Stars defense prospect Esa Lindell assisted on the game-winning goal as Finland knocked off Russia, 4-1, in preliminary round play at the World Junior Championship in Malmo, Sweden on Monday.

Lindell, Dallas’ third round pick (74th overall) in 2012, had the secondary assist on an even strength goal that gave Finland a 2-1 lead at 10:20 of the second period.

Lindell finished the game with a team-high four shots on goal and a plus-one rating. Lindell has one goal and one assist in three tournament games so far. Finland wraps up preliminary round play with a game against Switzerland on Tuesday.
