Playing career[edit]

Lindblom's career began with Brynäs IF, where he played on the U16, U18 and U20 junior teams. Beginning with the 2014–15 season, his outstanding play earned him a spot on their professional team who compete in the Swedish Hockey League, the country's top division. Lindblom was selected by Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in the 5th round (163rd overall) of the 2013 KHL Junior Draft. He was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fifth round (138th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

On 30 May 2017, Lindblom was signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.[1] He was then assigned to the Flyers AHL affiliate the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. On 18 January 2018, Lindblom was selected to replace Danick Martel at the 2018 AHL All-Star game.[2] Lindblom was called up to the NHL for the first time on 19 February 2018.[3] He recorded his first NHL point on 17 March 2018, and he scored his first NHL goal the following day against the Washington Capitals.[4] Following the Flyers defeat in Round 1 of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, Lindblom was loaned to the AHL to help the Phantoms with their post-season run.[5]
