Lindholm had one goal and one assist with a minus-4 rating while averaging 11:39 TOI in 10 games with the Hurricanes. He was the fifth overall pick in this year's draft. He is going to the AHL where he will see a lot more ice-time and gain some valuable experience.
Elias Lindholm (upper-body) looks to be on track to return this week, he was at practice today in a normal jersey.

Lindholm has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury. The fifth overall pick in this years draft has one goal and a minus-1 rating while averaging 8:51 TOI.
Lindholm (upper-body) out tomorrow Hurricanes head coach Kirk Muller says.
That likely means that Tuomo Ruutu will make his season debut, but the Hurricanes have said they will make a decision on him tomorrow.
Lindholm left Friday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return.
It's getting close to decision time on whether or not to burn Lindholm’s first year of his entry level deal. Lindholm’s recurring "upper-body" problems could make that decision a little easier on Carolina. Consider his day-to-day.
Lindholm will play tonight.

Lindholm is skating this morning with a no-contact jersey.
Lindholm played just 7:34 with a minus-1 rating yesterday. He went to the locker room briefly because of an arm laceration, but did return. He continued to practice on the first power-play unit this morning so he should be considered probable for tomorrow's game.

Lindholm was selected with the fifth overall pick in this year's draft. Lindholm has some of the best hands available in this year's draft. Keep an eye on Lindholm early in the season, he would be a great pickup (especially in a keeper league) if he sticks with Carolina.
