Lindholm fell just shy of the 40-point mark for the second straight season in 2015-16, finishing fourth in team scoring with 39 points. Lindholm was one of just a handful of bright spots on a mediocre Canes team this year. He took a major step forward in ice time, averaging a career-high 18:07 per game, and cemented himself as a top-six player for the Hurricanes all season long. Lindholm is set to undergo off-season foot surgery this summer, but barring any complications, should be back ready to go when training camps open oin September.
Lindholm could be facing offseason foot surgery, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. Lindholm played in all 82 games this season, so the injury was obviously not serious enough to force him to miss any time. We expect Lindholm, who scored 39 points for the second straight season, to be fully healthy once training camps open in September.
Lindholm snapped a five-game pointless drought with a goal and an assist in Saturday's season finale against the Panthers. The two-point showing allowed Lindholm to match his 39-point output from last year, putting him just shy of the 40-point mark once again. Given his skill set, Lindholm would probably be a 50-point player on just about any other team with more offensive pop. For now, fantasy owners will have to manage their expectations accordingly. We expect Lindholm to be back in a top-six role for the Canes next season.
Lindholm scored a goal and picked up four PIM in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets. Lindholm has hit double digits in goals for the second time in his three year career. He continues to reap the benefits of playing along side Jordan Staal, who assisted on Lindholm's goal, and is worth picking up and starting in deeper leagues.
Lindholm scored his ninth goal of the season during Thursday's 3-2 OT win over the Bruins. Lindholm now has 33 points in 68 games this season, giving him an excellent shot of surpassing the career-high 39 points he posted last year. He continues to thrive on the Canes' top line along with Jordan Staal and Joakim Nordstrom, and is worth a look in medium to deeper fantasy formats.
