  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Generates helper

    Lindell notched an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Kraken.

    Lindell snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper on Roope Hintz's empty-netter. The 29-year-old Lindell has been a model of consistency, posting between 23 and 27 points in five of the last seven seasons, with one of the exceptions being the 56-game 2020-21 campaign. He's at 24 points, 99 shots on net, 142 blocked shots, 71 hits and a plus-14 rating through 75 contests in 2023-24, so he should finish the campaign in that established point range barring a late surge of offense.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Snags assist Saturday

    Lindell notched an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

    Lindell has helpers in consecutive games following an eight-game slump.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Manages helper in win

    Lindell posted an assist, two blocked shots, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 6-2 win over the Ducks.

    Lindell ended an eight-game point drought with his helper on Chris Tanev's opening tally in the first period. The two have been skating together to start Tanev's Stars tenure, giving the team a solid shutdown duo on the second pairing. Lindell is at 22 points, 91 shots on net, 65 hits, 128 blocked shots and a plus-14 rating through 65 outings in a quietly effective campaign as usual.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Snaps slump with goal

    Lindell scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Bruins.

    Lindell stepped up with fellow Finnish defenseman Miro Heiskanen (personal) away from the team. Lindell's goal put the Stars ahead 3-2 in the third period, and it ended his eight-game point drought. The 29-year-old is up to 21 points, 78 shots on net, 104 blocked shots, 54 hits and a plus-16 rating through 56 appearances. Lindell will be leaned on heavily while the Stars' defense corps is missing three regulars, though Heiskanen should be back before Jani Hakanpaa (upper body) or Nils Lundkvist (concussion).

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Stays warm with goal

    Lindell scored a goal on two shots, blocked four shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Red Wings.

    Lindell hadn't scored in 18 games, but he had a solid eight assists in that span. The 29-year-old defenseman continues to pick up the pace on offense with Miro Heiskanen (lower body) out, but Heiskanen's nearing return will likely cut into Lindell's playing time. Lindell has 20 points, 66 shots on net, 90 blocked shots and a plus-15 rating through 47 outings overall.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Deals helper Saturday

    Lindell notched an assist in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Devils.

    Lindell has six helpers, 17 blocked shots, 14 shots on goal and a plus-7 rating over his last seven games. It's not unusual for the 29-year-old to have a stretch of productivity every now and then, and this one has come at a good time with the Stars missing Miro Heiskanen (lower body). Lindell has 19 points, 61 shots on net, 86 blocks, 38 hits and a plus-14 rating over 45 appearances in a top-four role this season.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Produces assist in win

    Lindell notched an assist, two shots on goal, four blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Kings.

Lindell has quietly put together a strong campaign with 18 points, 57 shots on net, 80 blocked shots, 37 hits and a plus-14 rating over 43 appearances. He's on track to top 30 points for just the second time in his nine-year career.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Three helpers in big win

    Lindell notched three assists in Wednesday's 7-2 rout of the Wild.

    Seven different Stars found the back of the net, but Lindell was the main facilitator of the team's offense. It's the first three-point game of the season for the 29-year-old blueliner, and over the last 14 contests he's collected a solid two goals and nine points. Lindell hasn't topped 25 points since 2018-19, but he's currently on pace to surpass the career-high 32 points he produced that season.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Records assist in win

    Lindell posted an assist and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-0 win over the Wild.

    Lindell has three helpers over his last eight outings. He set up Tyler Seguin's third-period tally Monday, doubling the Stars' lead to 2-0 at the time. Lindell will be tasked with helping to fill the void left in the wake of Miro Heiskanen's lower-body injury. Lindell is at 14 points, 48 shots on net, 71 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 39 appearances. His contributions will mainly be on defense, though the 29-year-old can chip in a few points every now and then.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Puts up helper in win

    Lindell logged an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Lindell reached the 10-assist mark when he set up Mason Marchment's tally with 1:02 left in the game. The helper was Lindell's second over the last four contests. The 29-year-old blueliner had seven points across 14 outings in December. For the campaign, he's managed 13 points, 42 shots on net, 66 blocked shots, 27 hits and a plus-10 rating while continuing to fill a defense-first role in the Stars' top four.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Snags helper in win

    Lindell recorded an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Predators.

    Lindell set up an Evgenii Dadonov tally in the third period. The helper was Lindell's sixth point over 11 games in December. The defenseman has been steady in a top-four role, racking up 12 points, 41 shots on net, 27 hits, 60 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating through 32 appearances. He could be useful as a solid all-around blueliner in deeper formats.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Scores again Friday

    Lindell scored a goal and blocked two shots in Friday's 5-4 win over the Senators.

    Lindell's first-period tally cut the Stars' deficit to 3-2. The 29-year-old blueliner has three points over his last two games, scoring a goal in each of them. He generally doesn't sustain offense for long stretches -- Lindell is more of a stay-at-home defenseman. He's at a solid 11 points with 39 shots on net, 54 blocked shots, 22 hits and a plus-5 rating through 28 appearances this season.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: One of each Monday

    Lindell scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Lindell beat the buzzer in the first period to put the Stars ahead 2-1. He also set up a Jason Robertson tally in the second. Lindell has a pair of multi-point efforts through six games in December, but that's all of his offense for the month. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to 10 points, 38 shots on net, 52 blocked shots, 21 hits and a plus-5 rating through 27 outings this season. He's played right around a 25-point pace for most of the last four campaigns, and he's on track to do just a little better than that in 2023-24.

  • Stars' Esa Lindell: Two assists in Saturday's win

    Lindell provided a pair of assists and went plus-3 in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Lightning.

    Lindell snapped a five-game skid by helping out on tallies from Mason Marchment and Sam Steel. The 29-year-old Lindell has maintained a top-four role as primarily a defensive presence for a strong Stars team this season. He's up to eight points, 28 shots on net, 44 blocked shots, 18 hits and a plus-8 rating through 22 appearances. Lindell is unlikely to have a chance at power-play time with Miro Heiskanen, Thomas Harley and Nils Lundkvist seeing most of the man-advantage opportunities.

    Lindell notched an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Lindell has added 20 shots on net, 36 blocks, 13 hits and a plus-4 rating. He's been firmly in a second-pairing role lately, and he's doing enough on offense to garner some attention in standard fantasy formats.
