• His mother’s cousin, Jan Erixon, has coached Lindberg throughout minor hockey and has had a big influence on his career – Erixon was drafted 30th overall in 1981 by the Rangers and he played 10 seasons in New York (1983-93).

• His most memorable hockey experience was playing for Sweden in his first international game against rival Finland and he models his game after Sidney Crosby because “he has everything a center needs”.
