Top Charlie Lindgren News

  • Blues' Charlie Lindgren: Hit waivers Thursday

    Lindgren was placed on waivers by St. Louis on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Lindgren spent the past six seasons within the Canadiens organization, for which he played in 24 games with a 10-12-2 record. The netminder faced an uphill battle to overtake Ville Husso as the No. 2 option for the Blues and will likely only see NHL action this year due to injury to Husso or starter Jordan Binnington.

  • Blues' Charlie Lindgren: Snags two-way pact

    Lindgren signed a one-year, two-way deal with St. Louis on Thursday.

    The addition of Lindgren is nothing more than a depth move as he is unlikely to challenge Ville Husso for the No. 1 spot on the Blues' roster. Even if he did manage to make the Opening Night roster, Lindgren would see minimal usage behind started Jordan Binnington.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Dressing as backup Wednesday

    Lindgren ascended from the taxi squad and will suit up as the backup netminder Wednesday against Edmonton, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca

    Cayden Primeau was appointed the starter, so it doesn't seem likely that Lindgren will receive his first taste of NHL action this season. Carey Price (concussion) is reportedly expected back for the postseason, which basically solidifies Lindgren's No. 4 spot on the depth chart behind Price, Jake Allen and Primeau.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Promoted to taxi squad

    Lindgren was promoted to Montreal's taxi squad Wednesday.

    Lindgren will be traveling via private charter to meet the Canadiens in Edmonton for Wednesday night's matchup with the Oilers, so he won't have to quarantine upon his arrival. The 27-year-old netminder will likely remain with Montreal's taxi squad until Carey Price (concussion) is ready to return.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Dropped to AHL affiliate

    Lindgren was assigned to AHL Laval on Thursday.

    Lindgren will switch spots with Michael McNiven, who was promoted to Montreal's taxi squad in a corresponding move Thursday. Lindgren will likely start between the pipes for Laval versus AHL Toronto on Friday.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Rises to taxi squad

    Lindgren was recalled from AHL Laval to the taxi squad Monday.

    Lindgren and Michael McNiven continue to alternate between the taxi squad and minors. The 27-year-old Lindgren has played two games in the AHL this year, recording an .875 save percentage and a 1-1-0 record.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Lindgren was assigned to AHL Laval on Tuesday.

    Lindgren is expected to make a few starts for Laval, so he'll be in the minors for the foreseeable future. The 27-year-old American has yet to see NHL ice in 2020-21.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Returns to taxi squad

    Lindgren was reassigned from AHL Laval to the Canadiens' taxi squad Wednesday, per CBS Sports.

    Lindgren was sent to the minors Tuesday, but is back with the taxi squad as the No. 3 option behind Carey Price and Jake Allen. It's a role Lindgren will likely fill for most of the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Sent down to minors

    Lindgren was assigned to AHL Laval on Tuesday, per TSN.

    Lindgren and Cayden Primeau swapped places with the move. Lindgren could see some playing time in the minors, but the 27-year-old is better suited to serving as emergency depth on the taxi squad, while Primeau needs the development time in Laval. Expect the two to switch roles again in the future.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Added to taxi squad

    The Canadiens added Lindgren to the taxi squad Monday, Matt Cudzinowski of the Canadiens' official site reports.

    As expected, Montreal is making Lindgren its third goalie to open the season. Coach Claude Julien has expressed a desire to give starter Carey Price ample rest this season, so Lindgren could serve as the backup to Jake Allen on the active roster at times.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Clears waivers

    Lindgren cleared waivers Monday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    The Canadiens can now stash Lindgren on the taxi squad as the team's third goalie.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Exposed to waivers

    The Canadiens placed Lindgren on waivers Sunday, Matt Cudzinowski of the Canadiens' official site reports.

    Lindgren, who is expected to serve as Montreal's third goalie and a member of the taxi squad, needs to clear waivers before assuming that role. The 27-year-old netminder appeared in six games for Montreal in 2019-20 and was a backup at AHL Laval. He was 7-6 with a 2.67 goals-against average and .893 save percentage over 16 games in the AHL.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Likely member of taxi squad

    Lindgren is expected to serve as Montreal's third goalie on the taxi squad, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    One of the new wrinkles for the 2020-21 season is that teams are required to maintain a group of extra players who will be available on game nights if a player tests positive for COVID. Per the guidelines, taxi squads will carry a minimum of four players and a maximum of six and must include a goalie unless the team is carrying three goalies on its active roster. If on the taxi squad, Lindgren will be allowed to practice and travel with the active roster, but he will not be allowed to participate for AHL Laval or any other affiliates. He could also be employed as the backup on game nights, which could be one way to keep Carey Price rested.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Spotted at training camp

    Lindgren (undisclosed) is on the ice for day two of the Canadiens' training camp, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    Lindgren exited Montreal's final practice prior to the stoppage in March with an apparent injury after taking a shot up high, but he's had plenty of time to make a full recovery from whatever was ailing him. The 26-year-old American is expected to serve as Carey Price's backup once postseason play gets underway.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Exits practice early

    Lindgren exited Wednesday's practice with an apparent injury after taking a shot up high, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    The Canadiens have yet to shed any light on Lindgren's condition, but he should be considered questionable at best for Thursday's matchup with Buffalo at this point. If he's unable to go, Montreal will need to recall a netminder to fill in against the Sabres.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Rare start ends in loss

    Lindgren made 28 saves in a 4-1 loss to Florida on Saturday.

    He allowed three goals. Lindgren doesn't make enough starts to be carried in most leagues. And when he does, he plays behind a team that won't make the postseason. Avoid Lindgren, unless you are truly desperate.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Getting another look

    Lindgren will start Saturday's game in Florida, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    With the reality of a non-playoff season setting in, Lindgren should spell Carey Price more frequently down the stretch. He last took the ice a week ago, coming away with 27 saves in a 4-3 win over Carolina on Feb. 29.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Rare start ends in win

    Lindgren made 27 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over Carolina on Saturday.

    It was his first start since Feb. 4. The Habs roared out to a 3-0 lead only to let the Canes back in the game. Lindgren isn't worthy of ownership -- starter Carey Price had started the previous 11 games and 17 of the Habs' last 18.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Set for spot start

    Lindgren will tend the home twine against Carolina on Saturday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    Carey Price will get a night off after 11 straight starts, so Lindgren will make his first appearance since Feb. 4. The 26-year-old netminder has struggled at the top level this year, posting an .880 save percentage, 3.49 GAA and a 1-3-0 record. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes enter this contest with wins in four of their last five road contests while averaging 4.4 goals per game in that dominant road stretch.

  • Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Outlasts Devils in shootout

    Lindgren allowed four goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over New Jersey.

    It was hardly a banner night for the young netminder, but Lindgren will take the win after losing his first three starts of the season. With Carey Price battling the flu, Lindgren could receive another start or two, though rookie Cayden Primeau could get a look Thursday against visiting Anaheim, as well.
