Google-translated Gordie Clark on Lindberg
The 21-year old is red hot and now he is also hailed by the New York Rangers - the club that owns the rights to him.
To SPORT-Expressen, Gordie Clark , the NHL club player director, says the club is ready to bring Lindberg over directly after finals.
And the offensive development this winter is something the Rangers thought barely possible.
- He has a big year now and is a big hope for us too. Last summer at our camp, he was the best player, I promise you. God, we love him as a two-way player. And now he has begun to do offensive things that we hardly believed that he had in himself, says Clark.
- I saw him in the WJC and there he was better than many other Swedish top names. When we saw that we had the chance to draft him we took it immediately.
Lindberg smiles at the words.
- I have received an offensive boost this year. But in the juniors, I was just offensive. Then I got a different role in the SEL-team and had to play more on the fourth line and learn defense.
- It's always nice to hear good words about yourself.
Clarke says that they are ready to pick on you in the spring. Hungry?
- I let all that remain now. Obviously it would be fun to test whether there is a possibility, but as I said, I let it lie for a while now. Those are things you have to take later.
Rangers didn't draft him though, guess he meant trade.
