  • Lindberg has been held off the scoresheet in 10 straight games. The month of October saw Lindberg register five goals in 11 games, which put him well on pace to break his career high of 13. Unfortunately, November was not as kind to the natural center, as he went the entire month without recording a single point. With a new month right around the corner, perhaps the Swede can turn his season around and find a way to contribute in the offensive zone.

  • Lindberg scored a first-period goal in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Sabres. It was the second straight game with a goal for Lindberg, bringing him to three on the season. The 25-year-old Swede also blocked a season-high three shots in the contest. Averaging a career-high 13:35 of ice time, Lindberg may soon force his way onto a power-play unit if he keeps up his scoring.

  • Lindberg signed a two-year, $3.4 million contract with the Golden Knights on Tuesday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. Lindberg was selected by Vegas in June's expansion draft. He's coming off a 2016-17 campaign in which he had just eight goals and 12 assists across 65 games with the Rangers, which kept him off the radar in the majority of fantasy formats. The 2010 second-round pick has shown flashes of potential in his career, but he'll likely need to take on a bigger role in order to become a viable fantasy option.

  • Lindberg appears to have been selected by the Golden Knights in Wednesday's expansion draft, per Frank Seravalli of TSN. Lindberg notched just 20 points this past year while averaging a mere 10:50 of ice time, but he's shown flashes of the talent that got him taken in the second round of the 2010 NHL Draft. A pending restricted free agent, the 25-year-old could take on a bigger role under coach Gerard Gallant.

  • Rangers' Oscar Lindberg: Next stop Vegas?

    Lindberg was left unprotected by the Rangers with the expansion draft looming, theScore reports. Since Lindberg, a pending restricted free agent, was left off the Rangers' protected list, his camp has the option of negotiating a contract with the Golden Knights (and only them) under a 72-hour window. The Rangers had him under a standard two-year contract valued at $1.3 million, which proved to be a bargain since he managed 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists), despite averaging only 10:50 of ice time over 65 games.
