Lindgren (upper body) will not be available for the Rangers' last three contests. Despite playing in just 51 games this season, Lindgren set new personal bests in assists (15), points (16), shots (65) and ice time per game (20:00). Heading into next season, Lindgren should continue to log plenty of minutes and could even top those numbers.
Lindgren (upper body) won't play in Monday's matchup with Washington. Prior to getting hurt, Lindgren managed just one point in his previous seven contests, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on much in the way of offensive support from the blueliner even once cleared to play. With Jacob Trouba (upper body) also sidelined, Zachary Jones and Tarmo Reunanen could both be tasked with logging significant minutes down the stretch.
Lindgren (upper body) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Islanders, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports. It will be the first missed game of the season for the 23-year-old, who's managed 16 points across 51 contests in his second full NHL campaign. Lindgren's next chance to return comes Monday against visiting Washington.
Lindgren is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Although Lindgren's technically considered day-to-day, he should probably be considered a longshot at best for Saturday's rematch with the Islanders. If Lindgren's unable to go, Anthony Bitetto or Tarmo Reunanen will likely draw into the lineup against the Isles.
Lindgren notched an assist, five hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Sabres. Lindgren had the secondary assist on Mika Zibanejad's opening tally in the first period. Through 49 games this season, Lindgren has taken a step forward on offense. He has 16 points, a plus-20 rating, 60 shots on net, 94 hits, 50 blocked shots and 35 PIM this season as a defensive complement to Adam Fox on the top pairing.
