With all that’s negative in the world today, some positivity struck this afternoon. Oskar Lindblom will be finishing up his final round of cancer treatment. Oskar, who is 23 was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma on December 13, 2019 and it struck the heart strings of all Flyers fans, if not all hockey fans. This is the type of content I love to see during this terrible time we are in.
Via Sam Carchidi: Flyers left winger Oskar Lindblom continues to make progress in his battle against a rare bone cancer. Lindblom, 23, was tied for the Flyers’ team lead with 11 goals when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in December, and he has missed the rest of the suspended season. The Sweden native has been undergoing treatments at Penn, and he dropped by the Flyers’ locker room a few times between hospital visits.
“Oskar’s going through his last treatments coming up here, but everything I’ve been told from Jimmy (McCrossin, the team’s trainer) has been very positive,” Flyers assistant general manager Brett Flahr said on Monday night. “He feels great, considering the condition he’s in. He’s such a great kid and he’s determined. His focus is to play as soon as possible.”
