Lindberg logged an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Florida. It's a good sign for the third line forward who had been held off the scorer's sheet in four straight games. Despite the lull, the rookie is still outperforming any expectations with a plus-8 rating and 13 points through 20 games.
Lindberg collected an assist in Saturday's victory over Arizona. The 24-year-old also rewarded owners in a few other categories as he notched two shots on goal and four penalty minutes. While no one should be surprised that the second round pick (2010) is producing, his consistency has certainly been unexpected. Lindberg, currently enjoying his second three-game point streak of the season, now has seven goals and four assists in 14 games played.
Lindberg had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's win over Washington. The rookie forward had a balanced night, plugging some other categories such as PIM (2), shots on goal (3) and a game-high six hits to go with a plus-2 rating. Since registering just one point in five games last month, Lindberg (nine points in 12 games) has recovered, logging four points (two goals, two assists) in his last four tilts. While we continue to temper our expectations, as far as we can tell, this youngster is only hampered by bottom-six minutes.
Lindberg nets his fifth of the season in a 4-1 win over Calgary. After starting the season on a heater, the third line center cooled off a bit. But with points the last two contests, Lindberg has posted a very respectable seven points in the first 10 games of his rookie campaign. While we don't recommend dropping anyone with top-six status for the 23-year-old, his progress is certainly worth keeping an eye on in most fantasy formats, regardless of his expected total ice time.
Lindberg scored twice Saturday against the Blue Jackets and now has four goals in the Rangers' first three games. He's the first rookie in franchise history to score at least one goal in a season's first three games. Not bad for a guy expected to be a bottom-six forward. But he's caught lightning in a bottle and we'll take it. Just don't expect it to last.
