Lindgren closing in on franchise records

Stampede goaltender Charlie LIndgren is closing in on a couple Stampede franchise records. At 30-11-2, Lindgren leads the USHL in wins and needs just one win to tie a franchise record for most wins in a season (31) set by David Bowen back during the 1999-2000 season. He is also just two wins shy of tying a franchise record for most wins in a career (41) set by Kellen Briggs. 

The Lakeville, Minn. native has already committed to St. Cloud State University and currently ranks fourth in the league in minutes played (2439:56).
