Philadelphia Flyers Winter/Spring 25 Under 25: No. 1

Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom was diagnosed back in December with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. In the months since then Lindblom has been fighting the disease, and the Flyers and really the entire NHL has come together to show their support for him.

When we first began this exercise, our staff came to agree on a couple of things. One, it does none of us any good — nor would it be in the slightest enjoyable — to try and guess how Lindblom’s fight with cancer will affect his hockey-playing career and how the obvious uncertainties he faces stack up against those of, say, whether Travis Sanheim or Phil Myers will grow into a top-pair defenseman.
