Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Role reduced in March
Lundkvist has played in only seven of the Stars' 14 games in March.
Lundkvist's reduced role has come as the playoff race intensifies. The Stars clearly aren't ready to fully trust the 22-year-old in his own zone, leading to more playing time for veteran Joel Hanley while Lundkvist watches from the press box. Lundkvist hasn't helped his cause with zero points and just five shots on goal in March, though he's produced 16 points, 94 shots, 67 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 60 outings overall....

Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Finds twine in OT loss
Lundkvist scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks.
Lundkvist's third-period tally was what forced overtime. It also snapped a seven-game point drought for the defenseman, who has struggled to contribute from a third-pairing role lately. He's at six goals, 16 points, 89 shots on net, 57 blocked shots, 45 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 53 contests overall. If the Stars add to their blue line at the trade deadline, Lundkvist's place in the lineup could be at risk.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Opens scoring Monday
Lundkvist scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over the Ducks.
Lundkvist had been a healthy scratch for four of the last five games before the All-Star break. His opening tally at 8:08 of the first period should help the 22-year-old maintain a spot in the lineup over Joel Hanley for a while. As a young blueliner, there have been some ups and downs for Lundkvist in 2022-23, but he's managed five goals, 15 points, 74 shots on net, 49 blocked shots, 42 hits and a minus-6 rating through 45 contests....

Lundkvist logged an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Sharks.
Lundkvist earned his 10th assist of the season on Radek Faksa's second-period marker. The 22-year-old Lundkvist has helpers in back-to-back games, giving him 14 points through 43 outings overall. The defenseman has added 69 shots on net, 48 blocked shots, 41 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-6 rating -- he's shown some flashes of scoring talent, but he's yet to find much consistency in a bottom-four role....

Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Records helper in win
Lundkvist logged an assist and two hits in Monday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights.
Lundkvist ended a three-game point drought when he set up Ryan Suter's insurance goal in the third period. The 22-year-old Lundkvist doesn't have a ton of consistency on offense yet, but he's played well enough to regularly hold a spot in the lineup over Joel Hanley. Lundkvist is up to four goals, nine assists, 66 shots on net, 48 blocked shots, 41 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 42 contests.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Strikes on power play
Lundkvist scored a power-play goal on four shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Panthers.
Lundkvist had three helpers over his last 12 games since he last scored a goal. The defenseman was able to pot his fourth tally of the season just over halfway through the second period, and it held up as his second game-winner of the campaign. The 22-year-old blueliner has 12 points (three on the power play), 63 shots on net, 43 blocked shots, 38 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 38 contests. He's moved around the Stars' defense at times, but his instincts on offense are strong enough to earn Lundkvist some power-play time, making him a depth option in deeper fantasy formats....

Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Sets up go-ahead goal
Lundkvist produced an assist and blocked four shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Wild.
Lundkvist had a shot attempt in the third period that Wyatt Johnston tipped in for the go-ahead goal. It was ultimately the game-winner, and it gave Lundkvist two helpers in his last four games. The 22-year-old blueliner is seeing top-pairing usage at even strength, but his power-play time has been inconsistent lately. He's at 11 points (three goals, eight helpers), 56 shots on net, 41 blocked shots, 33 hits, 22 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 34 outings.... See More ... See Less

Lundkvist produced a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers.
Lundkvist helped out on a Tyler Seguin tally in the second period, which tied the game at 3-3. The assist snapped a four-game point drought for Lundkvist. The 22-year-old blueliner will likely continue to have ups and downs on offense, but it appears he's mostly locked down a place in the lineup with time on the second power-play unit. The Swede has 10 points (two on the power play), 53 shots on net, 34 blocked shots, 33 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-3 rating in 31 outings overall.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Sets up early goal in loss
Lundkvist registered an assist in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Penguins.
Lundkvist set up Roope Hintz 19 seconds into the game for the Stars' lone goal. The 22-year-old Lundkvist has two goals and two helpers in his last three games, and his 19:23 of ice time Monday was his most since Nov. 13. The blueliner has three goals, six assists, 47 shots on net, 26 blocked shots, 24 hits, 18 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 26 appearances. His role on the second power-play unit could give him some appeal in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Scores overtime winner
Lundkvist found the back of the net in Dallas' 3-2 overtime victory against Detroit on Saturday.
Lundkvist's goal was the overtime winner. He's up to three goals and eight points in 25 games this season. The 22-year-old was limited to one goal and no assists in 15 contests from Oct. 29-Dec. 6, but Lundkvist has since recorded at least a point in back-to-back games, so perhaps he's turned a corner....

Lundkvist helped out on the second of Miro Heiskanen's tallies in the first period and added the game-tying goal in the third. The two-point effort snapped a six-game dry spell for Lundkvist, who was recently a healthy scratch for three contests. The 22-year-old defenseman has two goals, seven points, 45 shots on net, 25 blocked shots, 23 hits, 18 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 24 appearances, and more outings like this one will likely be enough to keep him from sitting out often....

He's at five points, 34 shots on net, 17 blocked shots, 14 hits, 12 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 17 appearances.

Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Earns fourth helper
Lundkvist was credited with an assist during a 2-0 victory over the Capitals on Thursday.

On Tuesday, he garnered a season-high 22:04. With three assists during his past five games, Lundkvist is adding offense to his game with Ryan Suter as his top-pairing partner.... See More ...

The Swedish defenseman has added eight shots on net, eight blocked shots and a plus-2 rating while seeing third-pairing minutes and time on the second power-play unit.

He looks like a sneaky depth add for fantasy managers in deep formats.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Draws power-play assist in debut
Lundkvist registered a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Predators.
Lundkvist made the Stars' Opening Night roster after he was traded from the Rangers in September. The 22-year-old logged four points in 25 games last season, but he should be able to take on a slightly larger role with his new team. The Swede posted 15:28 of ice time in a bottom-four role, though his presence on the second power-play unit is encouraging for his offense. He should have no trouble outplaying Joel Hanley to maintain a place in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Nils Lundkvist: Dealt to Stars
The Rangers traded Lundkvist to Dallas on Monday for two draft picks, including a 2023 first-round pick, Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff reports.
Lundkvist came over from Sweden last season and split time between the NHL and AHL levels after he failed to hold on to a regular role on the Rangers' blue line. The 22-year-old tallied four points in 25 NHL games and 15 points in 34 appearances with AHL Hartford. Selected in the first round of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Lundkvist will get a fresh start in Dallas, where he should slide right into a top-four role and compete for some power-play time....
