As Anaheim prepares for its fourth game of the season on Tuesday, Hampus Lindholm remains unsigned.
Lindholm is still a restricted free agent after recording 28 points and averaging 22:00 minutes of ice time per game in 2015-16. Obviously having the 22-year-old defensemen sitting out is a far from ideal scenario, but a huge part of the issue is Anaheim's cap situation as they have a bit over $300K in cap space. Anaheim waived Mason Raymond on Monday, so if he's claimed or demoted then the Ducks would free up an additional $675K, but that still probably wouldn't be nearly enough to re-sign Lindholm.

Ducks GM Bob Murray "hopes" to get a deal done with Hampus Lindholm sooner rather than later.

Problem is that Anaheim has just over $300K in cap space to work with, and one suspects that Lindholm will come in just above that. Murray wouldn't tip his hand on how he'll get fitted back onto the roster by noting, "a lot of things can happen." We'll keep you posted as things develop, and expect at least one trade or a couple of demotions to occur in conjunction.

It seems Hampus Lindholm will miss at least Anaheim's opener due to his lack of a contract.

Lindholm remains a restricted free agent. The Ducks and Lindholm's camp have talked, but haven't made progress, according to agent Claude Lemieux. This situation could change in a hurry though.

With just a week remaining before the Ducks' season opener, Hampus Lindholm remains unsigned.

At this point Lindholm has missed almost all of the Ducks' training camp, so while he might still sign before the start of the campaign, he be behind the curve. It does help that Lindholm was with Team Sweden for the World Cup, but he was a healthy scratch throughout the tournament and only played in one pre-tournament warmup contest on Sept. 10, so it would have been ideal for him to get some preseason work under his belt. As it is though, Anaheim only has one exhibition contest left on its schedule.
Oct 6 - 8:50 AM

The Anaheim Ducks will continue contract talks with restricted free agent Hampus Lindholm.

Lindholm will not attend training camp until a new deal is signed. It's been reported that the Swedish defenseman is looking for an eight-year contract in excess of $48 million. There is no way he will be getting that much and it may take a bridge deal for a year or two to get both sides on board. Stay tuned.

Hampus Lindholm won't attend Ducks training camp until he signs a new contract.

Lindholm is reportedly looking for an eight-year deal worth more than $48 million dollars. The 22-year-old had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games last season. "Our plan is to report to the team once we have a contract signed," agent Claude Lemieux said. "Until then Hampus is training in Sweden." This isn't shocking news, but it would be surprising to see the Ducks start the regular season without Lindholm on their blue line.

Hampus Lindholm is reportedly looking for a deal in excess of $48 million over eight years.

There might be a significant gap between Lindholm and the Ducks as Anaheim is believed to be seeking an annual cap hit in the $5 million to $5.4 million ranger, which is where Morgan Rielly and Seth Jones are respectively. Lindholm had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 contests last season. He's a restricted free agent.

Hampus Lindholm and Jhonas Enroth will be scratched from Sunday's semi-final match against Team Europe.

Nether Lindholm nor Enroth have dressed in the tournament proper thus far, with Lindholm briefly appearing in a pre-lim game two weeks ago now. A tough way to begin one's season, unless Sweden goes on to win gold, that is.

Hampus Lindholm has been added to Team Sweden's World Cup roster.

He'll take injured Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall's spot on the team. Lindholm still doesn't have a new contract from the Anaheim Ducks, but that won't stop him from playing for his country. The 22-year-old had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games with Anaheim last season.
Aug 24 - 11:13 AM

Hampus Lindholm is likely to get a contract worth at least $5 million per year.

That has been the going rate for young defenders in his position this summer. Lindholm is still unsigned and there haven't been updates on the status of the negotiations. However, he is a key defender on the Ducks, so something should be worked out before the start of the regular season.
Jul 30 - 10:07 AM

If the Anaheim Ducks are unable to reach a long-term agreement with Hampus Lindholm, look for a bridge contract.

The Ducks would love to sign the 22-year-old to a five-year (or longer) contract that would take him past a year of free agency. But if both sides cannot agree, then the Ducks would like the defenseman under contract for a couple of seasons and then bargain for a long-term deal. Lindholm is considered a top-two defenseman in the future and he managed 10 goals and 28 points in the regular season. Look for the talented blueliner to hit the 35 point mark in 2016-17 and draft him accordingly.

Hampus Lindholm had an assist in a 2-1 loss to Nashville in Game 7 Wednesday night.

Lindholm had no goals and three assists in Anaheim's seven-game playoff run. During the regular season he recorded 10 goals and 28 points in 80 contests.
Apr 28 - 10:36 AM

Hampus Lindholm had a team-high four hits in the Ducks' 3-1 loss to Nashville Monday night.

The Predators still outhit Anaheim 30-25 despite Lindholm's efforts. Lindholm now has 11 hits in six playoff contests. He also has two assists and a plus-six rating over that span.
Apr 26 - 4:37 AM

Hampus Lindholm picked up his first point of the playoffs during Friday's Game 1 loss to Nashville.

Lindholm didn't make much of an impact on the stat sheet, but he did manage to raise his career playoff totals a bit. He's now up to 12 assists and 14 points in 29 games, mighty excellent for the young defender.
Apr 16 - 2:14 AM

Hampus Lindholm will return to the Anaheim lineup Sunday after missing one game with the flu.

The defenseman has had a good second half and now has 10 goals and 28 points. He is only 22 and this is his third NHL season so expect Lindholm to take his offensive game to the next level in the next year or two. He is worth owning in deeper pools.
