Pine City Native and Captain Returns For A Final Run

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Minnesota Mullets Head Coach and General Manager Chris Walby today announced forward and team captain Jimmy Lindblom will return for his third season with the team in 2024-25.

“I’m very excited for Jimmy and the year that lies ahead for him,” commented the Mullets GM.  “I’m as excited for the opportunity to coach him again in his final season of junior hockey and make it the best year yet.”

Lindblom, 20 (1/29/2004), collected 26 points (12-14=26) and 59 penalty minutes in 39 regular season games and an assist in two playoff games with the Mullets in 2023-24. He ranked fifth on the Mullets in goals, assists, points and power-play assists (4). 

It was in his sophomore season with Minnesota where Lindblom was named team captain, which had him grow as a player and a person. “I have learned how to be a leader … and I also have learned how to take care of my body better,” said the forward. 

Being a leader taught him “how to help my teammates with any questions they have and how to lead by example.” 

As a rookie, Lindblom recorded 15 points (9-6=15) in 43 games. He was T-1st on the team in game-winning goals (2), T-2nd in power-play goals (2), fourth in goals and fifth in points.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound native of Pine City, Minn., played four seasons at Pine City Area High School (2018-22). Through 95 games with the Dragons the right-shot forward amassed 42 points (20-22=42). In his final season with Pine City Area he finished fourth on the team with nine goals and fifth with 21 points (9-12=21).

“I’ve known Jimmy since his freshman year in high school. We’ve been a part of some awesome games and have made several great memories together,” mentioned Walby. “I’m very much looking forward to this chapter and can’t wait for the puck to drop this fall.”

Lindblom has an older brother, Jake, who skated with the Mullets for three seasons (2017-20) before committing to play NCAA hockey at Bethel University and who has since moved on to put up respectable numbers at Waldorf University. 

Head Coach Walby sees the same future for the younger Lindblom. “Jimmy is an impact player for us and a great leader on this team. He’s determined to help win games and move on to a solid NCAA program.”

Jimmy will be entering his third and final season with Minnesota prepared. “I’m coming into this season ready to win at all costs,” said the captain. “I’m looking forward to coming back to see friends and end my junior career as a Mullet.”
