This is a fair point. Likewise Linus was drafted for his two way play. He was never envisioned as a sniper, he will live and die by his ability to be responsible with the puck in his own zone, something that stat lines at the end of the game don't necessarily show.

Its been a month. So i figured I would do another update.

Linus has returned from his loan and is back in the SHL playing with Skelleftea

On Saturday he had a goal, his second of the season ( in the SHL). He now sits at 33 games played 2 goals and 3 assists.

EDIT: Skelleftea is not having a great year, but they currently sit in a playoff spot, and should make it in.

The SHL's regular season just finished.

Linus Lindström's team Skelleftea found themselves in a position where they would have to win if they wanted a bye to the quarter finals. Fortunately they were able to do so, and they finished the season ranked 5th.

Linus already has 16 SHL playoff games under his belt and he will get a chance to gain more experience in that regard.

In to date the 21 year olds has played 139 games in the SHL.


Lindström ended the regular season with a stat line that reads

SHL
44 GP 3 G 3 A 6 Pts

Allsvenskan
5 GP 0 G 2 A 2 Pts


His stat line last year was

50 GP 2 G 4 A 6 Pts

Just like that Lindstrom's season is over. Skelleftea lost their series 4-2.
During that period Lindstrom was held pointless, so his season totals remain the same.

I never know how to feel reading prospect stats in the SHL. A guy can have three points in 25 games and then you find out Erik Karlsson only had two when he played in that league at that age. And I sit here like 'does he suck or is he Erik Karlsson?'

He's never Erik Karlsson, though.

I don't think that the point totals by themselves are disappointing. What is disappointing is the apparent lack of development from last year to this year. 21 is not old, but in today's NHL it is not terribly young either.

I also think he is more a Defensive minded Forward. I think his upside is basically Marcus Kruger.
