Scouting Report

Strengths: Is positionally sound and finds a
way to see most pucks coming his way. Quick reflexes and good agility help
him make the big saves. Great glove hand.
Weaknesses: Seems content to stay in Sweden.
The Habs are stacked with prospect goalies and Heino-Lindberg hasn’t
out-played them up to this point.
Projected Role: Has the potential to become a back-up in the NHL, but don’t count on it.
Will likely seek success in Sweden and internationally instead.


Christopher Heino-Lindberg had a strong start to his career, but his stock
has since fallen. He will need to sign with he Canadiens by next season and
come to North America to play or he will no longer be property of the team.
This young goaltender hasn’t seen much actions the past couple of season,
appearing in only 17 games since the 2004-2005 season.
