The Anaheim Ducks Steal Montreal Canadiens Defenceman Off Waivers

Published January 10, 2024 at 4:00 PM

On Wednesday, the Anaheim Ducks bolstered their defensive lineup by claiming defenseman Gustav Lindstrom off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens.

This move followed Lindstrom's placement on waivers by the Canadiens on Tuesday, opening the door for the Ducks to acquire the 25-year-old blue liner.

Lindstrom's contribution with the Canadiens this season includes 14 games, during which he netted three goals and secured one assist. Additionally, he participated in four AHL contests with the Laval Rocket, though he didn't register any points.

This season marked Lindstrom's debut with the Canadiens after spending the first four years of his career with the Detroit Red Wings, who selected him in the second round of the 2017 draft. In his previous season, he showcased his defensive skills, accumulating eight points in 36 games with Detroit.

Over his career, Lindstrom has notched five goals and 29 points in 142 games, providing the Ducks with an experienced presence on the blue line.

This acquisition aligns with the Ducks recent strategic moves, including the trade of Jamie Drysdale and a draft pick to the Philadelphia Flyers for forward Cutter Gauthier, demonstrating the team's commitment to shaping a competitive roster.
