That's not me trying to relate him to someone of similar nationality, but I really feel the two play a very similar game.
You realize OEL is Swedish too, right? He's also very much a two-way defenseman at this point. More so than Larsson is, at this point.

At any rate, I see more of OEL in Lindholm. They have similar games, with a lot of untapped potential, tremendous poise, smarts, and underrated offensive skills. The big difference is upside, as OEL just continued to get better and better and now he's one of the best young defensemen in the league. Lindholm will need a similar developmental curve if he's going to have that type of ceiling.
