Lindholm (wrist) could miss the rest of the season, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. Lindholm has been out since March 1 with a broken wrist. He was initially given a six-week timeline, but it appears he's not progressing as quickly as expected. The Swede has yet to return to practice, so he's likely at least another week or two away from returning. General manager Bob Murray indicated he wouldn't just bring the defenseman back for the final week of the season. It makes sense for the Ducks to be cautious with the 27-year-old stalwart of their blue line in a rebuilding year -- there's no playoff push to rush him back for. With Lindholm out, top prospect Jamie Drysdale has taken on a starting role.
Lindholm (wrist) was placed on long-term injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly. Lindholm is two weeks into his six-week timeline for recovery from a broken wrist. He's not expected back until April at the earliest, and the Ducks are far out of the playoff picture, so they have no need to rush him back. By putting the Swede on LTIR, the Ducks gain cap flexibility.
Lindholm is dealing with a fractured wrist and is expected to miss about six weeks, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. Lindholm suffered this injury Feb. 27 against the Golden Knights, and he was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. This is a significant loss for the Ducks' blue line, as Lindholm averages 22:02 of ice time per game, including minutes on both the power play and the penalty kill. Cam Fowler should handle increased duties, and Josh Mahura should stay in the rotation as long as Lindholm is out.
Lindholm (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly. The 27-year-old typically handles top-pairing minutes, so it's a major loss with the Ducks up against the Blues and Avalanche over the next two games. Lindholm will be eligible to return for Saturday's road contest against the Avalanche.
Lindholm (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday against St. Louis, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. Lindholm will miss a second straight game with his undisclosed issue. Josh Maura will likely continue to hold onto a spot in the lineup until Lindholm is ready to return.
