LA may have gotten one of the best steals from the ’09 draft. Linden is smaller but that has not hurt his play at all. Linden left junior hockey as the leading scorer of all Canadian Major Junior with 116 PTS in 69 games. He has jumped into a very good AHL program in Manchester and has fit in seamlessly. He has played top six minutes, produced 40 points good for third on the team and has been very responsible in his role, just like in junior. [...] Linden will see another season in Manchester next year, will be looking to add size, professional consistency and drive the offense.
