Quick Hits: The Next Defensemen Edition

In Red Wings Land

By the Numbers Prospects: Gustav Lindstrom | DetroitRedWings.com

Lindstrom wanted to increase the level of difficulty in order to maximize his development after playing the previous two seasons for Allsvenskan’s Almtuna IS in the second highest league in Sweden.

The young Swede earned a spot in the team’s top defense pair and was averaging 18:46 in ice time.

Lindstrom also wanted to have a chance to win and he succeeded on both fronts as he played regularly when he was healthy and Frolunda won both the Champions Hockey League and the LeMat Trophy, which goes to the playoff winner.

I’d like to think that Gustav Lindstrom is going to be seeing solid minutes down in Grand Rapids this upcoming season. It will be fun to see him succeed. Everyone will probably incorrectly spell his name without the ‘n’ for his entire career.
