Report: Rangers Closing In On Deal With SHL Free Agent Michael Lindqvist

Per a report, the New York Rangers and SHL forward Michael Lindqvist are nearing a deal that will bring the 23-year-old to Broadway.

Lindqvist had 20 goals and 14 assists for 34 points in 33 SHL games this year, then had two goals and an assist in two playoff games.

He seems to be a very low-risk, high-reward signing. Per the report linked above, the journalist of the piece called it “more or less a done deal.” (Stick Salute to Patrick for the translation). Here is his Elite Prospects page.

More when it becomes official.
