Minnesota announced Monday that freshman defenseman Ryan Lindgren will miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season with a lower-leg injury.

Lindgren suffered the injury in Minnesota’s regular-season finale against Michigan State on Saturday, March 11.

The Minneapolis native will have surgery later this week and is expected to make a full recovery.

“Ryan was having a really great year for us as a freshman, and you hate to see such a promising season end this way,” Gophers coach Don Lucia said in a news release. “It’s tough to lose him for the postseason, but we have a great medical team here at the University of Minnesota, and we know we’ll have him back soon.”

Lindgren played in 32 games as a rookie and recorded 50 blocked shots as well as seven points (one goal, six assists). He was also instrumental in the U.S. National Junior Team’s gold medal performance at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championships in Toronto and Montreal earlier this year.

    did the other guy take him down or did he just fly into the boards?

      he was racing to the dot with a Spartan player to on a potential icing call. The Spartan player sort of tugged on his shoulder and Lindgren fell and slid into the boards. He was skating so hard that there was no chance for him to avoid sliding feet first into the end boards. I am pretty sure it is a broken leg or ankle.

        Could have been penalized, pulled down from behind. Just what they were attempting to eliminate with hybrid icing. Easy 2 for interference and one could understand 5 and game for dangerous play. In any event, sad news.

          I have made $104k in 2016 by working from my home and I did that by wor­king part-time f­o­r 3 or sometimes more hours daily. I used an earning opportunity I came across from company that i found online and I am so happy that i earned so much money on the side. It’s really newbie friendly a­­n­­d I’m so thankful that i found it. Check out what I did… http://tny­.­im/8Al

          I totally disagree. To me it looked like 2 players racing to beat one another. Didn’t really see any contact where a penalty could be called. I had looked for that in the replay as well when I was watching. Sometimes crap just happens…

          • I profited $104,000 last year by working online and I did that by wor­king part time f­­o­­r several hrs every day. I followed a money making opportunity I found on-line and I am so amazed that i was able to make so much extra income. It’s very user friendly and I’m just so grateful that i learned about it.

            I’m a Gophs fan jmo and I agree with you. It was just one of those bad times when Lindgren lost his edge as they were approaching the boards. The MSU guy was not at fault.
