The Bruins have placed Par Lindholm (upper-body) on IR.
Lindholm has been sidelined since October 27th and his movement to IR opens up a roster spot for Zach Senyshyn to come up from the AHL. Lindholm is eligible to be activated whenever he is back to 100 percent.
Lindholm will be back in the Bruins lineup on Thursday.
Lindholm has been a healthy scratch for the last four games but will replace David Krejci (upper-body) in the lineup on Thursday. Lindholm will centre the third line with Danton Heinen and Karson Kuhlman on his wings.
The Bruins have signed Par Lindholm to a two-year deal worth $1.7M ($850K AAV).
The Jets have acquired Par Lindholm from the Maple Leafs for Nic Petan.
Lindholm was a quality free agent pickup out of Sweden, playing exclusively on Toronto’s fourth-line and ranked fourth among Maple Leafs forwards in PK-TOI/gm (1:39). Lindholm has just one goal and 11 assists in 61 games this season and will have to battle with a number of forwards for playing time in Winnipeg.
