Lindholm was extended a qualifying offer from the Avalanche on Tuesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reported. Lindholm, 24, a fifth-round draft pick, back in 2014, has only found the scoresheet four times in 62 games, all assists. Facing an uncertain future, one thing is certain and it's that Lindholm, while a serviceable blueliner at the NHL level, offers little-to-no fantasy upside regardless of what jersey he wears. He last appeared in a game Dec. 22, 2018.
Lindholm was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Monday. Pointless in two appearances with the Avalanche in 2018-19, Lindholm has been slightly more productive in the league below, registering seven assists in 34 games with the Eagles this season.
Lindholm was called up from AHL Colorado on Wednesday. Lindholm has produced four points -- all assists -- over 62 career games with the Avalanche. The Swede prides himself on playing a physical game, but he's not likely to see enough ice time to make a tangible fantasy impact, even with Mark Barberio (undisclosed) on injured reserve.
The Avalanche demoted Lindholm to AHL Colorado on Tuesday, per the AHL transactions log. Lindholm will hit the showers early with the Wild on tap Wednesday, heading back to the AHL after he drew into just two games in his time with the Avalanche. Not much of an offensive threat, the 24-year-old's relegation shouldn't have much of an impact from a fantasy standpoint. Still, he should remain one of the top options for recall if the Avalanche require reinforcements along the blue line.
The Avalanche recalled Lindholm from AHL Colorado on Sunday. Since Erik Johnson is dealing with an upper-body injury, Lindholm was brought up to provide depth on the Avalanche's blue line. He has suited up for just two NHL games this season and recorded less than 7:19 TOI in each outing, so he'll likely land on the bottom pairing if he enters the lineup and won't have appealing fantasy potential.
