How awesome would this be?

Reddit user u/arahn17 came up with a heartwarming idea to vote for Oskar Lindblom as the Metropolitan Division All-Star Game captain.

You can do so by clicking here, scrolling down and searching Lindblom's name to place a vote. The 2020 NHL All-Star Game is on Jan. 25 in St. Louis.

The unofficial campaign is another beautiful form of support for Lindblom, a 23-year-old forward on the Flyers who has been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that occurs in bones or in the soft tissue around the bones.

Flyers teammates, fans and the NHL have already started rallying behind Lindblom (see story).

“He’s a fighter, he’ll get through this," Ivan Provorov said to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Taryn Hatcher on Saturday (see story). "We love him, we’ll support him all the way and he knows we’re here for him. He’s not fighting this fight alone and we’ll do everything that we can to make sure he feels that there’s all people supporting him.”

Having the votes pile up for Lindblom is a touching way to do it.
