  • Oscar Lindberg: Signs with KHL club

    Lindberg inked a one-year deal with KHL side Dynamo Moscow on Friday.

    Lindberg spent the 2019-20 campaign with Zug EV in the Swiss League, where he racked up 14 goals and 16 helpers in 46 outings. The 28-year-old will spend another year away from the NHL after having previously split the 2018-19 season between Vegas and Ottawa. Including a stint with the Rangers, the winger has appeared in 252 NHL contests in which he tallied 79 points and 117 PIM. If he can put together a strong season in the KHL next year, the 2010 second-round pick could make his way back to North America.

  • Oscar Lindberg: Signs with Swiss club

    Lindberg inked a one-year contract with EV Zug of the NLA on Monday.

    Lindberg drew into 55 NHL contests with the Golden Knights and Senators in 2018-19, notching nine goals and 20 points over that span. The 27-year-old likely could have secured a one-year deal with an NHL club for the 2019-20 campaign, but he probably would have had to settle for a bottom-six gig -- an option which evidently wasn't as attractive as the promise of a major role with a Swiss team.

  • Senators' Oscar Lindberg: Sets up goal in win

    Lindberg had the primary assist on Anthony Duclair's opening goal in a 4-2 win over Toronto on Saturday.

    Lindberg is now up to seven points in 15 games, easily the best showing he's had in any of his three locations. He's still not a great option in most fantasy formats, but he could be a value play in daily leagues when you need someone cheap, as he's likely to go for a low price and seems to be trying to close the year strong and set himself up for free agency.

  • Senators' Oscar Lindberg: Pots goal in loss

    Lindberg scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Canucks.

    Lindberg has settled in fairly well with the Senators since being part of the return in the Mark Stone trade. Lindberg has five goals on 13 shots in 11 games since the trade. While no player is capable of shooting 38.4 percent over a large sample size, it's a positive showing for the pending free agent. For the year, he has 17 points (nine goals, eight helpers) in 46 contests, which isn't enough to help in most fantasy formats.

  • Senators' Oscar Lindberg: Sent to Senators

    Lindberg is heading to Ottawa along with Erik Brannstrom in exchange for Mark Stone, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    This might be a case of the Senators absorbing a contract to make the deal work for both sides, as Lindberg is a free agent at the end of the season, with Brannstrom the Senators' real prize. With 10 points in 31 games, things aren't likely to get a lot better for Lindberg on a roster that's now essentially devoid of stars.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Scores in loss

    Lindberg potted his third goal of the season in a 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday.

    Lindberg's goal came on three shots, and he added two PIM for good measure. Limited to 31 games this season, Lindberg now has 10 points, which means he's safe to avoid in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Imposes physicality in loss

    Lindberg amassed eight hits in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.

    Lindberg has found himself out of the lineup in four out of six games for the Golden Knights in February. Lindberg typically plays with a physical edge, adding 56 hits to his nine points in 30 games this season, but the feistiness alone may not be enough to keep him in the lineup.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Not doing much for Knights

    Lindberg has just two goals and nine points in 2018-19.

    The Swedish winger has two of his nine points in the month of January, but for the most part, Lindberg has been easy to miss this season. The 27-year-old's shooting percentage of 4.2 is the lowest of his career, as Lindberg has been unable to convert on scoring chances when they've found him. Outside of deeper leagues, Lindberg should not be owned until he becomes a more consistent threat offensively.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Watching from press box

    Lindberg has served as a healthy scratch for the Golden Knights last seven games.

    In the six games in which Lindberg was in the lineup, he got some looks on the power play (1:39 per game), but is still searching for his first point of the 2018-19 campaign. Once Erik Haula (lower body) or Paul Stastny (undisclosed) are cleared to return, Lindberg could be headed down to AHL Chicago.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Two goals in comeback win

    Lindberg scored twice in Saturday's 5-4 preseason home win over the Sharks.

    Vegas GM George McPhee has assembled a top-six forward group chock-full of established scorers, so Lindberg will likely have to settle for a bottom-six assignment after producing a mere 11 points and minus-11 rating over 63 games with Vegas in 2017-18. It's also conceivable that he'll frequent the press box during the regular season if he happens to hit the skids late in training camp.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Back in action Wednesday

    Lindberg (undisclosed) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday against the Coyotes, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

    Coach Gerard Gallant suggested earlier in the day that there was a good chance we would see Lindberg back in the lineup Wednesday after he missed 14 consecutive games and that is indeed the case. He will slot in alongside Cody Eakin and Ryan Reaves, taking the place of David Perron in the lineup.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Likely to play Wednesday

    Lindberg (undisclosed) has a "good chance" of playing Wednesday night against the visiting Coyotes, according to Vegas coach Gerard Gallant, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

    Lindberg reportedly skated Monday ahead of a 4-1 home win over the Avalanche when the expansion club officially clinched a playoff spot, but he was spotted in a non-contact jersey at the time. It appears that his status will come down to pregame warmups.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Skates in non-contact jersey

    Lindberg (undisclosed) was on the ice for Monday's game-day skate in a non-contact sweater, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Considering Lindberg hasn't been cleared for contact, its safe to assume he won't be in the lineup versus Colorado on Monday. The center has already been sidelined for 13 straight outings due to his undisclosed injury. Even once the Swede is cleared to play, he could struggle to crack the lineup and may have to continue watching from the press box -- this time as a healthy scratch.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Held out again

    Lindberg (undisclosed) was scratched from Friday night's lineup against the WIld, according to an NHL.com roster report.

    A versatile forward from Sweden, Lindberg will miss his ninth consecutive contest. In his stead, the Golden Knights have been using Cody Eakin and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare to round out the center spot in the bottom six. We still like Lindberg's long-term upside -- he was originally property of the Coyotes as 2010's second-round (57th overall) draft pick -- but injuries and the lack of a significant role have bogged him down early in his career.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Continues to sit

    Lindberg (undisclosed) will not dress again Wednesday against the Devils, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

    Lindberg will miss his eighth consecutive game because of the issue and there is no specified end in sight. The vast majority of fantasy owners shouldn't concern themselves with his status given Lindberg's nine points (seven goals, two assists) over 57 games, but those interested should keep an eye out for news suggesting he's nearing a return.

  • Golden Knights' Oscar Lindberg: Remains sidelined

    Lindberg (undisclosed) won't participate against Philadelphia on Monday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    The cause of Lindberg's injury still hasn't been revealed, but he's now been sidelined since Feb. 26. In Lindberg's continued absence, Tomas Nosek should continue to suit up and play on the fourth line, and the 26-year-old will look to build upon the nine points (seven goals, two assists) in 57 games he's posted and attempt to return Wednesday against New Jersey.
