Giordano checked Lindholm in front of the Flames bench at 7:53 of the first. Lindholm immediately skated to the Hurricanes bench before walking off to the dressing room. The rookie finished with 2:57 of ice time.
Lindholm, the fifth pick at the 2013 NHL Draft, missed five games earlier this season with an upper-body injury. He has three goals and seven points in 21 games.
Right now I'm just happy to be back and get through this season and make sure I do my job. I've never had an issue with having to prove myself again and I'll try to do it again. We'll see where it takes me.
