  • Par Lindholm: Released from contract

    Lindholm will play in Sweden after being released from his NHL contract, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.

    Prior to the move, Lindholm had been a spare forward for the Bruins, appearing in just one game this season. The 29-year-old will now play for Skelleftea AIK, the team he played for prior to heading to North America in advance of the 2018-19 campaign. Over the course of 106 NHL games, Lindholm logged four goals and 19 points.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Reportedly returning to Sweden

    Lindholm is expected to return to his native Sweden after the Bruins waived him Sunday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

    Lindholm suited up for just one game with the Bruins this year. He often shuffled between the taxi squad and the active roster. In 106 NHL games, the 29-year-old forward collected 19 points, but there's a realistic chance he could play out the rest of his career overseas after never finding much more than a bottom-six role in the NHL.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Placed on waivers

    The Bruins shifted Lindholm to waivers Sunday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Lindholm continued to shuffle between the active roster and taxi squad, as he's only suited up in one game this season for Boston. If Lindholm goes unclaimed, he's expected to revert to the Bruins' taxi squad.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Shuffled to taxi squad

    The Bruins reassigned Lindholm to the taxi squad Thursday, per CBS Sports.

    Lindholm was promoted to the active roster ahead of Wednesday's game against the Flyers, but he didn't end up playing in the contest. The 29-year-old has seen just one game this season, skating in 12:55 of ice time. He could have an opportunity to suit up in Friday's game against the Flyers again.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Sent to taxi squad

    The Bruins assigned Lindholm to their taxi squad Saturday, per TSN.

    Lindholm has drawn into one game with the Bruins this season, going scoreless in 12:55 of ice time Thursday against Pittsburgh. The 29-year-old pivot will likely continue to bounce between levels throughout the campaign.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Could play Thursday

    Lindholm skated on a line with Trent Frederic and Jack Studnicka during Wednesday's practice.

    With Jake DeBrusk (lower body) set to miss at least one game, it looks like Lindholm -- who is on the Bruins' taxi squad -- could draw into the team's lineup Thursday against the Penguins. Lindholm saw action in 40 games with Boston last season, recording three goals and six points in that span. The 29-year-old has been serving as a spare forward in practice of late, but as the current campaign rolls along, Lindholm figures to see spot duty when the team is shorthanded up front.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Placed on waivers

    The Bruins have waived Lindholm, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Lindholm, who was a spare forward at practice Wednesday, is thus a candidate to land on the Bruins' taxi squad if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Tips home goal in return to lineup

    Lindholm picked up the game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

    After being a healthy scratch for the last four-straight games, Lindholm was able to pot his third goal of the season. He was only placed in the lineup when David Krejci (undisclosed) became a late scratch and only saw 8:07 of ice time, so if Krejci is okay to play Sunday, expect Lindholm to be the odd-man-out once again.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Gets first helper

    Lindholm picked up an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Predators.

    The helper was Lindholm's third point of the season, as all but two Bruins forwards picked up a point in the contest. The 28-year-old tallied 13 points in 65 games last season in his NHL debut, but has been in and out of the Bruins' bottom six this year.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Takes a seat

    Lindholm was not in the lineup for Monday's 5-2 loss to the Senators.

    With the return of Patrice Bergeron from a lower-body injury, Lindholm took a spot in the press box with David Backes. In 20 games this season the 27-year-old Swede has one point, 16 shots and 12 hits.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Will play Tuesday

    Lindholm (laceration) will be back in the lineup against Montreal on Tuesday.

    Lindholm slots back into the lineup after just one game on the shelf. While the center projects into a fourth-line role due to the absence of Patrice Bergeron (lower body) and Brett Ritchie (infection), the club could shake things up with additional call-ups. In 13 appearances this season, the Swede recorded one assist and14 shots while averaging a mere 11:06 of ice time.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Unable to play Saturday

    Lindholm (laceration) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Wild, Conor Ryan of reports.

    Lindholm required 18 stitches after suffering a cut during Thursday's win over the Sabres, and he won't be able to suit up. Despite the injury, the notion that he had a shot to play bodes well for his chances of playing Tuesday against Montreal, although his injury will need to heal up enough by then.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Iffy for Saturday

    Lindholm (laceration) is considered questionable for Saturday's matchup with Minnesota.

    Lindholm suffered a cut that required 18 stitches during Thursday's win over Buffalo, but he still might be able to tough it out against the Wild. Confirmation on his status for that contest should surface prior to puck drop.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Back in action

    Lindholm (upper body) was activated off injured reserve and will play in Sunday's game against the Flyers, Marisa Ingemi of the Boston Herald reports.

    Lindholm has been held out since Oct. 28 with the issue and has stayed on IR ever since. Now that he's finally healthy, look for the Swede to return to his bottom-six role for Sunday's contest.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Physical in return

    Lindholm (upper body) skated 9:34 and recorded three hits in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Flyers.

    Lindholm missed five games with the injury. He has just one goal, seven shots and eight hits in eight appearances this year. His bottom-six role on a top-heavy Bruins team won't typically generate much offense.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Participates in morning skate

    Lindholm (upper body) was on the ice for Sunday's morning skate, which could pave the way for him to rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Flyers.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Surfaces on IR

    The Bruins placed Lindholm (upper body) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Lindholm's placement on IR was almost certainly made retroactive to Oct. 28, so although he won't be in the lineup Tuesday against Montreal, he'll be eligible to return whenever he's deemed fit to play. The 28-year-old forward has notched one goal while averaging 11:20 of ice time in seven games this campaign.

  • Bruins' Par Lindholm: Won't play Monday

    Lindholm (upper body) will not be in the lineup for Monday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Matt Kalman of reports.

    Even if Lindholm was healthy, coach Bruce Cassidy may have kept him out of the lineup in favor of the recently recalled Cameron Hughes. Once cleared to play, the 27-year-old Lindholm could find himself making the trek to AHL Providence given the emerging players competing for minutes in Boston.
