Oscar Lindberg: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After being ranked by the Central Scouting Bureau seventh among European Skaters, the 6'0, 21-year-old center was selected by Phoenix 57th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The following year, Lindberg's rights were traded to the Rangers. Through 178 games with Skelleftea of the Swedish Hockey League, he has collected 28 goals, 40 assists and 138 penalty minutes. In addition to being awarded the Stefan Liv Memorial Trophy for most valuable player of the 2012-13 SHL playoffs, Lindberg has been named to Sweden's preliminary national team roster -along with Henrik Lundqvist and Carl Hagelin- for the Sochi Olympics. With Derek Stepan holding out and Rangers new head coach giving the Swede a long look in training camp, fantasy owners should monitor Lindberg's progress.
Though his rights are held by the Rangers, Lindberg is currently playing with Skellefteċ AIK of the Swedish Elite League (SEL) and is unlikely to see any time in the NHL in 2012-13.
