Oscar Lindberg scored his 10th goal of the season on Thursday and is the first Ranger rookie to have 10 goals in the first 27 games of the season since Petr Prucha in 2005-06. (via the Rangers Game Notes)
Lindberg has three goals int he past five games and has 8 shots on goal in the past two games.
On the season, Lindberg is second on the team in goals (10), tied for third in points (17) and 18th in ice time per game at 12:34.
Joe Micheletti said on Thursday that Lindberg is an "all-around player" whose minutes are going to have to increase if he keeps playing this well. (MSG)
Lindberg said in late November that he had to get more involved again in the games and play hard. He said that he doesn't want to think about offense but instead the "simple stuff" and letting his game come from there. (Daily News)
He has had at least two hits in every game but two in the month of November.
Adam Rotter: Lindberg is solid and puts himself in the right position to score goals. As a rookie it's expected he will have some ups and downs but he has been pretty consistent in his overall game this season. With other players struggling and him playing well, it wouldn't be a surprise if Lindberg gets moved up to play a bit more of an offensive role while Derek Stepan is out.
