4. The Development Continues
Where did Oscar Lindberg come from?
13 games deep, and we feel pretty confident that Lindberg is the guy.
The Swedish-born, 24-year old center leads all NHL rookies with seven goals. He’s also collected three assists and put up an incredible +9 rating.
It doesn’t matter who Alain Vigneault throws on the third line with him. Whoever it is, that line remains the most consistent trio in the entire lineup.
How about this ridiculous shot from the kid in last night’s 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche? Talk about a pure, wicked shot which shows the talent oozing out of his 6-0, 187 lbs. frame.
For the Rangers, the development continues and remains the single most important aspect to this club finding success late in the season and beyond.
