Lindholm (upper body) won’t face Lightning on Saturday

An upper-body injury will keep Hampus Lindholm out of Anaheim’s lineup when they take on the Lightning on Saturday night.

The 21-year-old was hurt in the first period of Thursday’s game against the Panthers.

Lindholm didn’t take a shift for the rest of the period, but did come back for the second and third frames.

It’s a heavy blow for the Ducks, who are already without defenseman Simon Despres (upper body).

Anaheim recalled Shane O’Brien for insurance purposes, but it looks like Korbinian Holzer could take Lindholm’s spot on a pairing with Josh Manson.
