The Bruins have signed Lindholm to a two-year deal with an annual salary cap hit of $850,000.
The Bruins also signed Brett Ritchie to a one-year, $1 million deal, a pair of signings that bolster the team's bottom-six forward corps in the wake of Noel Acciari's departure. Lindholm isn't really on the fantasy radar, however, after logging just one goal and 13 points in 65 games (61 with Toronto and four with Winnipeg) last season. The 27-year-old can play both center and wing, a trait the Bruins like in their depth guys up front and given his production in Sweden prior to last season, the 6-0, 183 pounder probably has a degree of untapped offensive upside.
Lindholm was acquired by the Jets on Monday from Toronto in exchange for Nic Petan, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.
Lindholm has amassed 12 points in his rookie season with the Maple Leafs, but he isn't what you'd call a difference maker in fantasy. The 27-year-old has only taken 60 shots in 61 games and now moves to Winnipeg where he'll be hard-pressed to find consistent minutes. The center/winger has found the scoresheet once in his last 23 games.
Lindholm has just one point in his last 18 games.
Lindholm has the ability to play in many roles, but his upside is limited. On the Leafs, his ice time is limited and so is his value. There's little room in fantasy for a 12-point pivot who goes on long dry spells.
Lindholm's goal drought has reached 39 games.
He came oh-so-close early this week, but his snipe was called off because of an offside. Lindholm's ice time has dropped under 10 minutes a game in eight of his last nine contests. He does have three helpers in his last 12 games (and 11 points in 45 games overall), but that doesn't make Lindholm fantasy worthy.
Lindholm notched two assists in Friday's 6-1 win over the Devils.
He added three shots, two PIM, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating in a strong overall performance. Lindholm hadn't found the scoresheet in five straight games coming into Friday and has only one goal and five points in 16 games, but the 27-year-old rookie scored at a near point-a-game pace in Sweden last year, and better days could be ahead once he fully adjusts to playing in North America.
Lindholm managed an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Winnipeg.
The 27-year-old blueliner is not somebody to consider in fantasy even if he is an effective piece on the ice most nights. Lindholm is still finding his game at the NHL level and therefore expecting him to impact fantasy fortunes is not advisable as of yet.
Lindholm scored his first NHL goal Saturday in a 4-2 win over the Capitals.
He also broke up a fabulous scoring chance for the Caps when he made a diving poke check in the second period. Lindholm will be much better on the ice than in the fantasy arena.
Lindholm garnered an assist in Tuesday's victory over the Stars, registering the first point of his career.
Through the first four games of the year, Lindholm has been averaging just 10:02 of ice time. Given his limited opportunities, it shouldn't come as a surprise the natural center has yet to find the back of the net and has just three shots while playing on the wing.
