Elias Lindholm had an assist in Carolina's 3-2 win over New Jersey on Sunday.

Elias Lindholm will see time as a center in the final weeks of the season.

"When he goes in the middle it’s not going to be for one or two periods or one or two games," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. "It’s going to be an extended look. He was drafted as a center, hasn’t played a lot of center in the NHL. But we’re going to know at the end of this year of he can do it or not." If the experiment goes well then Lindholm might spend the bulk of the 2015-16 campaign playing up the middle. The Hurricanes traded Eric Staal to the Rangers, so there is a potential long-term opening there.

Elias Lindholm assisted on three goals Saturday including Victor Rask's overtime winner.

Lindholm got off to a horrible start with only two goals in his first 20 games but he has been a stud ever since with two goals and 11 points in his last 10 contests. He was drafted fifth overall in 2013 so it's obvious that the pedigree is there. He should be a consideration in all formats of fantasy hockey, especially dynasty leagues.

Elias Lindholm scored on the power play Friday.

It was Lindholm's fourth goal of the season and second with the man-advantage. Lindholm has 10 points this season in 29 games but was off to a horrible start with only two goals in his first 20 games. He has two goals and all six assists in his last 10 games so we recommend the fifth overall pick in the 2013 Draft very highly at this time as he has a bright future in the NHL.
