In 5 games at the World Championships, Oscar Lindberg had 2 assists, a plus 6 rating and 18:10 per game while helping Sweden win the Gold Medal.
Lindberg spent most of the tournament on a line with Washington's Nicklas Backstrom and Toronto's William Nylander.
Sweden's coach Rikard Gronborg said that despite Lindberg playing more of a defensive role with the Rangers, they view him as an offensive player who fit in well with Backstrom and Nylander. (HockeySverige)
Gronberg added that Lindberg is someone who can recover pucks and play with a physical bent as well. (HockeySverige)
Henrik Lundqvist said that Lindberg may not get a lot of credit for his game but praised his "speed," "finesse" and play with the Rangers this season. (HockeySverige)
Nicklas Backstrom said that Lindberg is an "incredibly good player" and someone who is tough to play against in the NHL and fun to play with in the World Championships. (HockeySverige)
Lindberg said that he doesn't mind going under the radar but said that it's nice to hear the praise from his teammates. (HockeySverige)
Larry Brooks wrote over the weekend that Lindberg has been underutilized in his time in the NHL and that it would be a "shame" if the Rangers lost him to Vegas in the expansion draft for nothing. (NY Post)
