The Fargo Force announced today the addition of defenseman Christopher Lynch from the Dubuque Fighting Saints in exchange for Fargo’s 6th pick in Phase II of the 2022 USHL Draft.
A native of Karlstad, Sweden, Lynch spent the 2020-21 season with the Farjestad BK J20, and the Linden Hockey team, both based in Sweden.
