Top Ryan Lindgren News

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Doubles goal total Saturday

    Lindgren scored twice on three shots, went plus-2 and added two PIM in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.

    Lindgren provided a pair of insurance tallies, including an empty-netter, in the final 10 minutes of the game. The 23-year-old defenseman doubled his goal total for the season to four, and he's added three assists in 33 contests. The Minnesota native is more of a defensive presence in the top four, so multi-point efforts shouldn't be expected often. He's logged 69 blocked shots, 55 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-13 rating.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Supplies assist in return

    Lindgren notched an assist, four hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-1 win over the Oilers.

    Lindgren earned the secondary helper on Alexis Lafreniere's opening tally at 5:25 of the first period. The 23-year-old Lindgren missed three games while in the COVID-19 protocols, but his absence likely wasn't felt in fantasy. The defenseman has five points, 27 shots on net, 48 hits, 67 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating in 31 contests this year. His solid play in his own zone allows his regular defense partner, Adam Fox, to get more involved in offense.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Exits COVID protocols

    Lindgren (COVID-19 protocols) was cleared to return to the active roster ahead of Monday's matchup with Edmonton, per CapFriendly.

    Considering Lindgren has garnered just four points in 30 appearances this season, few fantasy players are likely to be impacted by his return to the lineup. Still, the defensive-minded blueliner could help limit the shot attempts faced by the Rangers' netminders and should resume logging over 20 minutes of ice time per night.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Designated for COVID-19 protocols

    Lindgren was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Lindgren was in the midst of a 10-game pointless streak. He recorded four points through the first 20 games of the season. He battled through an 11-game pointless drought earlier in the year, as well.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Solid all-around performance in win

    Lindgren put forth an assist, four blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

    We continue to see flashes of the potential that made Lindgren a second-round (No. 49 overall) draft selection -- originally for Boston -- in 2016. He's generated two goals, two assists, 45 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 20 games to qualify as a steady, no-frills defenseman.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Physical complement to Fox's skill

    Lindgren had a team-high four hits in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Kraken while adding one shot, one blocked shot and a plus-1 rating.

    Lindgren is the physical, stay-at-home complement to reigning Norris Trophy winner Adam Fox, who put his offensive abilities on display by potting the game-winning goal in the third period. While he usually lets Fox do most of the forays deep into the offensive zone, Lindgren worked on his offensive game in the offseason, and the improvement has been evident. He has already tied his career high with one goal, and Lindgren had a second would-be goal called back on an offside challenge earlier in the season. Skating with Fox certainly has its benefits in the rating department, as Lindgren's already at plus-6 through nine games this season and plus-42 since the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Good to go for camp

    Lindgren (upper body) skated with Adam Fox on the Rangers' top pairing during Thursday's practice, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Lindgren missed the final three games of the 2020-21 season with an upper-body injury, but he appeared fully fit as New York's training camp got underway Thursday. The 23-year-old defender picked up 16 points while posting a plus-20 rating in 51 games last campaign.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Inks three-year deal

    Lindgren (upper body) secured a three-year, $9 million contract with the Rangers on Monday.

    Lindgren set new personal bests in assists (15), points (16) and ice time (20:00 per game) despite playing in just 51 games due to the shortened season. With a full NHL campaign, the 23-year-old defenseman should be capable of pushing for the 20-point threshold but is unlikely to claim a role on the power play, which will limit his fantasy ceiling.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Out final three matches

    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.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Still shelved Monday

    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.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Out Saturday

    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.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Deemed day-to-day

    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.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Injured in Thursday's loss

    Lindgren (upper body) was injured in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Islanders, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Lindgren went head-first into the glass near the benches during the third period and immediately went to the locker room. Head coach David Quinn expects an update to be available Friday. Lindgren's status ahead of Saturday's game versus the Islanders will likely be determined with that update.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Gathers helper Sunday

    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.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Two helpers Saturday

    Lindgren picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    He also added three shots, three hits and a plus-3 rating to his ledger. Lindgren set a new career high at 16 points (one goal, 15 helpers) on the season in the process, and he's found another gear over the last few weeks, racking up one goal and six points over the last 10 games.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Pots first goal of season

    Lindgren scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Devils.

    Lindgren scored the second of New York's three first-period goals as part of a well-rounded performance that also included three shots, three blocks, four hits and a plus-2 rating. The stay-at-home defenseman usually defers to Norris Trophy candidate Adam Fox in the offensive zone, but Lindgren has been unlucky not to score more given his willingness to step up in the offensive zone, so hopefully seeing the red light go on will lead to more production for the 23-year-old Minnesota native.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Ends lengthy point drought

    Lindgren racked up two assists -- one shorthanded -- in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Washington.

    Lindgren didn't do much to earn the multi-point night, but it will feel good nonetheless after a 13-game point drought. His first assist entailed passing the puck to the pinching Adam Fox, who did the heavy lifting by knifing through the defense and roofing a backhand for what proved to be the game-winning goal. All Lindgren did for his second helper was move the puck up the boards to Pavel Buchnevich, and the Russian winger proceeded to fire the puck into an empty net from the Rangers' zone to seal the win with Washington on the power play. All 11 of Lindgren's points this season have been assists, and he's stuck on one goal through 99 career NHL games.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Point drought hits double digits

    Lindgren had a game-high four hits to go with a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in Monday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.

    Lindgren is the stay-at-home complement to the skilled Adam Fox, who joined the rush regularly en route to three points in what was his 100th NHL game. Fox should continue to do most of the heavy lifting offensively on this pairing, while Lindgren has now gone 10 games without a point and is still searching for his first goal of the season.

  • Rangers' Ryan Lindgren: Picks up two helpers against B's

    Lindgren recorded two assists while adding four hits, one blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 6-2 win over the Bruins.

    The 23-year-old blueliner extended his point streak to three games with a first-period helper on the game's opening goal by Julien Gauthier. He then picked up another in the third on a Pavel Buchnevich tally as the Rangers pulled away. Lindgren had just 14 points in 65 career NHL games coming into the season, but he's well ahead of that pace this year with seven points (all assists) through 18 contests.
