Lindholm is a smooth-skating defenseman with a long reach and tremendous vision that allows him to quickly move the puck up the ice.
A first-round selection (No. 6) by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2012 NHL Draft, Lindholm made his NHL debut at age 19 on Oct. 6, 2013, a 3-2 Ducks victory against the Winnipeg Jets, the first of six straight wins with Lindholm in the lineup. On Oct. 13, 2013, he had two assists for his first two NHL points in a 4-1 win against the Ottawa Senators. On Jan. 11, 2014, he scored two goals in a 5-3 win against the Phoenix Coyotes and became the second-youngest player (19 years, 356 days) in Ducks history to score twice in one game.
