St. Cloud State Goalie Charlie Lindgren Questionable for Minnesota

Matt Christians

St. Cloud State starting goalie Charlie Lindgren was able to finish last Saturday's 3-2 win at Union, but just barely. He had to be helped off the ice by teammates after the game suffering from what appeared to be a lower body injury.

On Monday, during his weekly coach's show, St. Cloud head coach Bob Motzko said Lindgren didn't skate during the team's brief practice on Monday.

When talking about back-up goalie Rasmus Reijola getting the opportunity to replace Lindgren nine minutes into Friday night's game against Union, Motzko said, "What a great opportunity to get a new goalie in there that can play two and a half periods and get some playing time, which we're going to need. I don't know where Charlie will be by the end of the week, but I'm glad we did that, because Rasmus got some quality playing time."

You can listen to Motzko's coach's show here, with most of the pertinent info coming in the first segment.

Reijola is a redshirt sophomore that didn't play for the Huskies last season, so Friday night was his first game action since March 2nd of 2013 when he relieved Ryan Faragher in a 5-1 loss to Michigan Tech.

Lindgren's overall statistics haven't been pretty through his first four games as St. Cloud's starting goalie, but he has played excellent in both of St. Cloud's wins over top-5 ranked teams.
