Lindholm was one of the top players available at the trade deadline and filled a need at left-shot defense for Boston. Shortly after the trade, the 28-year-old defenseman signed an eight-year extension with Boston that carries an average annual cap hit of $6.5 million. The 6’3”, 208 pound Lindholm will provide some size and defensive help to a Bruins team seeking their first Stanley Cup since 2011.

The Helsingborg, Sweden native, will debut against a Lightning team that is just one point ahead of Boston in the Atlantic Division standings. This season, Lindholm registered five goals and 17 assists in 61 games with the Ducks.
