Observations:

 

March 2014 - Hampus Lindholm has been having a tremendous rookie season. He currently has a respectable 21 points (five goals, 16 assists) in 59 games with a plus-26, which is good for top ten in the league. He has played most of this season with Francois Beauchemin and has served as a strong top pairing partner for the veteran. He has been strong defensively and plays a very smart game. With the guidance of Scott Niedermayer, they are looking for Lindholm to be their next defensive stud. Kevin Won

 

March 2013 – Playing in Norfolk, he has had a quietly decent season. He is not posting many points, but has been reliable and involved in games. He was set back for a couple months by a concussion in a WJC pre-tournament game. But he has come back and been better than the first half of the season. In his last 12 AHL games he has posted 32 shots, goals and assist have not come as a result, but he is creating opportunities. More talented teammates may equate to more production for him in the future. Jason Banks

 

August 2012 – Lindholm has recently signed a three year entry level contract. It is expected that he will stay in Sweden for at least another season with Rogle. Anaheim has no need to rush Lindholm to North America, he will grow much more playing against men his size in the Swedish Elite League and will take notes from former NHLers, Lasse Kukkonen, Martin Strbak, Tom Pressing, Martin Gerber and Mathias Tjarnqvist. Jason Banks


June 2012 – Hampus Lindholm becomes the surprise draft day riser after the Anaheim Ducks select him 6th overall. He projects as an excellent mobile two-way defenseman capable of logging big minutes in all situations. He owns a strong first pass and plays with the poise of a seasoned veteran. Kevin Won

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

 

Lindholm possesses good upside but he will be known for his reliability. He should earn good minutes in all situations.
