Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Opens camp in top-six role

Lindblom skated alongside Claude Giroux and Travis Konecny at the team's first practice of training camp Friday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Coach Dave Hakstol indicated that Lindblom and fellow rookie Nolan Patrick looked like they belonged in the top-six group and that, Carchidi suggests, could be a sign of things to come; he anticipates the 21-year-old will secure an Opening Night roster spot. The Swede totaled 47 points over 52 contests in his native country last season and could be a sneaky late-round fantasy asset if he indeed forces his way into a top-six role this season.
