Flyers' Oskar Lindblom 'so thankful' for all the support; how to buy 'Oskar Strong' shirts

On Tuesday night, after fans beautifully showed their support for Oskar Lindblom, the team's 23-year-old forward who has been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, Flyers captain Claude Giroux said it best.

“I’ve been here for 11, 12 years now and kind of know the fans," Giroux said. "They’re great fans, they support their players.

“It’s not only us in the locker room that’s behind him and the coaches, it’s the whole city.”

Lindblom, who was at the Wells Fargo Center for Tuesday night's 4-1 win over the Ducks, has been touched by all the support and sent a message of gratitude in an Instagram post Thursday.

The Flyers are wearing special "Oskar Strong" shirts Thursday night and you can bet you'll see them worn throughout the season.

The shirts can be purchased at BiscuitTees.com, with all proceeds benefiting the NHL's "Hockey Fights Cancer" initiative.

Flyers Charities are also selling light purple "Oskar Strong" shirts, with all proceeds benefiting Ewing’s sarcoma research at the Sarcoma Foundation of America.

Kevin Hayes inspired beer to be released by Yards Brewing Company

Kevin Hayes inspired beer to be released by Yards Brewing Company

There’s no question that Kevin Hayes has assimilated well to Philadelphia.

Since signing a seven-year, $50 million deal this past offseason, the 27-year-old has endeared himself to Flyers fans. From being Gritty’s roommate to his fun nicknames to playing hockey well and helping — hopefully — lead the Flyers back to the playoffs, Hayes has quickly become a fan favorite.

The next logical step: A beer made and named in his honor.

Yards Brewing Company is releasing “Big Hayes-y 13” on Friday.

The beer is a double New England style IPA. For those unfamiliar with the style, New Englands are traditionally known for being juicy and hazy — hence the name — unlike traditional IPAs which have more hoppy bitterness. It's also an ode to Hayes' roots being from Dorchester, Massachusetts, and starring at Boston College.

The Flyers take on the Rangers Friday night so you can drink it while New York second guesses letting Hayes get away. Seems like the perfect beer to suck down while watching Hayes kill penalties and score goals with fantastic cellys.
