PHILADELPHIA -- Oskar Lindblom will be in the thoughts and under the jerseys of his Philadelphia Flyers teammates when they play the Buffalo Sabres at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; ESPN+, NBCSP, MSG-B, NHL.TV).

The players will wear black and purple #OskarStrong shirts under their jerseys for the rest of the season to honor the forward, who the Flyers announced Friday had been diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a form of bone cancer.

The shirts are made by Biscuit Tees, and available to be purchased online at, a company owned and operated by Kim Parent, daughter of Flyers Hall of Fame goalie Bernie Parent..

The Flyers wore purple Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys during warm-up before their 4-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday. The jerseys were autographed and are being auctioned off until Jan. 2, with proceeds benefiting Ewing's sarcoma research at Sarcoma Foundation of America.
