Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "It became apparent quite early in his junior season that he was ready to graduate to the Allsvenskan as he scored six goals in his first six games. He caught the attention of scouts at the Under-19 tournament in Switzerland in February as he led all defencemen in scoring and showed off his puck skills. A draft riser." (Recrutes.ca)

• "Lindstrom has very good skating skills, including a long powerful stride. He looks calm and composed on the ice, and does not tend to play over aggressive in either end of the ice. His edge work is very good and it gives him the ability to transition and cross-over quickly. He keeps his feet moving with the puck, and this buys him an extra second or two with the puck in the transition game. We would like to see him use these skating skills to make a greater impact at both ends of the ice, as it is rare to see him fully exert himself." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
