Hampus Lindholm scored at the 5:49 mark of the first and that would become the game winning goal as the Ducks beat the Coyotes 3-0 Saturday night.
This is only Lindholm’s second goal of the year and he is going to need to pick up the pace to reach the marks he set in his first three seasons. Lindholm earned six goals in 2013-14, seven the following season, and 10 last year. Lindholm's first goal of the year was scored in a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks December 9th and it was also a game winner. Jan 15 - 1:17 AM

Hampus Lindholm scored the game-winning goal with just over five minutes remaining in the third period in a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

Lindholm missed the start of the season due to a contract dispute and has really struggled to put up points after missing all of training camp. The former 6th overall pick brings a solid two-way game but only has three points in 15 games this season. His current pace of 0.2 points-per-game would be the lowest of his career. Rickard Rakell and Antoine Vermette also scored for the Ducks.

Hampus Lindholm has been rounding into form since entering the lineup on November 9.

Lindholm was a restricted free agent and didn't ink his six-year deal until October 27. He missed all of training camp so it's no surprise that he wasn't up to snuff when he returned to the lineup. He concentrated on the defensive part of the game but he has the green light to jump into the play according to head coach Randy Carlyle. "You see a rush up the ice and he’s got that ability to skate the puck," Carlyle said. "You see where he can recover a puck and break out against a strong forecheck. You see all those things. And then you see some other things where you wonder why did he do that? So there’s still some question marks." Lindholm has only two assists thus far, both in the same game against LA a week ago.

Hampus Lindholm pitched in two assists during Anaheim's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles on Sunday.

It took Lindholm six games to finally make the scoresheet, but he doubled up with two assists in the third period to give the Ducks a chance in a game they trailed 3-0. Lindholm's career high is 34 points.

Hampus Lindholm will make his season debut on Wednesday.

Lindholm hasn't played yet because he was a contract holdout and then needed to go through the visa process. His first practice with the Ducks came on Tuesday, so he might be rusty at first.

Ducks coach Randy Carlyle hasn't decided if Hampus Lindholm will play on Wednesday.

Lindholm missed the start of the season as a contract holdout and only participated in his first practice on Tuesday. He feels ready to play on Wednesday, but the decision is ultimately Carlyle's. "It’s tough," Carlyle said. "You fly all day yesterday and then get in, and then the excitement of coming to practice for the first time. We didn’t spare him any shifts out there too. The whole idea is we’ve got to get him up to game speed as quickly as possible. The things that we did with him today – pushing and shoving and defending and then shooting – are probably the things that he did the least of in his practice time with the team he was practicing with."

Hampus Lindholm feels ready to play on Wednesday night.

However, he knows it will be up to the coaches. It sounds like Lindholm is close to making his season debut even if he doesn't play against Columbus.

Hampus Lindholm has his work visa and is heading to Columbus to meet up with the Ducks.

Lindholm might participate in Tuesday's practice. He's already missed 13 games so far between his time as a contract holdout and the visa process, so he'll likely need time to get into game shape. With that in mind, it would be surprising if he plays in Wednesday's game in Columbus.

Hampus Lindholm is expected to get his work visa early next week, according to his agent.

If that happens then he should be back in town shortly afterwards. Lindholm agreed to a new contract with the Ducks about a week ago.

Hampus Lindholm may not be available until the Ducks start a three-game road trip on Nov. 9 at Columbus.

He agreed to a six-year contract Thursday to end his holdout, but he still has to get a work visa issue sorted out. Anaheim has missed him and want to get him into active duty as soon as they can.

Now that Hampus Lindholm is signed to a six-year contract, the Swedish defenseman will need to go through the work visa process.

Lindholm is in Sweden and it might take a little bit of time before he's able to start practicing with the Ducks. When he does meet up with the team, he'll likely need to participate in a few practices before he's ready to make his 2016-17 debut given that he missed all of training camp and the start of the season.

Hampus Lindholm has signed a six-year, $31.5 million contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

Lindholm was a restricted free agent. He's already missed training camp and the first eight games of the campaign as his contract negotiations dragged on, so at this point we're concerned about him being behind the curve once he does make his season debut. Those short-term concerns aside though, a $5.25 million annual cap hit for Lindholm looks pretty good. He's just 22 years old, but has already established himself as a huge part of the Ducks' defense. In his first three NHL seasons, he's recorded 92 points and averaged 21:04 minutes per game in 236 contests.

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.
