Back, as he wished, in his native Sweden, the young defender Mattias Norlinder has so far taken part in three meetings with his Frolunda Indians club, during which he collected no points.

But beyond the statistics, it is mainly Norlinder's playing time that worries, since he played only a meagre total of 19 minutes in the last two games combined, including only five minutes on Sunday. In comparison, he had spent 22 and 24 minutes on the ice during his last two games with the Laval Rocket.
It is also important to note that this short playing time was accumulated in the absence of the excellent Simon Edvinsson, first-round pick of the Red Wings in 2021 and an important element of the Indians defensive brigade.
This situation must therefore logically disturb the Canadiens' staff, which of course agreed to «lend» the 21-year-old to Frolunda, in order to promote his development and not to slow his progress. Norlinder is already a rather nebulous prkspect, let's hope that the situation will recover as quickly as possible in his case.
