2019 Fantasy Outlook
A slow start really hampered his totals, but Lindblom ended the 2018-19 campaign on a high note, scoring 12 goals and 18 points in 34 games after the All-Star break to bring his numbers to a respectable level -- 17 goals and 33 points with a minus-9 rating in 81 games. The left-handed Swede also chipped in defensively, registering 68 hits and 52 blocked shots. He's only 22, and the late-season surge is certainly encouraging, but owners probably shouldn't expect him to break out in a big way in 2019-20. Lindblom only posted one 20-goal campaign during his juniors career, and didn't exactly excel in the AHL, notching a respectable yet unspectacular 16 goals and 34 points in 54 minor-league games two seasons ago. It's possible that he'll be able crack the 20-goal mark if given some playing time in Philadelphia's top-six, but Lindblom will likely play left wing on the Flyers' third line this season, capping his fantasy value.

Self-quarantining in Toronto
LWPhiladelphia Flyers
Illness
August 11, 2020
Lindblom (illness) has entered the bubble in Toronto and is currently going through the NHL's mandatory self-quarantine, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Lindblom hasn't practiced with the Flyers since he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, so he'll undoubtedly need some time to get back up to speed following his self-quarantine, but the fact that he may be available at all during these playoffs is miraculous in and of itself. The 23-year-old winger picked up 11 goals and 18 points through the first 30 games of the regular season before being diagnosed with his illness.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
With the emergence of Travis Konecny and Nolan Patrick, it's easy to forget about Lindblom, but wise owners won't make that mistake. The soon-to-be 22-year-old is an offensive talent who has a knack for getting to the areas needed to score. In 23 NHL games last season, he registered just two goals and six points, but Lindblom recorded 18 goals and 41 points in 62 AHL games over the last two campaigns. He figures to play a third-line role this season alongside center Jordan Weal and Wayne Simmonds. If he can find a way to crack the top six, he'd make for an interesting pickup in standard leagues, but for now, Lindblom is better suited for use in deeper settings or dynasty formats.
Lindblom's a fifth-round pick from the 2014 draft who's raised his profile with a 47-point showing over 52 games with Brynas of the Swedish Hockey League last season. Now 20 years old and with his entry-level deal in hand, Lindblom is expected to be on the Flyers' roster come Opening Night, when he'll likely occupy a third-line role alongside No. 2 overall pick Nolan Patrick. If the two prospects find chemistry, they could give their club a major boost by serving as a third capable scoring line; it’s all projection right now, but the Swedish winger’s success in pro hockey overseas is promising, so as long as he adjusts well to the smaller rinks in North America, Lindblom’s future looks bright.
