Scouting Reports:
“Tenacious and speedy two-way winger with natural scoring ability, Lind is not a power forward by trade but isn’t afraid to engage his opponents physically, can score from almost anywhere on the ice with both a good nose for the net and a shot capable of beating goaltenders from the outside.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A smart and skilled but not overly dynamic offensive forward…a slippery skater who is able to hang onto the puck for lengthy periods thanks to his good awareness of where pressure is coming from…is very agile and accelerates quickly, enabling him to get a bit of room from opponents…has good puck skill using his hand position and speed to bring pucks in tight to his body, protecting it…can run himself out of space by trying to hold onto the puck and make that extra move…very heads up passer who leads his man perfectly…makes gorgeous saucer passes…is a playmaker but doesn’t mind taking shots, although his release is a little slow…his speed and smarts allowed him to find a lot of openings to get chances…defensively he uses his stick to close off options…not consistently physical but has shown some fire in his belly after the whistle, getting in faces and causing commotion…strong awareness and smarts should help with his potential to contribute at the pro level.  (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
