We saw Oskar Lindblom provide smiles in the Flyers' team picture taken during March.

We saw him receive a standing ovation at the Wells Fargo Center in January.

And during times like these, we saw awesome support for Lindblom in a virtual way Friday.

For a series on NHL.com, the league's official Twitter account sent out a question asking who is the best player to currently wear No. 23 in the game, with five options: Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Sean Monahan, Dustin Brown, Adam Fox and Sam Reinhart.

Flyers fans flooded the responses with love for Lindblom, the team's forward who is battling Ewing’s sarcoma and wears No. 23. The Flyers' official Twitter account had an awesome tweet, as well.

Lindblom was diagnosed in mid-December. In late April, head coach Alain Vigneault said Lindblom was working out.

"His treatments are doing well," Vigneault said. "I’ve been texting him more on a regular basis since the beginning. We’ll have some news when the season starts again.”

And Philly will continue to show love for its 23-year-old No. 23.
