Lindbohm, 22, has posted 3 goals and 8 assists in 43 games for the Wolves this season, which gives him 9 goals and 20 assists in 96 games for his two-year stint in Chicago. The Helsinki, Finland, native also has appeared in 7 games for St. Louis this year.
Gervais, 24, completed his four-year college career with Minnesota State University on Saturday in the WCHA Final Five championship game.
