Gustav Lindstrom Parents

Gustav Lindstrom is the son of Johanna and Anders Lindstrom. Lindstrom’s parents flew from Sweden to see their son make his NHL debut at KeyBank Center in Buffalo.

“This is amazing to be here and watch Gus,” Johanna said. “It’s lots of feelings to be here.”

Lindstrom admitted after the game that he was nervous most of the day but his parents thought he seemed to take everything in stride.

“Very good, I think. He has adapted well,” Anders said after the first period. “He seemed real calm, I think. Playing a simple game, not overdoing things. He looked calm.”

Mom told him that it was just the usual game and Dad said it was good for Lindstrom to play with such good players.

“It’s still hockey. Perhaps the game is a bit faster but I think when the players are better, it can be a little bit easier to play, I think,” Anders said. “I think that suits Gustav.”
