Why Oscar Lindberg Is Having A Strong Start

Alex Nunn

Through 16 games, Oscar Lindberg is tied for third in the Swedish Elite League with 8 goals and 9 assists.

Three of his goals have come on the power play and two have been game winners.

In speaking with Lindberg, he cited filling out his body more as a reason why he has had such a hot start, “It probably depends on several things, I have improved physically and I have also had a major role on the team. I got a good start this year and it has continued.”

As of yesterday Lindberg led the entire Swedish Elite League in shots with 58 and says that he hasn’t really changed his approach other than trying to get better “if you shoot a lot the chances are bigger that you make goals. My shots are something that I try to improve all the time in practice.”

Lindberg added that he enjoyed being being known as a strong two-way forward who is strong in the faceoff circle, but also understands that he has more to give on offense, “Obviously I want to develop my offensive game further. That’s something I feel I have lost a bit in recent years as I have been playing in a more defensive role. It’s fun to help with the offense.”
