• Lindholm Signs Two-Year Extension With Hurricanes

    News: Elias Lindholm signed a two-year, $5.4 million contract extension with the Hurricanes on Thursday.
    Analysis: Elias Lindholm was a solid contributor in his first full NHL season in 2014-15, registering 39 points (17 goals, 22 assists) in 81 games with the team. He will return to his role as a top-six forward with Carolina this season, and should have a great shot at improving upon his offensive numbers from a year ago as he continues his development as an NHL forward.
  • Canes' Lindholm Dropped To Third Line

    News: Elias Lindholm failed to register a point during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Detroit. He was also a minus-2 for the second consecutive game.
    Analysis: Sure, Elias Lindholm is going through a bit of a rough patch right now, but overall it hasn't been a bad season for the 20-year-old Swede. With 39 points in 79 games, Lindholm currently sits third on the team in scoring, behind Eric Staal and Justin Faulk, and has a good chance of cracking the 40-point mark in his first full season. As he matures, Lindholm should develop into a solid top-six NHL forward with plenty of value in medium to deeper fantasy formats. Don't overlook him in the middle to late rounds of your drafts next year.
  • Canes' Lindholm Claims Goal In Defeat

    News: Elias Lindholm kicked off the scoring Saturday with a first-period tally, but the Rangers came back to claim a 3-2 shootout victory over the Hurricanes.
    Analysis: Those who hoped Elias Lindholm's three-goal, five-point performance two weeks ago was a harbinger of things to come have probably been disappointed. While Lindholm hasn't completely fallen off the map with two goals and an assist in his seven games since, his fantasy value lies very much in the future rather than this current talent-bereft version of the Hurricanes. At just 20 years old, it might take a while before Lindholm fulfills the annual 60-point production that might be his destiny.
  • Canes' Lindholm Explodes For Five Points In Win

    News: Elias Lindholm had a career-performance, netting a hat trick on just three shots and adding two assists in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Oilers.
    Analysis: An absolutely incredible outing for Elias Lindholm, who had recorded only one multi-point effort since Nov. 2. The five-point game propels the 20-year-old's total to 32 points on the season, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect this type of showing again anytime soon. Lindholm has shown flashes of his potential, so he could be worthy of consideration in deeper or keeper formats.
  • Canes' Lindholm Earns Power-Play Assist

    News: Elias Lindholm was credited with a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.
    Analysis: The 20-year-old is five points ahead of his mark in the same amount of games (58) from a season earlier, but it's not anything that should be regarded as a breakout. Elias Lindholm remains largely off the radar outside of deeper formats, but he still looks like a promising asset in keeper leagues. Over time, it's possible he'll develop into an annual 50-to-60 point threat.
  • Canes' Lindholm Hits 10 Goals With PP Tally

    News: Elias Lindholm scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
    Analysis: Elias Lindholm has now hit the 10-goal mark for the first time in his career. Playing in his second NHL season, the 20-year-old has 23 points in 51 games, including four power-play goals and four game-winners. With five points in his last six games, the second-liner is a rising fantasy player who's worth looking at in deeper formats.
  • Canes' Linholm To Rejoin Lineup

    News: Elias Lindholm will rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Ducks, Mike Maniscalco of 999 the Fan reports.
    Analysis: Elias Lindholm was a surprising healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Rangers, but he'll rejoin the lineup in short order.
  • Canes To Scratch Lindholm On Saturday

    News: Elias Lindholm will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Rangers.
    Analysis: Alexander Semin will come on to take Elias Lindholm's spot in the lineup. The demotion to the press box is a bit surprising for Lindholm, who has registered points in two of his last three games. It likely amounts to just a one-time lineup decision in an effort to give the 20-year-old a breather.
  • Canes' Lindholm Assists In Win Over Avs

    News: Elias Lindholm registered an assist and had five shots on goal during Tuesday's shootout win over the Avalanche.
    Analysis: Elias Lindholm now has 18 points in 43 games this season, and will surely surpass the 21 points he posted as a rookie last season. He continues to skate on the Canes' top line with the Staal brothers (Eric and Jordan) and offers modest fantasy value in deeper formats.
  • Scoring Pace Slowing For Carolina's Lindholm

    News: Elias Lindholm gathered an assist and attempted five shots in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Penguins.
    Analysis: Even with the recent return of Jordan Staal (leg) to the Hurricanes' top six, the team is still woefully short on offensive firepower, much to the detriment of Elias Lindholm. The 20-year-old carried the team's attack in the early part of November, but has been rather invisible since then. He's mustered only seven points over his last 22 games.
