Engvall and Lindgren sign ATO

Recommended Posts

I just seen Engvall and Lindgren signed ATO to come over from Allsvenskan and re-inforce the Marlies for the playoffs. Im excited to see what they can bring as both guys had really solid seasons and finished top 10 in scoring.....Engvall 8th overall and Lindgren 7th among d-men. They both rank top 5 for U24 and top 3 for U21 scoring(Lindgren among d-men).

They look like pretty astute later round picks by the leafs being 4th(Lindgren) and 6th rounders(Engvall) and evidence that our european scouting has vastly improved under Shanahan. Although a few top scouts were holdovers from prior years. So its not totally a Shanahan play but his vision from day 1 was to increase the quantity and quality of draft picks entering our development program. Namely by keeping / aquiring more draft picks and having smart people scouting / evaluating / developing these players.

Generally seems to be working.

Engvall has great size / work ethic and his production seems to be improving. Lindgren is a speedy puck moving d-man whose putting up respectable numbers for a young player in tier 2 senior hockey. Both could bring needed depth to the Marlies for the playoffs but more importantly next season.
