anyways as all reports indicated Lindholm was without a doubt one of the best players at our prospect camp. coaches and staff members raved about his play and have asked him to come challenge for a spot this year during training camp. would not be surprised to see him play in the NHL according to the reports. If not i can see them letting him get his feet wet for 9 games then sending him back to sweeden similar to Zibanejad for Ottawa last year.
Pretty interesting since I gave it a 5% chance of him coming over this year. Anyone know if he has an NHL clause in his contract in Sweden?
Every Swedish contract has an NHL out-clause.
It's so early because the signing deadline for European players playing in Europe is July 15th.
They had to sign him if they wanted him to be attend training camp and have a shot at making the team, so they did.

No, it's likely NHL or Sweden.
He has a year on his contract with Rögle and will either fulfill that remaining year or play in the NHL.
