Averaged over a whole season? Incredibly rare. In a single game? Not really that rare.

Again, not ripping on Lindholm, I've never seen him play and really have no read on him at all, from scouts and Swedish fans it does sound like he's a great prospect. I'm just saying I wouldn't make that much out of big minutes in a single game.

Surely Brodin and Klefbom had individual games where they played big minutes though, right? That's really the only point I was trying to make.
