Lindstrom already has a great shot, but he has improved his assist game to become a complete offensive player.

He currently has 27 goals and 19 assists for the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL.

With his size, he can help out on a defense too. It looks like he is willing to put in the work to improve his game.

This is a projectible second-line center behind Bedard that the Blackhawks could use. Heck, you could move him to wing and pair him with Bedard and hopefully Oliver Moore for an impactful top line.

Think of him being added like when Marian Hossa was brought to Chicago. That is not to say he will be a future Hall of Famer with his number in the United Center rafters. It is more of just adding a big, fast, and physical skater to a lineup that was undersized at forward.

The Chicago Blackhawks have plenty of options and a lot of homework to do on all the draft prospects. Lindstrom right now looks like the perfect choice if they do not land the No. 1 overall pick.
