      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Posts assist in losing effort Friday

      Lindholm extended his current point streak to four games, assisting on the Hurricanes' only goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Sabres. After a horrendous start to the season with just a single goal in his first 16 games, Lindholm appears to have rediscovered his scoring touch. With five points in his last seven games, he's now settling into a similar groove that saw him fall just one point shy of the 40-point mark last season. He has modest fantasy value in medium to deeper formats.

      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Scores in OT loss to Flyers

      Lindholm opened the scoring with a first-period goal in an eventual 3-2 OT loss to the Flyers on Saturday. It was his first point in a month, as the goal snapped a mammoth 13-game pointless drought. At this rate, Lindholm will be hard-pressed to come anywhere close to the career-high 39 points he posted last season, despite playing on the Canes' top line with the Staal brothers - Eric and Jordan. As such, he's a tough fantasy recommendation at the current time. Feel free to go with a more viable alternative if you have one.

      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Will return Sunday

      Lindholm (lower body) was on the ice for warmups, indicating he will return to the lineup Sunday. Lindholm initially appeared doubtful for the contest, but must have felt good enough Sunday morning to give it a go. He'll slot in alongside Jeff Skinner and Riley Nash as the right wing on the third line, bumping Andrej Sestrasil out of the lineup.

      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Doubtful for Sunday

      Lindholm (lower body) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports. Head coach Bill Peters also told reporters Saturday that the injury is not believed to be serious, so labeling Lindholm as day-to-day seems to be appropriate. While he likely won't suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Lightning, the 20-year-old winger could return to action as soon as Friday against Dallas. Either way, his status for Sunday's contest should be confirmed prior to puck drop Sunday afternoon.

      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Exits Friday's game with injury

      Lindholm exited Friday's tilt against the Blackhawks with a lower-body injury and will not return to the contest. Lindholm took a nasty spill into the corner in the first period after getting tangled up with Colorado's Nikita Zadorov. He had to be helped off the ice and into the locker room after the collision. He briefly returned for the beginning of the second period, but headed back to the locker room shortly thereafter. The Hurricanes should provide an update on the 20-year-old winger's status once they have an opportunity to evaluate him further.

      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Struggling to generate offense

      Lindholm was held off the scoresheet during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks, extending his current pointless streak to five games. Lindholm continues to skate on the Canes' top line with Eric Staal and Victor Rask, but is not showing much chemistry with either player. If his struggles persist much longer, Lindholm is in danger of being bumped down to a lower line, which would likely negatively impact his ice time. Bottom line, fantasy owners should not be relying on Lindholm as one of their primary options right now.

      Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm: Bumped to Canes' third line

      Lindholm has been bumped from the first to the third line following a shoulder injury to Riley Nash, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. Lindholm had previously been playing the wing on the Canes' top line alongside Eric Staal and Victor Rask. However, in the wake of Nash's injury, coach Bill Peters was forced to do some lineup shuffling, and Lindholm was seen centering Jeff Skinner and Chris Terry at Monday's practice. In fantasy terms, a move to a bottom-six role is rarely a positive thing. Keep an eye on Lindholm's ice time and point production, and be ready to downgrade him in your fantasy lineups accordingly.

    • 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.
