Says Frank Seravalli of TSN.com:
Oskar Lindblom Age: 24 Last Season: 30 games, 11 goals, 7 assists, 18 points
2020-21 Button Bump: 25 goals, 25 assists, 50 points (56 games: 17 + 17 = 34)
Lindblom was one of hockey’s many tear-jerker stories last season, managing to make it back into the Flyers’ lineup for two playoff games in August after only ending his chemotherapy treatments for Ewing’s sarcoma (bone cancer) on July 2.
Lindblom is reportedly back to full strength now and making an impression in training camp.
He’s more than just a great story, he’s a great hockey player.
He led the Flyers in goals (11) at the time of his shocking diagnosis last December.
Bet against Lindblom bouncing back to that level at your own peril.
