The Flyers have sent Oskar Lindblom to Lehigh Valley (AHL) to make him eligible to play in the AHL playoffs.
Lindblom has been up for the last three games and will be back up with Flyers on Tuesday, but had to go down today to ensure he can play in the AHL playoffs. He had no points in three games with the Flyers, but if his AHL numbers (16G-18A in 54 games) are any indication, he should produce at this level.
