Elias Lindholm is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after players at this year's deadline, and now he has been linked to this Eastern Conference team in a new report.

Lindholm Linked to New York Rangers In New Report



The Calgary Flames are becoming this years shopping centre, as they sell away assets in order to build for the future. Elias Lindholm has been rumoured to be on the trade block for the majority of the year, and now with the deadline coming up, teams are coming out of the woodwork to express interest in the centreman.

One of those teams who has recently expressed interest is the New York Rangers. The Rangers are quietly having an incredible year, sitting atop the Metro Division, and are likely looking to gear up for a potential push this offseason.


"We're told that Calgary's pending free-agent center Elias Lindholm is at the top of the Blueshirts' wish list and indeed had been even before Chytil was ruled out for the year." #NYR


Lindholm the Perfect Replacement for Chytil For Remainder of Season



The Rangers are not surprisingly interested in Lindholm's services, as they will need a replacement for the injured Filip Chytil who has appeared in just 10 games this year and was announced to be out for the remainder of the season just a few days ago.



Lindholm and Chytil have similar productions, with Lindholm being just a touch more reliable in terms of depth-scoring ability. Lindholm does have an additional 'it' factor if he can find it again, that allowed him to score 42 goals just a few years ago.

We will see if the Rangers will be able to craft a deal enticing enough for the Calgary Flames to bite before other teams can get their hands on Lindholm.
