According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, contract talks between the Anaheim Ducks and restricted free agent defenceman Hampus Lindholm remain stalled.

The stumbling block appears to be related to the six-year, $32.4 million contract signed by Buffalo Sabres defenceman Rasmus Ristolainen.

Lindholm, who was drafted sixth overall in 2012, has scored 23 goals and added 69 assists for 92 points in 236 games over three seasons with the Ducks.
