Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Oscar Lindberg
Oscar Lindberg was born on October 29, 1991 in Skelleftea, Sweden. The product of Skelleftea AIK of the Swedish Elite League was drafted in the second round, 57th overall, in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes.

While still playing in Sweden, Lindberg’s rights were traded to the New York Rangers for Ethan Werek. After playing five seasons in Sweden, Lindberg made the jump to North America where the Rangers assigned him to their AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, for the 2013-14 season.

Lindberg played most of two seasons in Hartford before the Rangers called him up midway through the 2014-15 season. On February 24, 2015, Lindberg made his NHL debut in a 1-0 win over the Calgary Flames.

During the 2015-16 season, Lindberg would set new career-highs in goals, assists and points. He found the back of the net 13 times and added 15 assists for 28 points.

The Rangers chose to leave Lindberg unprotected in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft and he was subsequently selected by the Vegas Golden Knights. He would suit up in 63 games for the Knights during their inaugural season, scoring nine times to go along with a pair of assists.

At the 2019 NHL trade deadline Lindberg was part of a package of players and draft picks sent to the Ottawa Senators that saw the Golden Knights acquire Mark Stone.

On the international stage, Lindberg helped Sweden the gold medal at the 2013 and 2017 World Championships.
