Elias Lindholm is eager to see improvements in the Hurricanes during his second year in the NHL.
"When we're playing good we're a really good team," Lindholm said. "We just need to play hard all (season) long. We didn't do it last year. We didn't get to the playoffs. Hopefully this year." It was a long off-season for Lindholm after he spent some time in Greece, he was back home to Sweden for three months. He had nine goals and 21 points in 58 games last campaign. The 19-year-old should be more comfortable in the NHL this year and his numbers will improve as a result. Sep 8 - 9:42 AM

Mar 12 - 9:20 AM

Elias Lindholm has been playing on a line with Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner lately.

The fact that the Hurricanes would use Lindholm so prominently when their season is on the line says a lot about their faith in the 19-year-old rookie. He hasn't done much from an offensive perspective with 14 points in 41 games this season, but he has a lot of upside and is worth gambling on late in fantasy drafts for the 2014-15 campaign.
Mar 11 - 9:04 AM

Mar 5 - 4:55 AM

Elias Lindholm has found a home on the second line in Carolina.

The fifth overall pick in the June draft has struggled at times this season but has found it easier to keep up with the pace of the NHL game since returning from the World Junior Tournament. He has only one assist and a minus-four rating in his last 10 games but that will change now that he is a top-six forward. Lindholm has a bright future and do not forget about him next season.
Feb 3 - 6:40 AM

Elias Lindholm registered an assist in Carolina's 3-2 win on Monday.

Lindholm ended a seven-game point drought. He should eventually develop into a great top-six forward, but it might be a couple more seasons before he has any fantasy value in standard leagues. He has four goals and 11 points in 30 contests in 2013-14.
Jan 28 - 9:23 AM

Elias Lindholm centered high-scoring Jeff Skinner and Tuomo Ruutu in the Carolina Hurricanes' practice in preparation for the team's game against the Florida Panthers today.

Lindholm, who returned last week from the World Junior Championship in his native Sweden, has played both center and wing this season but it a natural centerman. "We need to see where Lindy is at. It's an important position on a hockey team," coach Kirk Muller said. "He has chemistry with (Skinner). A guy who is as hot as Jeff is, you want to make sure you surround him with the right people. We'll try that trio."
Jan 18 - 9:26 AM

Elias Lindholm had a goal and two assists in Carolina's 6-1 win over Toronto on Thursday.

It was Lindholm's first NHL game in nearly a month because he temporarily left the team to participate in the 2014 World Junior Championship. Lindholm didn't do much in the first half of 2013-14, but he's a tremendous talent and worth keeping an eye on.
Jan 10 - 9:22 AM

It's unclear if Elias Lindholm will play Thursday night.

It's my first game in about two and a half weeks." He skated on the top line with Jacob de la Rose and Filip Forsberg.
