Boston Bruins: Is Par Lindholm expected to replace Marcus Johansson?

Par Lindholm came into the NHL last season on a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs, expected to play as their fourth-line center but ending up on the wing more often than not. With the Boston Bruins having a clear gap on the third line left wing, maybe Par Lindholm is the perfect cheap replacement for Marcus Johansson, who departed, signing with the Buffalo Sabres.

Announced as a new Boston Bruins player late on day one of free agency, Par Lindholm offers a degree of versatility to the team that means he could slot in just as comfortably as a center, should Charlie Coyle bump up the line-up, as he might on Coyle’s left wing.
