Bruins may be in trouble if this player can't preform

While Erik Karlsson shines, Hampus Lindholm emerged as a significant defensive force last season, boasting the best two-way performance in the NHL. Lindholm not only provided valuable defensive support but also contributed offensively.

He enters the upcoming season as one of the league's top defensemen, ranking 12th.

With the Bruins losing Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, Lindholm faces the task of maintaining or even improving upon last year's performance. In the 2022-23 season, he achieved personal bests in assists (43) and points (53), ranking 16th among defensemen.

Lindholm also led the NHL with a remarkable +49 in plus-minus, another career high. His impact extended to the power-play, where he collected 17 points, including 16 assists.

Lindholm is known for logging extensive ice time, averaging 23:11 per game, solidifying his crucial role on the Bruins' roster.

Similar to Charlie McAvoy, Lindholm's goal-scoring ability could benefit from a boost. While he has shown he can find the back of the net, 13 goals might not be enough for the upcoming season.
