History

2010-11: Jaden Lindo skated for the Toronto Marlboros major bantam team that competed in the OHL Cup.

2011-12: Lindo scored 15 goals with 20 assists and had 34 penalty minutes for the Toronto Marlboros minor midget AAA team. He was selected by Owen Sound in the second round (26th overall) of the 2012 OHL Priority Draft.

2012-13: Lindo played for Owen Sound in his first OHL season and skated for Canada Ontario in the 2013 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He scored 5 goals with 17 assists and was +12 with 55 penalty minutes in 63 regular season games. The Attack finished second to OHL champion London in the Midwest Division and advanced to the second round in the playoffs. Lindo had 1 assist and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes in 12 playoff games. He scored 2 goals with 1 assist and had 14 penalty minutes in five games for Canada Ontario.

2013-14: Lindo was limited to 40 games with the Attack in his second OHL season due to a series of injuries in the second half— suffering a season-ending lower body injury in February. He scored 9 goals with 9 assists and was -9 with 41 penalty minutes. Owen Sound reached the playoffs; finishing fourth in the Midwest Division. Lindo was ranked 96th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting mid-term rankings, slipping to 154th in the final rankings, and was selected by Pittsburgh in the sixth round (173rd overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Lindo is a big, tough winger. He is not offensively dynamic but plays with a high motor and is always looking to deliver a bone-crunching body check. He is very strong and is good at battling for the puck along the walls and in the corners but does not always seem to know what to do when he has the puck on his stick. Lindo is very good at using his frame to screen the goaltender, particularly on the power play.

Future

Lindo attended training camp with Pittsburgh but was unable to participate in activities while recuperating from his knee surgery. He returned to Owen Sound for his third OHL season; making his 2014-15 debut on November 6th. Playing in mostly a lower line role for the Attack as he works his way back from his injury Lindo has made a minimal impact offensively but has been a willing combatant when confronted. While there is some offensive upside to his game Lindo's role at the next level may be that of an energy line forward and possible enforcer.

Entering the 2010 NHL Draft the Nashville Predators were coming off a successful regular season followed by yet another disappointing first round series loss in the playoffs.

Nashville finished third in the Central Division in 2009-10, reaching 100 points for the third time in five seasons, but lost to eventual Stanley Cup champion Chicago in six games in the first round. This marked the fifth straight time Nashville lost in the first round and the Predators would not win their first playoff series until the 2010-11 season.

Despite an incredible offensive duo in budding superstar Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis, the Tampa Bay Lightning once again missed the post-season in the 2009-10 season. The pair combined for 189 points, but with a who’s who of aging veterans and a still-young Victor Hedman on the blue line, the Lightning finished fourth in the Southeast Division with a 34-36-12 record.

The 2010 trade deadline marked a dynamic change in the New Jersey Devils organization, as GM Lou Lamoriello went against his principles to acquire star forward Ilya Kovalchuk—giving up a 1st round draft pick to make it happen. After sending a 5th rounder to Toronto in exchange for Martin Skoula, the Devils went to the 2010 NHL Draft in Los Angeles with just five selections. Read more»
