Centre Fredrick Lindquist played eight games for the Edmonton Oilers in 1998-99. He was an excellent passer and face off specialist who was well known in his native Sweden.
The Stockholm native began his career in the second division with the Huddinge and Nacka clubs. After scoring six goals in his first year with mighty Djurgardens IF in 1990-91, he was taken 55th overall by the New Jersey Devils at the Entry Draft. That year he also contributed to a Swedish championship on Djurgardens.
In June 1998, Lindquist was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in a deal that involved several draft picks. He averaged 12 minutes in eight games for the club in 1998-99 but failed to register a point. The talented pivot adjusted well in the AHL where he registered 54 points in 57 games for the Hamilton Bulldogs. The next year he returned to Europe and played for HC Davos of Switzerland. Lindquist returned to Sweden in 2000-01 and notched 22 points for Malmo IF.
