2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lindblom had a red-hot start to the 2019-20 season, racking up 11 goals and 18 points, four of which came on the power play, while skating in a top-six role through the first 30 games of the campaign. The 24-year-old Swede was then diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in mid-December, forcing him to miss the rest of the regular season while receiving treatment before being cleared to return for the final two games of the Flyers' postseason run. Heading into 2020-21, Lindblom is fully healthy, and appears poised to to step into a full-time, top-six role while also seeing time on Philadelphia's second power-play unit. It's hard to predict how Lindblom will perform this season due to his somewhat limited sample size, but a 20-plus goal, 40-plus point pace isn't out of the question, making him worth a look in the later rounds of this year's fantasy drafts.

Suits up in Game 6
LWPhiladelphia Flyers
September 3, 2020
Lindblom (illness) was held off the scoresheet but logged 17:30 of ice time and had two hits in Thursday's 5-4 double-overtime win over the Islanders in Game 6.
ANALYSIS
Lindblom was back in action for the first time since Dec. 7, making his return from a Ewing's sarcoma diagnosis in December. He was immediately placed on the Flyers' power-play unit and played three-and-a-half minutes with the man advantage. Lindblom's stat line Thursday was rather irrelevant; the fact that he was even back in the lineup undoubtedly provided the Flyers with an emotional lift. The 24-year-old had 11 goals in 30 regular-season games prior to falling ill and adds another offensive weapon to the Flyers lineup heading into Game 7 on Saturday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
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.
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.
