Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Spotted at training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren (undisclosed) is on the ice for day two of the Canadiens' training camp, John Lu of reports.

Lindgren exited Montreal's final practice prior to the stoppage in March with an apparent injury after taking a shot up high, but he's had plenty of time to make a full recovery from whatever was ailing him. The 26-year-old American is expected to serve as Carey Price's backup once postseason play gets underway.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Exits practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren exited Wednesday's practice with an apparent injury after taking a shot up high, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

The Canadiens have yet to shed any light on Lindgren's condition, but he should be considered questionable at best for Thursday's matchup with Buffalo at this point. If he's unable to go, Montreal will need to recall a netminder to fill in against the Sabres.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Rare start ends in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren made 28 saves in a 4-1 loss to Florida on Saturday.

He allowed three goals. Lindgren doesn't make enough starts to be carried in most leagues. And when he does, he plays behind a team that won't make the postseason. Avoid Lindgren, unless you are truly desperate.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Getting another look
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will start Saturday's game in Florida, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

With the reality of a non-playoff season setting in, Lindgren should spell Carey Price more frequently down the stretch. He last took the ice a week ago, coming away with 27 saves in a 4-3 win over Carolina on Feb. 29.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Rare start ends in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren made 27 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over Carolina on Saturday.

It was his first start since Feb. 4. The Habs roared out to a 3-0 lead only to let the Canes back in the game. Lindgren isn't worthy of ownership -- starter Carey Price had started the previous 11 games and 17 of the Habs' last 18.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Set for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will tend the home twine against Carolina on Saturday, John Lu of reports.

Carey Price will get a night off after 11 straight starts, so Lindgren will make his first appearance since Feb. 4. The 26-year-old netminder has struggled at the top level this year, posting an .880 save percentage, 3.49 GAA and a 1-3-0 record. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes enter this contest with wins in four of their last five road contests while averaging 4.4 goals per game in that dominant road stretch.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Outlasts Devils in shootout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren allowed four goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over New Jersey.

It was hardly a banner night for the young netminder, but Lindgren will take the win after losing his first three starts of the season. With Carey Price battling the flu, Lindgren could receive another start or two, though rookie Cayden Primeau could get a look Thursday against visiting Anaheim, as well.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Slated to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren is expected to start in Tuesday's road game versus the Devils, Eric Engels of reports.

Lindgren hasn't played since Jan. 15, but with Carey Price battling a sickness, the 26-year-old will get the nod. Over three starts this year, Lindgren has lost each contest in regulation while recording an .892 save percentage. This is a good chance for Lindgren to get his first win since last year's season finale, as the Devils have lost five of the last six contests.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Takes loss versus Blackhawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren allowed four goals on 28 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

Lindgren simply couldn't match the performance of Corey Crawford in the other crease. The Minnesota native has now allowed 10 goals on 93 shots in three starts, all losses. Lindgren will return to the backup role Thursday as Carey Price is set to start in Philadelphia.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: In goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will get the starting nod at home versus Chicago on Wednesday.

Lindgren will make his third appearance of the season, having posted a 0-2-0 record and 3.08 GAA in his prior two contets. The 25-year-old could see a few extra starts heading down the stretch, especially if Montreal finds itself on the outside looking in for a playoff spot. With a back-to-back on the schedule, starter Carey Price is set to be between the pipes versus the Flyers on Thursday.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Canadiens collapse late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren allowed four goals on 30 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.

Lindgren was solid despite the four goals allowed and deserved a better fate Tuesday night. Two unanswered goals by the hosts gave them the lead for good, causing Montreal to drop a seventh straight game. Lindgren is now winless in two starts at the NHL level this season. Even Carey Price is hard to trust in Montreal's net at the moment, so it's best to also avoid Lindgren until the team's form improves.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Set for Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will guard the road net in Tuesday's matchup versus the Red Wings.

Lindgren has only made one NHL start this season, and he was excellent, steering away 33 of 35 shots. The 26-year-old gets the nod again on the second half of back-to-back contests, and he draws a favorable matchup. The Red Wings rank last in the league with just 2.14 goals per game.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Tough-luck season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren made 33 saves Tuesday in a 3-1 loss to Carolina.

The 26-year-old was making his first NHL appearance of the season after being recalled from AHL Laval on Dec. 14. Lindgren posted an .893 save percentage in the minors this season and doesn't figure to see many starting assignments behind workhorse Carey Price.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Tending twine Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will guard the cage versus the Hurricanes on the road Tuesday.

Lindgren will be making his first start of the 2019-20 campaign. The youngster appeared in just one NHL game for the Habs last year in which he posted gave up five goals on 49 shots in a winning effort. While the Minnesota native is getting a start outside of a back-to-back, he is unlikely to steal too many starts away from Carey Price.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Bumps up a rank
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens recalled Lindgren from AHL Laval on Saturday.

The Canadiens don't have any back-to-back games in the immediate future, so Lindgren isn't expected to get much, if any, playing time behind Carey Price. The 25-year-old has struggled in the minors this season, posting an .893 save percentage and 7-6-2 record.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Backstops Laval in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren stopped 26 of 28 shots for AHL Laval in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Cleveland.

Lindgren started the Rocket's first game after the Canadiens called up Cayden Primeau and demoted Keith Kinkaid. Lindgren got off to a shaky start this season but has righted himself over the last two weeks. The Canadiens have two back-to-back sets coming up in the next week, so Primeau, who is considered the future for Montreal, should see action immediately. If the NHL proves to be too much for the 20-year-old, Lindgren, who has a smattering of NHL experience (18 games), could be in line for a promotion.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Headed for AHL Laval
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren was demoted to the minors Monday.

Lindgren likely was hoping to earn the No. 2 job this offseason, but instead finds himself once again suiting up in the minors. The signing of Keith Kinkaid over the summer likely sealed the 25-year-old Lindgren's fate. In 33 minor-league appearances last year, the netminder went 11-20-1 with a disappointing .884 save percentage.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Facing Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will start Monday's preseason game against the Maple Leafs, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Lindgren allowed three goals on 21 shots in a win over the Panthers last week but he's a near lock to head back to AHL Laval while Keith Kinkaid serves as the NHL backup. The 25-year-old Lindgren recorded a 2.94 GAA and a .884 save percentage in 33 AHL contests last season.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Plays acrobat in Habs' last game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren made 44 saves in a 6-5 shootout win over Toronto on Saturday.

Sure, there were a lot of goals scored, but Lindgren was outstanding. He's quiet an acrobat. The Habs will need to make a contract decision on Lindgren soon and this performance will go a long way toward making him a part of Montreal's future.

Canadiens' Charlie Lindgren: Covering cage in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindgren will draw the start Saturday against the visiting Maple Leafs, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

Lindgren will be making his first NHL appearance since March of 2018. It makes sense that he'd get the nod over franchise tender Carey Price, seeing as how the Habs are eliminated from playoff contention. The silver lining for those of you wanting to stream Lindgren in DFS is that the Leafs will be resting their fair share of regulars -- particularly on the blue line -- in the upcoming contest. Lindgren is 7-8-0 (two shutouts) with a 2.78 GAA and .914 save percentage over 17 career top-level starts.
