Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Elias Lindholm
Elias Lindholm was born on December 2, 1994 in Broden Sweden. The 6’1 centre was playing professional hockey in Sweden when he was drafted in the first round, 5th overall, by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Lindholm would make the opening night roster for the Carolina Hurricane’s 2013-14 season. He would make his NHL debut on October 4, 2013 in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings. Six days later, Lindholm would score his first NHL career goal in a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals. Lindholm’s goal makes him the youngest Swedish born player to score a goal in the NHL, beating Gabriel Landeskog’s record by 13 days.

During the 2014-15 season, Lindholm would establish new career highs in goals, assists and points. In 81 games for the Hurricanes, Lindholm scored 17 times and added 22 assists for 39 points. He would better those assist totals with 28 the following season and once again record 39 points. He followed that up with another 39 point season the following year and in 2016-17, Lindholm surpassed the 40-point mark for the first time in his career.

After four seasons with the Hurricanes, Lindholm's time in Carolina would come to an end. He was traded along with Noah Hanafin to the Calgary Flames in exchange for Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland. Days later, Lindholm and the Flames came to terms on a six year contract extension.

On the international stage, Lindholm has represented Sweden numerous times, including winning gold at the 2017 World Championships and silver medal finishes at the 2013 and 2014 World Junior Championship.
