He’s in. Welcome back, @oskarlindblom. pic.twitter.com/SeMbnLKzur — Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) September 3, 2020
I mean what a phenomenal story. Lindbolm was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer in December and now he gets his first start since beating it in a must win game six. Lindbolm is an inspiration to anyone who’s fought cancer, is fighting cancer, and honestly anyone in general. I’ll be rooting for him all night, he might be a little rusty but it’s a win or go home situation. The guy is going to bring a ton of energy to the ice. His presence alone should be a huge moral boost for the team, if Oskar can beat cancer and give 110% effort than the rest of the team sure as shit can and will. This Islanders vs Flyers game 6 just got a whole lot more interesting.
After being diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer back in December Lindbolm will return to play tonight for the Flyers
