Flyers Waive Oskar Lindblom, Donate $100K To Cancer Organization

Jul 12, 2022 11:57 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers placed forward Oskar Lindblom on waivers Tuesday with the intent of buying out the final year of the 25-year-old cancer survivor's contract.

General manager Chuck Fletcher called it a "very difficult decision" to free up salary-cap space by cutting a player who recovered after being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma.

The Flyers will donate $100,000 in Lindblom's name to a Philadelphia organization that supports families impacted by cancer.
