Elias Lindholm Jersey Card

Elias Lindholm had a breakout season with the Calgary Flames last year, posting 27 goals, 51 assists and 78 points in 81 games playing alongside Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau on the team's top line.

He is off to a similar start this year with 5 goals and 6 points in 9 games for the 4-4-1 Flames, but he may miss a step or even a few games following a mean slash from the Detroit Red Wings' Darren Helm last night. Both players were at it, and both went beyond the line, but only Lindholm got injured, resulting in Helm getting the maximum allowable fine of $5000.

Prior to coming out of his shell in Calgary, Lindholm had been the Carolina Hurricanes' first-round pick (5th overall) in the 2013 draft, and the ultra-defensive team lost patience with his 40-point production and shipped the 23-year-old out of town for more defensive depth (with Noah Hanifin, for Adam Fox, Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland) in one of many questionable moves they've made since building their top-tier defense and lucking out with offensive production from Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho.

If only they had had a plan... and goaltending. Which usually comes with a plan.

Here is Lindholm wearing Carolina's black (third) jersey from a couple of years ago on card #GJ-EL from Upper Deck's 2015-16 Series 1 collection and UD Game Jersey sub-set:
It features a red game-worn jersey swatch that could be from any of their uniforms.

Internationally, Lindholm has won two silver medals with Team Sweden at the 2013 and 2014 World Juniors, as well as gold at the 2017 World Championships.
