Stars' Esa Lindell: Provides assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell registered an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.

Lindell went 12 straight games without a point -- the assist was just his second point in February. The Finnish blueliner has contributed 21 blocked shots, 20 hits and 19 shots through 14 appearances this month. For the season, he's at 23 points, 118 blocks and 82 hits through 64 outings.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Lacking offense recently
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell is in an eight-game point drought.

Lindell has posted 11 hits, 12 blocked shots and 10 shots on goal in that span. The Finn is stuck on 22 points to go with 112 blocks, 73 hits and 78 shots through 59 games this season. His defensive presence will keep him in the lineup, but fantasy owners need to see more offense to rely on him.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Posts helper in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell generated an assist and three blocked shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Devils.

Lindell sparked a play that resulted in Joe Pavelski's overtime tally. The Finnish defenseman is up to 22 points, 68 shots on goal, 100 blocks and 62 hits through 51 games. He's one of 14 blueliners in the league to reach 100 blocks so far this season. Reliable on both ends of the rink, Lindell is a solid add for fantasy rosters.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Snags helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell provided an assist, four blocked shots and two hits in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Lightning.

The Finnish defenseman helped out on Denis Gurianov's second-period tally. Lindell is up to 21 points (three goals, 18 helpers), 94 blocks, 57 hits and a plus-4 rating in 49 games this season. He should continue to see top-pairing minutes more often than not.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Buries overtime winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell scored a goal and blocked five shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Lindell saw a five-game point streak end in Saturday's loss to the Sharks. The Finn didn't wait long to return to form, and his third goal of the season couldn't have come at a better time. He's up to 20 points, 59 shots on goal, 87 blocks and 50 hits in 46 games. With John Klingberg back from a lower-body injury, Lindell isn't likely to see much premium power-play time going forward, which could cause the latter to slow his scoring pace a bit.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Five-game, eight-assist streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell notched a power-play helper in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.

Lindell's helper binge continued Thursday -- he now has eight assists in his last three outings and three straight games with a helper on the power play. The Finn is up to 19 points, 79 blocked shots, 58 shots on goal and 47 hits through 44 games.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Adds pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell recorded two assists, including one on the power play, in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Kings.

Lindell has thrived in a large role since John Klingberg (lower body) exited the lineup. In the last two games, Lindell has five helpers, with two of them coming on the power play. He's produced seven assists in his last four outings and now has 18 points, 77 blocked shots, 57 shots on goal and a plus-8 rating in 43 appearances overall.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Trio of assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell racked up three assists and skated a game-high 25:26 in Friday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

Two of Lindell's helpers were of the shorthanded variety, and the other came on a Radek Faksa power-play goal in the second period. The Finnish defenseman saw big minutes due to John Klingberg's absence with a lower-body injury. Lindell has five assists over his last three games, and he'll be poised to keep the surge going as long as Klingberg remains out. With 16 points, 75 blocked shots, 57 shots on goal, 46 hits and a plus-8 rating through 42 appearances this year, Lindell could make for a good DFS option in the near-term.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Generates power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stars' Esa Lindell: First goal in over a month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell scored on his lone shot and had a pair of hits in a 4-2 win over Vegas on Monday.

Lindell scored with under seven minutes left in the first period to put the Stars ahead 2-0. It was just his second goal of the season and his first since Oct. 19, ending a 14-game drought. The 25-year-old established career highs in points (32) and goals (11) last season, but that production has tailed off in 2019-20 with just two goals and six assists after 25 games.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Produces assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell has four helpers, 12 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating in his last six games. The Finnish blueliner is at six points and 46 blocks through 22 appearances overall this season. Given the recent uptick in offense, Lindell may be playing his way back into fantasy relevance.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Helps out in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Oilers.

Lindell has three assists and a plus-6 rating in his last five games. He's been forced to fill the void with John Klingberg sidelined by a lower-body injury. Lindell has five points, 25 shots on goal and 44 blocked shots in 21 contests this season.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Assists in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell recorded an assist in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.

The Finn set up Radek Faksa's go-ahead goal in the second period, although it wouldn't stand up by the end of the game. Lindell has just four points in 18 games this year, well below the 32-point pace he produced last season. He's still a strong shot-blocking option -- Lindell has 39 blocks in 2019-20, good for eighth in the league.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Earns power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell generated a power-play assist, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.

Lindell had to pick up some of the slack after John Klingberg (lower body) exited the contest after two periods. Lindell only has three points in 17 games this season, but with Klingberg out for at least the next two weeks, more point-production responsibility will fall on the Finn's shoulders. He had 32 points in 82 games last year, so Lindell has shown the ability to produce more than he has so far in 2019-20.

Stars' Esa Lindell: Returns to Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindell (face) was able to return to Saturday's game against the Penguins, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Lindell was able to avoid a serious injury when he took a puck to the face. His return should provide a major boost for the Stars defensively. Lindell will wear a face shield for the rest of this one and likely for at least a few games beyond.
