Welcome to the NHL Charlie!

Sioux Falls Stampede alum Charlie Lindgren, in his NHL debut, gave the Montreal Canadians a win last night over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Lindgren, fresh from completing his college career at St. Cloud State, would let the first shot slip past for a goal but after that settled in to provide a strong defense for the Habs.

Lindgren stopped 26 shots on goal for the 4-2 win.

Not only did Lindgren get a win in his first NHL game in a Canadians uniform, he also earned first star of the game.

And where will the game puck go?  To his grandfather.

Sioux Falls will be cheering you on Charlie.
