    Jan. 7 update (source: Philadelphia Inquirer)

    Oskar Lindblom’s diagnosis highlights latest treatments for rare bone cancer
    The hockey team revealed the diagnosis last month but has not disclosed the stage or location of the cancer that has sidelined the 23-year-old left winger. He is receiving care at the University of Pennsylvania.​

    Excellent news, but I won't get truly excited until I see the word remission

    I remember the good times when my grandmother responded extremely well to her chemo with "over 90% response".

    Except it wasn't 100% and it killed her a few months later

    Sorry to cast some gloom.

    No, some caution is always advised until the R word is in. Until it's gone via chemo/radiation, and they've ruled out surgery to get any final spot(s), we can't do anything but hope. My dad had a similar story. 'We thought we got it all, but too bad for you.'

    Amazing news. Keeping my fingers crossed so he can finish it off with a few final steps. Good luck, Oskar. You will be back sooner than the NHL

    "Could not have gone any better for Oskar" is the best news I have heard this entire year so far.

    The fact that he's going to resume training suggests there's no serious structural damage from the cancer, it would be pointless if his shoulder's integrity was compromised, for example.

    Starting to sound a lot like Herzlich, who was declared cancer free after four months - didn't come back for a year b/c that happened in early October, not because it took a year to recover. Herzlich's cancer was actually more career threatening than Lindblom's seems to be.

    this is amazing news. So happy for the guy!!!
    ""I think as soon as he gets his last treatments, the worst is over for him."
    Flahr said Lindblom's doctors have told the young forward "it couldn't have gone any better for him.""

    super happy to read that it went even better than anticipated. Just get healthy oscar! Crazy that they said he possibly can come back!

    His immune system needs to be rebuilt at the same time that his body is. Especially in these times.

    I hope that there’s fans in the stands when he has his first game back, because the applause is going to be absolutely mind-numbingly loud. Selfishly, I’d like to be there for it.
