Gophers, Ryan Lindgren ready to sign with Rangers by Friday

Lindgren (St. Cloud Times

Ryan Lindgren was acquired from Boston in the Rick Nash trade. Per reports from Michael Russo out of Minnesota, he will be signing by Friday.

 

The Rangers continue to stock up on defense prospects, which is a great luxury to have as an organization. Defensemen are always in demand and command higher prices in trades, as opposed to forwards.

Per Dobber Prospects:

Lindgren is having a solid sophomore season in the NCAA with the Golden Gophers and was a key member of the USA World Junior Team. Lindgren is a big, physical, defensive defenseman that can dish out big hits and is a strong skater. He has good NHL upside, but limited offensive potential – Peter Harling

Lindgren is listed at 6′, 203 lbs, and shoots left. He was taken in the 2nd round (49th overall) in the 2016 draft.
