Petteri Lindbohm(48) St. Louis Blues

Petteri-Lindbolm

St. Louis Blues‘ 6th round pick in the 2012 draft (#176 overall) Finnish-born rookie defenseman Petteri Lindbohm(48) has been on a slingshot between the parent club and affiliate Chicago Wolves.

He has already been reassigned and recalled 10 times (5 of those in December alone) since the start of the 2014/2015 season.

The fairly large 6’3″ 198 lbs. d-man connected with his first NHL goal in his most recent journey back. The tally goes along with his one assist in 10 games.

In that contest he played a season high 26 shifts for 17:06 of total ice, including a small amount of time on the power play and penalty kill, had 3 shots on net and got into his first fight in the big league.

He has 4 fighting major in 41 AHL games, so is not afraid to mix it up, and has scored 6 goals and 11 assists with a +5 rating.

The 21-year old came in with 2 years of pro experience, 72 contests in Liiga with Jokerit and Assat and looks to be well on his way to a permanent roster spot with the Blues.
