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.
Lindgren (upper body) will play Thursday against New Jersey, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Lindgren missed the final two periods of Tuesday's win over Colorado after fighting Nazem Kadri, but he's evidently ready to rock after having his wounds stitched up. The 21-year-old American has been a nice bottom-pairing option for the Rangers this season, notching eight points while posting a plus-4 rating in 32 games, but that's not enough production for him to be considered a viable option in standard fantasy formats.
Lindgren wasn't issued supplemental discipline for his hit on Colorado's Joonas Donskoi during Tuesday's win.
Lindgren had a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday, and it was determined that he "took a proper angle of approach, did not extend outward or upward and hit through Donskoi's core" and the head contact was "unavoidable." Following the hit, Colorado's Nazem Kadri dropped the gloves with Lindgren, and the latter didn't return after the bout due to an upper-body injury. It's unclear if he'll be able to play Thursday versus the Devils.
Lindgren (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game against the Avalanche.
Lindgren had to answer the bell from Colorado's Nazem Kadri in the first period after he dished a high hit on Joonas Donskoi. Lindgren came up bleeding from his face after the fight with Kadri, which is likely the reason for his absence. Expect the team to comment on his status ahead of Thursday's game against New Jersey.
Lindgren's point drought reached six games in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Vancouver.
Lindgren has gone six games without a point and 26 without a goal. The rookie plays well in his own zone, which is a much-needed skill on the leaky Rangers blue line, but his ice time has been in decline of late. He skated only 14:10 Saturday and is averaging just 12:06 of ice time over the past three games after skating 16:41 or more in each of the five games preceding this stretch.
Lindgren saw his modest two-game point streak come to an end in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Capitals, finishing with one shot, one block and two hits.
Lindgren has been a great addition for the Rangers since being called up from AHL Hartford, posting a goal and three assists in nine games to go with a plus-3 rating. He also hit the post in this game, missing his second NHL goal by a hair. The physical 21-year-old has likely earned a spot on the NHL roster for the remainder of the season.
Lindgren was recalled from AHL Hartford on Monday.
Lindgren appeared in five games with the Rangers last season but is still looking for his first career NHL point. It's unclear if the 21-year-old rookie will crack the lineup for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay or if he's simply an extra body for right now.
Lindgren was reassigned to the minors Monday.
Lindgren was almost certainly going to start the year with AHL Hartford, especially considering the emergence of Adam Fox on the blue line. The 21-year-old Lindgren saw action in five games for the Rangers last year and figures to see a similar workload in 2019-20.
The Rangers reassigned Lindgren to AHL Hartford on Sunday.
Lindgren suited up for the final two games of the season, posting zero points and a minus-5 rating. The 21-year-old will play in the final four games with AHL Hartford, and he'll likely return to the minor-league squad to begin next season.
Lindgren was called up from AHL Hartford on Thursday.
Lindgren will get another opportunity with the big club, having already suited up in three games earlier in the year, and recording no points. His first possible chance to suit up is Friday against Columbus, and with the playoffs out of reach, he'll likely see game action in that one.
Lindgren was sent back to AHL Hartford following Saturday's win over Boston, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.
Lindgren is getting sent down to get more game action in with the big club off until Jan. 29. Since the team said it wasn't a demotion, look for Lindgren to be called back up before that Jan. 29 meeting with the Flyers.
Lindgren made his NHL debut in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Carolina.
The 2014 second-round selection (2014) finished the contest with 15:22 worth of ice time. He took a minor penalty for slashing and fired one shot on goal. Lindgren is extremely limited offensively, but he should provide value in deeper leagues that value both hits and blocks as he had three of each Tuesday. Lindgren, who will turn 21 years old next month, could easily find himself with a full-time role for the rebuilding Rangers for the remainder of the season.
Lindgren was recalled from AHL Hartford on Monday.
The 20-year-old defenseman was acquired in the Rick Nash trade from several years back, and Lindgren figures to see his first NHL action in the very near future, possibly as early as Tuesday versus Carolina. He has appeared in 35 games with AHL Hartford this season and has five assists and a plus-7 rating. Lindgren's promotion likely means Fredrik Claesson (shoulder) will be out of action for an extended period.
Lindgren picked up just his second point of the season in AHL Hartford's 4-3 loss to Rochester on Sunday.
Lindgren now has no goals and two assists in 16 games for the Wolf Pack. While the University of Minnesota product isn't known for his offensive production, Lindgren did manage to chip in four points in 10 AHL games at the end of last season. Acquired from Boston in the Rick Nash deal in February, Lindgren is going to make his living as a depth defender who can help on the penalty kill. It's possible he sees time with the Rangers later this season.
Lindgren signed an entry-level contract with the Rangers on Thursday.
Lindgren -- who was part of the trade that saw Rick Nash shipped off to Boston -- will join the Rangers organization after two seasons with the University of Minnesota. It's possible the departure of Don Lucia as head coach of the Golden Gophers factored heavily in Lindgren's decision to join the professional ranks. While New York could take a look at the blueliner right away, more likely he will head to AHL Hartford before his contract kicks in next season.
