Oskar Lindblom has not been able to play hockey since the Flyers announced on Dec. 13 that he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. While he hasn’t been able to don a Flyers sweater on the ice he was able to make it to team photos and put on a huge smile despite his diagnosis.

Despite losing the beautiful blonde hair and not being able to play for the remainder of the year Lindblom is still able to put on a smile. He has not spoken publicly since his diagnoses, but he has been able to report to the Flyers facility periodically during his treatments.
