Lindholm (wrist) could miss the rest of the season, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Lindholm has been out since March 1 with a broken wrist. He was initially given a six-week timeline, but it appears he's not progressing as quickly as expected. The Swede has yet to return to practice, so he's likely at least another week or two away from returning. General manager Bob Murray indicated he wouldn't just bring the defenseman back for the final week of the season. It makes sense for the Ducks to be cautious with the 27-year-old stalwart of their blue line in a rebuilding year -- there's no playoff push to rush him back for. With Lindholm out, top prospect Jamie Drysdale has taken on a starting role.
Lindholm (wrist) was placed on long-term injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.
Lindholm is two weeks into his six-week timeline for recovery from a broken wrist. He's not expected back until April at the earliest, and the Ducks are far out of the playoff picture, so they have no need to rush him back. By putting the Swede on LTIR, the Ducks gain cap flexibility.
Lindholm is dealing with a fractured wrist and is expected to miss about six weeks, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Lindholm suffered this injury Feb. 27 against the Golden Knights, and he was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. This is a significant loss for the Ducks' blue line, as Lindholm averages 22:02 of ice time per game, including minutes on both the power play and the penalty kill. Cam Fowler should handle increased duties, and Josh Mahura should stay in the rotation as long as Lindholm is out.
Lindholm (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
The 27-year-old typically handles top-pairing minutes, so it's a major loss with the Ducks up against the Blues and Avalanche over the next two games. Lindholm will be eligible to return for Saturday's road contest against the Avalanche.
Lindholm (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday against St. Louis, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Lindholm will miss a second straight game with his undisclosed issue. Josh Maura will likely continue to hold onto a spot in the lineup until Lindholm is ready to return.
Lindholm (undisclosed) won't play in Monday's game versus the Blues.
Lindholm missed three games with a lower-body injury before returning for Saturday's loss to the Golden Knights. Head coach Dallas Eakins didn't reveal why Lindholm is unavailable, so it's unclear if this injury is related. Josh Mahura will re-enter the lineup in Lindholm's place.
Lindholm (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.
This is a strong indication that Lindholm will return to the lineup versus the Golden Knights. He's missed three contests with the injury. Should he be in the lineup, he'll likely take on a top-four role and could also earn some power-play time.
Lindholm (lower body) practiced without limitation Friday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Barring any setbacks, Lindholm stands a good chance to return to action in Saturday's game versus the Golden Knights. The 27-year-old will first need to be activated from injured reserve. Once he's given the green light, he should handle a significant role on the blue line, as he averaged 22:16 of ice time per game through the first 17 contests of the season, adding six points in the process.
Lindholm (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Lindholm obviously won't be available for Wednesday's game against Arizona, but he'll be eligible to be activated off IR whenever he's deemed fit to play. The 27-year-old blueliner has picked up six points through 17 games this campaign.
Lindholm (lower body) will not be available for Monday's contest against the Coyotes.
Lindholm will miss a second straight contest with his lower-body issue. The 6-foot-3 blueliner has six points through 17 games this season. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's rematch with Arizona.
Lindholm (lower body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Wild, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Lindholm suffered a lower-body injury during Thursday's loss to the Wild, and he'll miss his first game of the year as a result. The 27-year-old has recorded six points and 27 shots on net through the first 17 games. Josh Mahura will enter the lineup in Lindholm's place.
Lindholm (lower body) didn't play in the third period of Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Wild, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Lindholm played only 13:11 in the contest, but it's unclear how he was injured. The 27-year-old occupies a top-pairing role for the Ducks, so it'll be tough for any one player to fill in if he misses time. The Ducks' next game is Saturday versus the Wild -- if Lindholm can't play, Andy Welinski could enter the lineup, while Ben Hutton would probably take on additional playing time.
Lindholm posted an assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Golden Knights.
Lindholm's secondary helper on Troy Terry's goal in the third period was the former's 200th NHL point. Lindholm reached the milestone in 517 games, and he has 52 goals and 148 assists over parts of eight seasons. The 27-year-old Swede has produced an assist in each of the last three games, giving him six points, 23 shots on net, 16 blocked shots and 12 PIM in 14 contests this year.
Lindholm posted an assist in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Sharks.
Lindholm had a shot attempt in the second period that bounced into the net off Isac Lundestrom. It was the latter's first NHL goal. Lindholm may be heating up, as he has three assists in his last four contests. The Swede is up to five points, 14 blocked shots, 22 shots on net and 12 PIM through 13 contests this season. The Ducks' offense is abysmal so far, with just three games at three or more goals, which has led to suppressed point totals throughout the lineup.
Lindholm notched an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Sharks.
Lindholm produced the secondary helper on Maxime Comtois' game-tying goal at 11:33 of the third period. While the Ducks didn't get a win, it was still a decent performance from Lindholm, who also had a hit and a blocked shot. The Swede is up to four points, 21 shots, 12 PIM and 14 blocks through 12 contests this season.
Lindholm posted a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.
Lindholm produced the secondary helper on Jakob Silfverberg's opening tally. It's been a slow start for the 27-year-old Lindholm, with three points, 13 blocked shots, 10 PIM and a minus-4 rating in 10 games. Part of his struggles can be attributed to the Ducks' league-worst offense of 1.6 goals per game, but he is also counted on for a lot of defensive work that limits his chances to contribute on the scoresheet.
Lindholm scored an empty-net goal, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Lindholm provided an insurance tally in the third period to assure the Ducks' win. It's his second goal and point of the year, to go with 11 shots on net, 10 blocked shots and five hits through six appearances. Lindholm isn't getting much power-play time with Kevin Shattenkirk and Cam Fowler manning the point this year, but he should continue to see plenty of ice time at even strength.
Lindholm scored a goal on five shots and added four PIM in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.
The Swede struck only 47 seconds into the second period, tying the game at 1-1. Lindholm, like many of the Ducks' stars, has struggled to produce much offense in the early going. The goal was his first point of the year to go with a plus-1 rating, nine blocked shots and 10 shots on net. With just eight goals scored through five contests as a team, it's tough to trust any of the Ducks' skaters at this point.
Lindholm (upper body) was among several Ducks given the all-clear by general manager Bob Murray.
Lindholm failed to reach the 25-point mark for just the second time in his seven-year NHL career. Injuries have limited the blueliner throughout his career, as he's managed to log over 70 games in a season just once in the previous four campaigns. If he can stay healthy, the 26-year-old is capable of providing mid-range fantasy value given his offensive capabilities.
Lindholm (upper body) recorded two goals and 23 points in 56 games this season.
Both of the above numbers are career lows for the seventh-year NHLer, with his shooting percentage (1.8) and hits (34) both following suit in that regard. However, it's not all doom and gloom with Lindholm, as his scoring pace of 0.41 points per game was a few ticks above last year and would amount to 34 -- his career high -- over a full season. With the Ducks eliminated from the league's announced 24-team playoff format and not suiting up until next season, Lindholm should be over any lingering effects of his injury once regular-season hockey returns to Anaheim.
