Lindstrom Named Rbk/AHL Player of the Week

Even more Crunch news... Joakim Lindstrom has been named AHL Player of the week:

In two games last week Lindstrom had 3 goals and 4 assists. Lindstrom now has 22 points in 20 games.

Now my next thought is, does a week like that earn Lindstrom a trip up to the big squad? I think if there were injuries in the top 6 that answer would be 'yes' -- the problem for him is that the Jackets have been a relatively healthy bunch this season and with Freddy Modin due back from IR soon that further decreases his chances.

He'll just need to keep pluggin away and if he keeps this kind of productivity up he's make it realy hard to keep him down for much longer. I just hope if/when he does get called up he gets a real look in the top 6 and gets some quality PP time.
