#OskarStrong: Nicklas Backstrom and Carl Hagelin support countryman Oskar Lindblom who was diagnosed with cancer
Nicklas Backstrom had a request for the Flyers ahead of Wednesday Night Rivalry game in Philadelphia, PA: Might he have a few t-shirts?
Backstrom and teammate and fellow Swede Carl Hagelin received and donned black shirts with purple text bearing the number 23 and the words “Oskar Strong.”
23-year-old Flyers’ forward Oskar Lindblom was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer, Ewing sarcoma, in December 2019. He’s expected to miss the remainder of the season.
