Hopefully Lindholm isn't the next Lindren..

1994-95 Färjestad Elitserien 37 17 15 32

Born in Skelleftea, Sweden, Mats Lindgen starred on his hometown club for three years before joining Farjestads BK. He was chosen in the first round, 15th overall, by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. He came to North America in 1995-96 and suited up briefly for the AHL's Cape Breton Oilers.
The young forward scored 25 points as a rookie in 1996-97 as a member of the Edmonton Oilers. The next year, he scored 13 goals and saw action on both specialty teams. Lindgren was also picked to represent his country at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.
