Flyers F Lindblom skates with team, recovering from cancer

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Philadelphia Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom skated with team Tuesday in one of the few times he's hit the ice since he was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer.

The 23-year-old Lindblom, a native of Sweden, has been ruled out of play should the NHL season resume. Lindblom said he was down to his final chemotherapy treatments.

Lindblom suffers from Ewing's sarcoma, a cancerous tumor that grows in the bones or in the tissue around bones. He had 11 goals and 18 points in 30 games this season. Lindblom has 30 goals in 134 career games over two-plus seasons with the Flyers.
