Around the Farm: Lindberg named SEL Playoff MVP as Skelleftea wins title

All awards info courtesy of Alex Nunn.

Oscar Lindberg was named the SEL Playoff MVP following Skelleftea’s 4-0 Game Four victory that gave them the sweep over Lulea HC in the SEL Finals. Our last ATF post was after Game Two, so to update on Lindberg’s performance in Games Three and Four: Lindberg contributed an assist in both games en route to two victories. In 13 playoff games (Skelleftea lost just one game throughout their run), Lindberg put together an impressive 4-8-12 scoring line.

In addition to winning the playoff MVP, Lindberg was also nominated for the Guldpucken Award (League MVP). Lindberg’s contract with Skelleftea expired at the end of the year, and he is now free to join the Rangers and/or Whale.

    I can’t wait to see the kid on ice, from all I’ve read about him, he also is the real Mc Coy!!!!

    How did we steal this guys from the desert dogs is beyond me!!!!! I can’t even remember who we gave to Phoenix in exchange for Oscar, but it may rate up there along with the Gomez trade some day!!!!!

      Rangers traded Ethan Werek in May of 08 for Lindberg. Interestingly enough, Werek was taken with the compensatory pick given to us for Chereponov’s death. He’s got a stat line of 11-14-25 in 65 AHL games with a -6 to boot. Lindberg has a playoff MVP. Another steal by Sather?

    His ceiling is a very good 1st line center. He will give us a great 1-2 punch.
