Lindgren (upper body) secured a three-year, $9 million contract with the Rangers on Monday.
Lindgren set new personal bests in assists (15), points (16) and ice time (20:00 per game) despite playing in just 51 games due to the shortened season. With a full NHL campaign, the 23-year-old defenseman should be capable of pushing for the 20-point threshold but is unlikely to claim a role on the power play, which will limit his fantasy ceiling.
Lindgren (upper body) will not be available for the Rangers' last three contests.
Despite playing in just 51 games this season, Lindgren set new personal bests in assists (15), points (16), shots (65) and ice time per game (20:00). Heading into next season, Lindgren should continue to log plenty of minutes and could even top those numbers.
Lindgren (upper body) won't play in Monday's matchup with Washington.
Prior to getting hurt, Lindgren managed just one point in his previous seven contests, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on much in the way of offensive support from the blueliner even once cleared to play. With Jacob Trouba (upper body) also sidelined, Zachary Jones and Tarmo Reunanen could both be tasked with logging significant minutes down the stretch.
Lindgren (upper body) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Islanders, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
It will be the first missed game of the season for the 23-year-old, who's managed 16 points across 51 contests in his second full NHL campaign. Lindgren's next chance to return comes Monday against visiting Washington.
Lindgren is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Although Lindgren's technically considered day-to-day, he should probably be considered a longshot at best for Saturday's rematch with the Islanders. If Lindgren's unable to go, Anthony Bitetto or Tarmo Reunanen will likely draw into the lineup against the Isles.
Lindgren (upper body) was injured in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Islanders, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
Lindgren went head-first into the glass near the benches during the third period and immediately went to the locker room. Head coach David Quinn expects an update to be available Friday. Lindgren's status ahead of Saturday's game versus the Islanders will likely be determined with that update.
Lindgren notched an assist, five hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Sabres.
Lindgren had the secondary assist on Mika Zibanejad's opening tally in the first period. Through 49 games this season, Lindgren has taken a step forward on offense. He has 16 points, a plus-20 rating, 60 shots on net, 94 hits, 50 blocked shots and 35 PIM this season as a defensive complement to Adam Fox on the top pairing.
Lindgren picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Devils.
He also added three shots, three hits and a plus-3 rating to his ledger. Lindgren set a new career high at 16 points (one goal, 15 helpers) on the season in the process, and he's found another gear over the last few weeks, racking up one goal and six points over the last 10 games.
Lindgren scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Devils.
Lindgren scored the second of New York's three first-period goals as part of a well-rounded performance that also included three shots, three blocks, four hits and a plus-2 rating. The stay-at-home defenseman usually defers to Norris Trophy candidate Adam Fox in the offensive zone, but Lindgren has been unlucky not to score more given his willingness to step up in the offensive zone, so hopefully seeing the red light go on will lead to more production for the 23-year-old Minnesota native.
Lindgren racked up two assists -- one shorthanded -- in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Washington.
Lindgren didn't do much to earn the multi-point night, but it will feel good nonetheless after a 13-game point drought. His first assist entailed passing the puck to the pinching Adam Fox, who did the heavy lifting by knifing through the defense and roofing a backhand for what proved to be the game-winning goal. All Lindgren did for his second helper was move the puck up the boards to Pavel Buchnevich, and the Russian winger proceeded to fire the puck into an empty net from the Rangers' zone to seal the win with Washington on the power play. All 11 of Lindgren's points this season have been assists, and he's stuck on one goal through 99 career NHL games.
Lindgren had a game-high four hits to go with a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in Monday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.
Lindgren is the stay-at-home complement to the skilled Adam Fox, who joined the rush regularly en route to three points in what was his 100th NHL game. Fox should continue to do most of the heavy lifting offensively on this pairing, while Lindgren has now gone 10 games without a point and is still searching for his first goal of the season.
Lindgren recorded two assists while adding four hits, one blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 6-2 win over the Bruins.
The 23-year-old blueliner extended his point streak to three games with a first-period helper on the game's opening goal by Julien Gauthier. He then picked up another in the third on a Pavel Buchnevich tally as the Rangers pulled away. Lindgren had just 14 points in 65 career NHL games coming into the season, but he's well ahead of that pace this year with seven points (all assists) through 18 contests.
Lindgren produced an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins.
Lindgren's shot attempt in the third period was tipped on goal by Brendan Lemieux and then buried on a rebound by Kevin Rooney. It was the third assist in five games for Lindgren, which accounts for all of his offense this season. The 22-year-old rearguard also has 19 hits, 11 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 12 contests.
Lindgren dished out an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Lindgren has helpers in consecutive games after starting the season on a seven-game point drought. He potted only one goal in 60 games as a rookie last season and plays a stay-at-home role, so Lindgren's contributions on offense figure to remain modest.
Lindgren picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.
The rookie produced the first multi-point performance of his career, helping set up Artemi Panarin in the first period and Brett Howden in the third. Lindgren led all Rangers blueliners in TOI in the game at 21:40 as part of the top pairing with Adam Fox, and his role seems to be on the upswing following the Brady Skjei trade. Unless Lindgren starts seeing power-play shifts, however, his fantasy value will remain marginal -- on the season, he has only one goal and 12 points through 52 games with 78 hits, 59 blocked shots, 39 shots on goal and a plus-13 rating.
Lindgren finished with two shots, two PIM and three hits in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Boston.
Lindgren was on the receiving end of multiple cheap shots from noted cheap-shot artist Brad Marchand, and the blueliner was served with a two-minute roughing minor for retaliation at one point. He also got hit with a high stick that opened up a gash near his eye, but Lindgren received treatment on the bench and was able to stay in the game. The rookie defenseman has provided solid physicality for a Rangers team that's largely lacking in that department, but Lindgren's fantasy value is minimal given his meager total of 10 points in 48 games this season.
Lindgren (lower body) registered an assist and was plus-2 with one hit in Saturday's 5-2 loss to St. Louis.
Lindgren suffered his injury Thursday when he blocked a shot against New Jersey but was right back in the lineup Saturday. The 21-year-old assisted on the game's opening goal for his first point since Dec. 22, halting an eight-game point drought. With just one goal and eight assists in 34 games, he does not provide any fantasy appeal.
Lindgren (lower body) participated in Saturday's optional morning skate, Newsday's Colin Stephenson reports.
Lindgren hurt himself blocking a shot in Thursday's win over the Devils, but the rookie's participation in morning skate bodes well for his chances of suiting up Saturday night in St. Louis. Look for confirmation on Lindgren's status prior to puck drop.
Coach David Quinn classified Lindgren (lower body) as day-to-day following Thursday's win over New Jersey, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.
Quinn said the injury occurred when Lindgren blocked a heavy slapshot from P.K. Subban in the first period, and Lindgren was unable to return to the game. The 21-year-old will have a day off to prepare before the Rangers re-take the ice Saturday against the Blues.
Lindgren (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game against the Devils.
Lindgren left Tuesday's game with an upper-body issue, and now it's unclear how he sustained the lower-body injury Thursday. In the meantime, Brendan Smith has dropped back to defense for the remainder of the game, leaving the team with 11 forwards. Expect an update on Lindgren's health ahead of Saturday's clash with the Blues.
