    The hockey gods shone on Lindstrom whose shot was going wide but caromed off Rasmus Andersson into the net. Lindstrom, who was called up from AHL Laval earlier this week and has played three games for Montreal this season, filled in for an ailing Jordan Harris (upper body). The 25-year-old Lindstrom has over 100 games of NHL experience, making him an ideal candidate for the Laval-to-Montreal shuttle when injuries strike.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Recalled from minors

    Lindstrom was recalled from AHL Laval on Sunday, per the NHL media site.

    Lindstrom has posted three blocked shots and one shot on goal in two appearances with the Canadiens this season. If Jordan Harris (upper body) can't play Sunday against Vancouver, Lindstrom will be in the lineup.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Sent to AHL

    Lindstrom was reassigned to AHL Laval on Saturday.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Makes Montreal debut

    Lindstrom had one shot and blocked two shots over 11:47 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Devils.

    Lindstrom was called up from AHL Laval and made his Canadiens' debut. Montreal is dealing with injuries on the blue line -- Kaiden Guhle (upper body) is day-to-day while both Chris Wideman (back) and David Savard (hand) are longer term on injured reserve -- which gave Lindstrom a chance to get back to the NHL. He played 128 games with the Red Wings over the last four seasons.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Brought up from AHL

    Lindstrom was summoned from AHL Laval on an emergency basis Tuesday.

    Lindstrom will probably make his Montreal debut Tuesday against New Jersey due to injuries to David Savard (upper body) and Kaiden Guhle (upper body). The 25-year-old Lindstrom compiled eight points, 34 blocked shots and 39 hits in 36 games for Detroit last season.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Lands on waivers

    Lindstrom was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Sunday.

    Lindstrom joined Montreal in the offseason in a trade that sent Jeff Petry to Detroit. The 24-year-old defenseman will open the year with AHL Laval if he clears waivers. Lindstrom had a goal and eight points in 36 games last season with the Red Wings.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Good to play Saturday

    Lindstrom (upper body) is expected to draw into the lineup for Saturday's preseason game against Ottawa.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Day-to-day

    Lindstrom didn't practice Monday and is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

    Per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Lindstrom should be available for Opening Night on Oct. 11 against Toronto. Even if the 24-year-old Lindstrom is ready for Montreal's season opener, he is slated to serve as an extra defender going into the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Lindstrom: Traded to Montreal

    Montreal obtained Lindstrom and a conditional 2025 fourth-round pick from Detroit on Tuesday in exchange for Jeff Petry.

    In 36 appearances with the Red Wings last season, Lindstrom earned one goal, seven assists, 34 blocked shots and 39 hits. The 24-year-old defender could end up spending most of the year as a depth option for the Canadiens, and he'll consequently need to compete for playing time.

  • Red Wings' Gustav Lindstrom: Secures one-year deal

    Lindstrom inked a one-year, $950,000 contract with Detroit on Saturday.

    Lindstrom logged just 36 games with the Red Wings last season, spending most of the season as a healthy scratch as the team's seventh defenseman. When he did get into the lineup, the Swede registered one goal, seven assists and 18 shots while averaging just 14:10 of ice time. Lindstrom is unlikely to see significantly more minutes this season, making him a relative non-factor in fantasy contests.

  • Gustav Lindstrom: Hitting open market

    Lindstrom was not qualified by Detroit on Friday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.

    Lindstrom averaged 14:10 of ice time with eight points in 36 games with the Red Wings last season. He has 128 career NHL games under his belt and could provide some depth on the blue line elsewhere.

  • Red Wings' Gustav Lindstrom: Back at it Saturday

    Lindstrom is in the lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against the Flyers.

    Lindstrom gets the nod over Simon Edvinsson, who takes a breather after scoring his first career goal Thursday against the Blues. The former has played part-time in the NHL this season, adding a goal and six assists through 30 contests.
