Lindstein shows a lot of initiative every time he hops onto the ice. He makes transporting the puck look easy with a great flow in his feet and huge composure with the puck. He also makes decisive passes that open up the ice for his teammates. As an offensive defenseman, he has a lot of confidence with the puck and at the offensive blue line. He looks for openings all the time, especially on the power play. He is active and tries to be a playable option for teammates all the time. His defense is also good, especially in the offensive zone where he often takes a few quick steps forward to put pressure on the puck-carrier and also in the neutral zone where he always moves and puts himself in the right spot and he has a good gap control. Lindstein is not bad at all in his own zone either, but there are still some areas for improvement. I would like to see him play more physical and tough along the boards and in front of the net. Overall, he can be a little too creative when he gets his hands on the puck, and that is something he needs to work on. I would also like to see him shoot more at the blue line instead of making one last pass. This was my second viewing of Lindstein and he continues to impress. I believe he will be a great offensive defender at NHL level some day in the next few years if he gets more consistent in his own zone and adds a little more confidence to take more shots at the blue line. At the moment, I would pick Lindstein inside the first round of the 2023 draft, around 20-25 overall.
