Thor — Hampus Lindholm

There are many qualities that Hampus Lindholm shares with Thor aside from his long locks of flowing blonde hair. With the exit of players like Shea Theodore, Brandon Montour, and Sami Vatanen due to trades over the past few years, Lindholm has become an anchor of the blueline.

From the time Thor entered the MCU, he went on a journey to finding the balance between being a leader and a warrior. It is easy to see those qualities in Lindholm as well. While he is not quite a veteran yet, he has found his balance between being a leader among his teammates and one of their stronger, defensive weapons. He is also one of the most equally balanced defensemen on the team, having the incredible quality of being both offensively and defensively minded.

Although he is not overly physical, he also isn’t afraid to “bring down the hammer” when it is appropriate and uses great discernment. Aside from a major shoulder injury he dealt with last season and the season prior, Lindholm has managed to stay immune to serious injury and plays upwards to 70+ games most seasons.

He is also extremely agile, and while Lindholm may not have the ability to summon lightning, he can certainly be lightning on his skates. With the increase he has seen in ice time this season, he has proven that he also has incredible endurance and can stand up under the pressure.
