Blues Sign Top Prospect Theo Lindstein

The St. Louis Blues have made a move, as they have signed prospect defenseman Theo Lindstein to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Lindstein, 19, was selected by the Blues with the 29th overall pick of the 2023 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot defenseman is viewed as having plenty of upside and has the tools to be an impactful NHL defenseman later down the road. As a result, it makes sense that the Blues have now signed him to his entry-level contract.

Lindstein has spent most of this season in the HockeyAllsvenskan league in Sweden with Brynas IF. In 49 games with the club this campaign, he has four goals to go along with 15 points. 

Lindstein will likely need some time in the AHL before he makes the jump to be a full-time NHL player. While this is the case, there's no question that he has the tools to become a big part of their blue line in the future, and it will be intriguing to see how he performs with the club from here.
