  • Rangers' Oscar Lindberg: Could serve as a healthy scratch on Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/16) Lindberg may serve as a healthy scratch in Monday's contest against the Bruins, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.

    With Chris Kreider (hand) expected to return to the lineup, the rookie forward was seen skating at Sunday's practice as the dreaded "extra d-man". After scratching Kevin Hayes in a pair of games, it appears head coach Alain Vigneault is still testing the mental toughness of his top-nine forwards rather than selecting a player from the fourth line. Despite snapping out of an 11-game point-scoring drought with a goal and assist and a plus-4 over his last two games, Lindberg could now take one for the team. The 24-year-old Swede is plus-6 with 19 points through 40 games played.

    Rangers' Oscar Lindberg: Snaps out of drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/16) Lindberg collected an assist in a 6-2 win over Dallas on Tuesday.

    He also added four hits to go with a plus-4 on the night. But the point is the big monkey off the back of the 24-year-old Lindberg who had not found the scorer's sheet in 11 games. The rookie forward has now collected 10 goals and 18 points through 39 games.

    Rangers' Oscar Lindberg: Tossing the rubber around

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/15) Lindberg registered five shots on goal in a 4-1 win over Ottawa on Sunday.

    While he was held off the scoresheet, that's two straight games (five shots on goal) the young Swede has so liberally tossed the rubber around. With three goals in his last six contests, he's clearly capable of capitalizing on these chances. The rookie's 10 goals, 17 points and a plus-7 rating certainly has owners buying into his sustainability. Without a doubt, ripe for the picking in daily match-ups and deeper seasonal leagues, Lindberg is beginning to garner some consideration in more standard formats.

    Rangers' Oscar Lindberg: Hits double-digit goals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/3/15) Lindberg notched his 10th goal of the season Tuesday in a 2-1 loss to Colorado.

    The Rangers were in serious danger of being shut out until Lindberg found twine with 50 seconds remaining in the game. The rookie's been a revelation, as he sits second among Blueshirts in goals and his 17 points have him tied with Rick Nash for third on the squad. It's telling that even though he enjoyed only 12:23 of ice time in this one, Lindberg was on the ice for crucial shifts with the Rangers pushing for a goal. He's not a star, but this isn't a fluke -- the 24-year-old Swede has emerged as a key offensive contributor and should see his role increase as the year goes on.

    Rangers' Oscar Lindberg: More ice time in sight?

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/29/15) Lindberg has a goal and two assists in his last five contests.

    Oddly enough, Lindberg saw his ice time decrease (11:39) in the team's first game without top-2 center Derek Stepan (ribs) in the lineup. With Stepan's absence expected to be lengthy, it's possible to see the third line forward Lindberg (15 points in 24 games) could make his way up head coach Alain Vigneault's depth chart.

  • February 25, 2015: Rangers Send Lindberg To AHL
    Lindberg was sent down to AHL Hartford on Wednesday, the NY Post reports.Lindberg spent just one game with the NHL club, as he was called up to fill in for Rick Nash as he dealth with neck spasms.

    February 25, 2015: Rangers' Lindberg Makes NHL Debut
    Lindberg skated 8:18 and took two shots on goal in his NHL debut Tuesday against Calgary.The 23-year-old centerman showed some nice skill and grit, with his persistent play yielding a couple scoring chances despite the limited ice time. He's a short-timer in this stint with the Rangers, but has solid longer-term potential despite being an older prospect.
    February 24, 2015: Rangers Recall Lindberg
    Lindberg was recalled from AHL Hartford on Tuesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.The Rangers have at least one center feeling under the weather entering Tuesday's game against the Flames, so Lindberg will be on hand as an insurance option. The 23-year-old has an impressive 16 goals and 20 assists over 54 games for Hartford, but would more than likely be used in a bottom-six role if he ends up suiting up with the Rangers on Tuesday.
