RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Joakim Lindstrom.
Lindstrom never met the expectations he was faced with in Columbus, but a fresh start with the Ducks may be just what is needed to get him on track and producing at the offensive end. Still, he comes to an organization with significantly more depth than the Jackets, which will force him to compete for an Opening Night roster spot, and could push him down to Iowa (AHL) for some minor league seasoning before an injury or ineffectiveness open up an opportunity for him to stick with the Ducks.
Depth winger has shown occasional flashes of offense at the AHL level.
Lindstrom looked solid in his first full North American season, scoring 43 points in 64 AHL games and getting a cup of coffee with the Blue Jackets. He'll get a chance at a regular spot in Columbus during training camp.
