Lindberg is tied for third with Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid among NHL rookie scoring leaders with 12 points (seven goals, five assists) through 17 games while averaging 12:39 of ice time. There is no doubt that Lindberg makes the most of his third-line minutes and he can be the key to a successful DraftKings team on a two-game night. Lindberg should be a good selection against the Toronto Maple Leafs at home Sunday (7 p.m. ET; NHL Network, Sportsnet). He has four of his seven goals and three of his five assists in 10 games at Madison Square Garden, along with nine blocked shots and 16 shots on goal at home.
