According to a report from Philadelphia Flyers insider Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom is set to undergo his final treatments and is “making progress” in his fight against cancer. 

“Oskar’s going through his last treatments coming up here, but everything I’ve been told from Jimmy [McCrossin, the team’s trainer] has been very positive,” Flyers assistant general manager Brett Flahr said Monday night. “He feels great, considering the condition he’s in. He’s such a great kid and he’s determined. His focus is to play as soon as possible.”

The 23 year old Lindblom was the team’s leading goalscorer when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a form of bone cancer, in December. He’s been ruled out for a return this season, but there’s no timetable for next season and beyond. The focus all along for Lindblom and the Flyers is just assuring that he can get back to full health so he can live a normal, happy, healthy life.

“For all the stuff this guy has been through, he looks terrific,” Flahr said. “The last time I saw him, he looked good. He had that smile on his face. He’s doing things like cardio [workouts] to keep up his strength as much as he can. I think as soon as he gets his last treatments, the worst is over for him.”

We’re all with you, Oskar! Keep fighting!
