Lindblom joins Flyers for team photo

Forward receiving treatment after being diagnosed with form of bone cancer @NHLdotcom

Oskar Lindblom pulled on his Philadelphia Flyers jersey for the team photo Monday.

Lindblom hasn't played since the Flyers announced Dec. 13 that the 23-year-old forward was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. He will not play again this season while receiving treatment.

Lindblom smiled Monday despite losing his blond hair, standing in the second row between teammate Michael Raffl and assistant coach Ian Laperriere. He has spent time around the Flyers periodically during his treatment but has not spoken publicly since being diagnosed.

A Philadelphia-area company, Biscuit Tees, has produced OskarStrong shirts that have been worn by players and broadcasters around the NHL. Proceeds from sales of the shirt have raised more than $225,000 for Hockey Fights Cancer.
