Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Suits up in Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) was held off the scoresheet but logged 17:30 of ice time and had two hits in Thursday's 5-4 double-overtime win over the Islanders in Game 6.

Lindblom was back in action for the first time since Dec. 7, making his return from a Ewing's sarcoma diagnosis in December. He was immediately placed on the Flyers' power-play unit and played three-and-a-half minutes with the man advantage. Lindblom's stat line Thursday was rather irrelevant; the fact that he was even back in the lineup undoubtedly provided the Flyers with an emotional lift. The 24-year-old had 11 goals in 30 regular-season games prior to falling ill and adds another offensive weapon to the Flyers lineup heading into Game 7 on Saturday.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Makes return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblow (illness) is on the ice for warmups and will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Islanders.

This is monumental news for the Swede, who was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, and will make his first return to the lineup since Dec. 7. The 24-year-old winger may be a bit rusty in his return to the ice, and he's expected to handle a bottom-six role in his return to the lineup.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Closing in on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Alain Vigneault, Lindblom (illness) will participate in warmups ahead of Tuesday's Game 5, but he's likely still a few days away from returning to game action.

The Flyers are facing elimination Tuesday, but if they're able to pull off a win, it's possible Lindblom will be ready to return before Philadelphia's second-round series with the Islanders comes to an end. The 24-year-old winger hasn't played since being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Still out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) took the ice for warmups Sunday but will not suit up for Game 4 against the Islanders, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Just seeing Lindblom out on the ice is a terrific sign after he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December. While he's not ready for real game action yet, it looks like he could be ready to play sometime this series.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: May take warmups Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) is expected to take warmups Sunday, although it's unclear if he'll play in Game 4 versus the Islanders, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Lindblom was pictured preparing for the game, and his jersey was hung up in his locker as if he would at least take warmups. This is encouraging news for the forward that rejoined the team on the ice Aug. 18 for the first time since being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December. Even if Lindblom doesn't play Sunday, it's reasonable to believe he'll be back in the lineup soon.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Joins team Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom has completed the NHL's mandatory self-quarantine and rejoined the team, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lindblom didn't provide many details about his timetable to return after he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, but the Swedish forward expressed how much it meant to him to be with his teammates after recovering from the illness. He'll likely ease back into workouts and on-ice training, but it'll likely be awhile before he suits up for a game again.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Self-quarantining in Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) has entered the bubble in Toronto and is currently going through the NHL's mandatory self-quarantine, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lindblom hasn't practiced with the Flyers since he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, so he'll undoubtedly need some time to get back up to speed following his self-quarantine, but the fact that he may be available at all during these playoffs is miraculous in and of itself. The 23-year-old winger picked up 11 goals and 18 points through the first 30 games of the regular season before being diagnosed with his illness.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Makes final roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) was included on the team's 31-man playoff roster Sunday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

Lindblom recently signed a new three-year, $9 million contract with the team after he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December. The Swede had skated in a top-six role for the club through the first 30 games of 2019-20, picking up 11 goals and 18 assists. It's unclear whether he'll be ready to play in game action when the NHL's season resumes Aug. 1.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Lands three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) signed a three-year, $9 million contract extension with the Flyers on Wednesday.

Lindblom was having a breakout season of sorts before being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December and subsequently missing the remainder of the campaign, picking up 11 goals and 18 points while skating in a top-six role through the first 30 games of 2019-10. The 23-year-old winger likely won't take part in this year's expanded playoffs, but he's already been skating on his own, and he's expected to be 100 percent healthy when next season's training camp gets underway, whenever that may be. He'll be a sneaky good pick in the later rounds of next year's fantasy drafts as an under-the-radar player with 30-goal and 50-point upside.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Ruled out of playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (illness) won't be available if and when the NHL's proposed 24-team playoff gets underway, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lindblom was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December and has been undergoing treatment in the Philadelphia area ever since. While the 23-year-old winger took a huge step forward in his recovery by resuming skating Tuesday, it's safe to assume he's still a long way off from being cleared for game action. While the Flyers are chasing the Stanley Cup, Lindblom will continue to work toward a potential return in 2020-21.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Faring well in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said Monday that Lindblom is "doing well" as he continues to recover from a rare bone cancer, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

After being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, the 23-year-old continues to go through treatment in the Philadelphia area and has been in touch with the organization regarding his recovery. Even with the NHL season having been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, the Flyers aren't counting on Lindblom playing again in 2019-20 and remain focused on his long-term health more than anything. The young winger put up 11 goals and seven assists in 30 games before he was moved to long-term injured reserve.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom has been diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma and is expected to miss the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

Lindblom's hockey career will be placed on the back burner as he turns his focus to battling his illness. The 23-year-old Swede will likely be placed on long-term injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom (upper body) won't play Saturday against Minnesota, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers have yet to release a projected timetable for Lindblom's recovery, but he'll need to return to practice before he'll be considered an option to rejoin the lineup, so he can be considered out indefinitely until that occurs. David Kase will continue to round out Philadelphia's depth up front until Lindblom's given the green light.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Out with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche due to an upper-body injury, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lindblom's absence will leave a significant hole up front for a Flyers squad that had been clicking offensively recently, tallying four or more goals in four of their last five games. The expected length of his absence has yet to be revealed, so it's best to consider the third-year winger questionable for Saturday's contest versus the Wild until more information surfaces. David Kase will replace him Wednesday.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Bags team-leading ninth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders.

Lindblom's goal, his team-high ninth of the year, gave the Flyers a 3-0 lead 12:20 into the second period. While that lead eventually evaporated, it was another productive night for Lindblom. The 23-year-old has eight points (3g, 5a) in nine November games after an eight-point October. He's tracking to obliterate the 17 goals and 33 points he registered in 81 games last season.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Supplies assist in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom picked up an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 3-2 shootout win over the Bruins.

Lindblom set up Travis Konecny for the game's opening goal in the first period. The helper continues a remarkable start for the Swedish winger, who has 14 points in 17 games in his third campaign. He's added 38 shots on goal and 19 hits, providing a little supplemental value outside of the regular scoring categories.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: On career pace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom scored his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Maple Leafs.

At this point, Lindblom has 13 points, including eight goals, in 16 games. The young winger is on pace for his first 67-point season. Make sure you have Lindblom active.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Tallies seventh goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom posted a goal and an assist with a plus-2 rating, three shots and two hits in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Devils on Friday.

The 23-year-old continues to rack up the goals, as he now has seven scores in just 12 games this season. He's seen a small increase in shots per game, but Lindblom's scoring spree has mostly been powered by his 25.0 shooting percentage. Lindblom may be in the midst of a breakout campaign, reaching 20 goals for the first time, but he's still a sell-high candidate given that he's almost already scored half of those projected 20 goals. He has seven goals, nine points and a minus-4 rating in 12 contests.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Opens scoring with fifth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom scored a goal on his only shot Thursday in a 4-1 win over Chicago.

Lindblom finished off a 2-on-1 rush 13 minutes into the first period to get the Flyers on the board first. The 23-year-old is off to a productive start so far in 2019-20, finding the net five times in eight games and totaling seven points. His early-season shooting percentage (23.5) is bound to level off at some point, but he's got a chance to top the 17 goals he scored in 2018-19, which was his first full NHL season.

Flyers' Oskar Lindblom: Scores and adds helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom scored an even-strength goal and dished out a power-play assist during Monday's 6-2 win over Vegas.

Lindblom has his first multi-point performance of the 2019-20 season. He now has four goals and two assists on the year. Half of Lindblom's points this season have come with the man advantage, so expect to see a lot more of him when Philly goes on the power play.
