His minus-4 rating was the worst among Stars skaters, dropping him to even in the category this season. He's at eight points, 68 shots on net, 62 hits and 73 blocked shots in 34 contests as a mainly defensive presence in the top four.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Offers assist Tuesday

    Lindell recorded an assist, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Lindell sprang Roope Hintz for a goal on the rush in the second period. The 27-year-old Lindell had gone seven games without a point, and he has just two helpers in 14 contests this year.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Nabs helper

    Lindell recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Lindell has mostly been kept quiet in 2021-22, as his assist Monday was his first point in six contests. That's partly due to the Stars' meager scoring output -- the team has averaged two goals per game so far. Lindell has still been a solid source in non-scoring production with 17 shots on net, 17 hits and 10 blocked shots while adding a plus-1 rating. The Finn typically is on the fringe of usefulness in standard fantasy formats given his decent but not outstanding all-around production.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Tally and helper Saturday

    Lindell scored a goal, dished an assist, went plus-3 and blocked three shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

The 26-year-old Lindell has 12 points, 71 shots, 78 blocks, 90 hits and a plus-10 rating in 42 games this year. He's worked in a top-four role, but his fantasy value mostly comes from his non-scoring production.

For the year, the Finn has racked up 11 points, 82 hits, 68 blocks, 67 shots on net and a plus-6 rating through 38 games. His offense isn't remarkable, but he makes up for it with solid all-around production that could carry value in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Chips in with helper

    Lindell notched an assist, five hits and four blocked shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers.

The 26-year-old Lindell hasn't done much on the scoresheet with eight points in 31 contests this season. He's partially made up for it with 58 hits, 53 blocked shots, 58 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating. Most fantasy managers in standard formats can find a blueliner with more scoring upside.
