The Process Continues

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The next few strokes of that process begin Sunday when the NHL Scouting Combine takes place in Buffalo, and lasts until June 2.

Holland, assistant general manager Ryan Martin, director of amateur scouting Tyler Wright, and several other executives from the Red Wings front office will spend time in Buffalo sifting through over 100 draft-eligible players.

“It’s an opportunity for us to get to know them, ask questions, find out a bit about who they are,” Holland said. “You have all the top players in one (city). I like to say it’s sort of like painting a picture.

“This is another chance to gather information and learn a little more about them.”

In other news,

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today agreed to terms with defenseman Gustav Lindstrom on a three-year entry-level contract.

Lindstrom, 19, skated in 39 games during his second season at the professional level for Almtuna IS in second-tier Sweden and recorded 14 points (6-8-14) and 34 penalty minutes during the 2017-18 campaign. His six goals on the season tied a team-high among defensemen. Originally drafted by the Red Wings in the second round (38th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Lindstrom has spent four seasons in Almtuna’s system, totaling 23 points (8-15-23) and 60 penalty minutes in 87 games at the pro level and 20 points (9-11-20), a plus-10 rating and 16 penalty minutes in 14 games at the under-20 level. The 6-foot-2, 187-pound blueliner also recorded 51 points (20-31-51), a plus-15 rating and 68 penalty minutes in 59 games on the under-18 circuit. Lindstrom will skate for Frolunda HC of the Swedish Hockey League for the 2018-19 season.

A native of Ostervala, Sweden, Lindstrom represented his country in the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship in Buffalo, N.Y., recording one assist in seven games to help Sweden to the silver medal. Lindstrom also represented Sweden at the 2017 IIHF Five Nations Tournament and led the team’s defensemen with seven points (1-6-7) in four games. Lindstrom is the nephew of former NHL defenseman Marcus Ragnarsson, who skated in 632 games for San Jose and Philadelphia between 1995-04.

RE: Lindstrom, so they signed a guy that will likely stay in Europe next year?  I don’t understand signing guys and then not bringing them over…

Lindstrom is the nephew of former NHL defenseman Marcus Ragnarsson, who skated in 632 games for San Jose and Philadelphia between 1995-04.

I did not know this.
