Flyers forward Lindblom diagnosed with cancer

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Philadelphia Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom will miss the rest of the 2019-20 season. He is dealing with something that’s much bigger than sports.

Lindblom has been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma. This is a form of cancer that grows in the bones and the tissue around the bones.

The discovery was made by doctors at the University of Pennsylvania.

“He will undergo further testing and evaluation next week and begin treatment immediately thereafter,” the Flyers said in a statement. “The Flyers will do everything possible to support Oskar and assist him in securing the best care available. Out of respect for Oskar and his family, the team will have no further comment at this time and asks that Oskar be afforded a period of privacy so that he may focus his efforts on his treatment and a return to full health.”
