The combination of size, mobility and reflexes is quite rare. And not only that, but good stickhandling and the fact he always tries to keep the play going on rather than have a defensive zone face-off is remarkable (not sure if that's correct English, but I'm sure you get the idea).

Lindbäck now has 3 shutouts while the league leaders have 4 (with more than twice the number of games played). SV% is .930 (3rd in the league) and GAA 2.33 (9th) and all this with the team that still is the last in the league. If he can play anything like this in the NHL, goalkeeping will be the least of your worries.
Gets me excited to see him play in... The... Nh... Crap...
