Observations:

December 2016 - Ryan Lindgren has been shortlisted for a position on the US Junior team this Christmas. Lindgren, who was drafted in the second round by the Bruins this year, has experience with the US National Team previously. Lindgren has been feisty this season with the University of Minnesota, collecting 47 penalty minutes in only 14 games. Mike Drover

 

June 2016 – Boston’s second round pick in the 2016 draft was drafted exactly where Central Scouting projected he would be. As the 49th pick in the draft, Lindgren joins the Bruins’ franchise as the second defenseman drafted by Boston in as many rounds. Lindgren is widely considered a well-rounded defenseman with a defense-first mentality. Lindgren has spent the past two seasons with the U.S. Development Program where he was captain of the U.S. national under-18 team. Lindgren posted 19 points in 55 games in his first season, and 25 points in 61 games in his most recent year. Lindgren has good size and strength for his age, possesses strong leadership qualities, and has a high hockey IQ.

Lindgren’s style of play makes him a valuable contributor on the ice, but perhaps less so for your fantasy squad. Lindgren is expected to play for the University of Minnesota in 2016 and will be a few years away from the Boston Bruin lineup. Michael Drover

Fantasy Outlook: C

A strong defenseman with a stay-at-home mentality. Good skater, relentless with puck battles, but not likely to light up the scoreboard.
