Oscar Lindberg (born 29 October 1991) is a Swedish professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing with HC Dynamo Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He previously played for the New York Rangers, the Vegas Golden Knights and the Ottawa Senators in the National Hockey League (NHL). He represented Sweden in the 2011 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. He also represented Sweden on their gold medal-winning 2013 IIHF World Championship team.
New York Rangers
Lindberg was named the Rangers' best rookie in their 2015 training camp. He made the Rangers out of training camp for the 2015–16 season and scored his first NHL goal in the first period on opening night against Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks.
Vegas Golden Knights
On 21 June 2017, Lindberg went unprotected by the Rangers in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft and was subsequently selected by the Vegas Golden Knights. As a restricted free agent he later agreed on a two-year contract worth $3.4 million with the Golden Knights on 4 July 2017.
On 10 October 2017, Lindberg scored his first goal with the Golden Knights in the Knights first franchise home game.
On 26 August 2019, as an NHL free agent, Lindberg joined EV Zug of the National League (NL) on a one-year deal with an option for a second season. In the 2019–20 season, Lindberg was placed in an increased role with Zug, registering 14 goals and 30 points through 46 games, before the season was cancelled due to COVID-19.
Having left his optional contract with Zug, Lindberg moved to the KHL as a free agent, securing a one-year deal with HC Dynamo Moscow on 8 May 2020.
