Alain Vigneault, Flyers all smiles after seeing Oskar Lindblom


Nothing makes the Flyers smile more than seeing Oskar Lindblom's captivating smile.

His smile always brightens the Flyers' day.

The 23-year-old forward visited the Flyers on Friday at Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey. Lindblom has begun his treatment for Ewing's sarcoma.

Head coach Alain Vigneault was proudly wearing an "Oskar Strong" shirt (more here on the shirts by Biscuit Tees).

He's looking real good," Vigneault told reporters at Skate Zone. "The guys call him 'Sunshine' in that movie 'Remember the Titans,' the quarterback, he does look like him. And he's got the same beautiful smile today, so it's real good to see him.

Best part of my day so far.

When Lindblom welcomed his teammates home in December, he uplifted the Flyers, who went on to win four straight games.

The Flyers smile when they see his smile. And you can bet their smiles mean a lot to Lindblom, too.
