|Organizational Comments: Wings Dir of Player Development Shawn Horcoff "He's got a great first pass and good poise with the puck,. If he makes a mistake, it doesn't shred his game - he thrives and still plays the same game. And he's physical - he likes to hit." |
|What GRC says: Fall 2019 Ranked as the 25th best European sakter in his draft class, Lindstrom has continued to develop his game in the SEL becoming a go-to defender. While he will play a physical game, he is steady but not flashy and won't overwhelm anyone. However he plays a head's-up poised game and does not make many mistakes. Once he adjusts to the smaller ice surface, expect him to become a coaches favorite for his safe play.
