Lindholm Sore After Collision; Guhle Recalled
By Michael Walters
The Anaheim Ducks came out of the trade deadline making the most moves this past Monday. Not far behind them in moves, were the Edmonton Oilers who made several trades of their own. The two teams met on Tuesday in their first post-trade deadline game.
The Ducks came out strong in the contest building a 2-0 lead early in the game. Newcomer Sonny Milano scored the opening goal of the contest. The Oilers responded twice rallying from behind to tie the game and send it into overtime. Milano would strike again, this time on the power play to give Anaheim the win.
Recap: Milano Shines In Debut
Despite earning the win, Anaheim lost Hampus Lindholm during the game. During the second period, he got tangled up and fell awkwardly into the boards. After being down for a short period of time, he went directly to the locker room and was done for the night.
Swedish media outlet SportExpressen spoke to Lindholm shortly after the incident. Hampus said that his back and upper body was sore after the collision, but he said nothing was broken despite the pain. Lindholm did say he had difficulty breathing after the hard hit. He doesn’t remember exactly what led to the collision.
It appears that Lindholm hopefully avoided a major injury from this incident. It is important to note that Lindholm had surgery on the same shoulder a few years ago. Anaheim did recall Brendan Guhle as a result, but it’s unknown exactly how much time Lindholm could miss.
Anaheim is already thin on the blue line with Cam Fowler(lower-body) and Erik Gudbranson(upper-body) both out. Earlier this week, General Manager Bob Murray said they would both be out for about two weeks. Gudbranson is still currently listed on the IR. Guhle along with new acquisitions Christian Djoos and Matt Irwin figure to see plenty of ice time.
