Rod Brind'Amour Awaits Flyers Hall of Fame Induction Night



One of the hardest-working players in Philadelphia Flyers franchise history will join the pantheon of team greats when Rod Brind'Amour is inducted on November 23, 2015 as the 24 member of the Flyers' Hall of Fame.


The two-way center, who also periodically played left wing during portions of the mid-1990s, spent 633 regular season games in a Flyers uniform among his career 1,484 games in the NHL.  Brind'Amour produced 235 goals, 366 assists and 601 regular season points as a Flyer, adding 24 goals, 27 assists and 51 points in 57 playoffs games.  


Although Brind'Amour had four seasons in Philadelphia in which he produced 33 or more goals (topping out at 37 goals in 1992-93) and six years with 74 or more points (with a high of 97 points in 1993-94), he was only the team's first line center in his first Flyer season; one year prior to the arrival of Eric Lindros.



A Tribute to Simon Gagne


Earlier this season, the Philadelphia Flyers paid tribute to the careers of Kimmo Timonen and Danny Briere. It is now Simon Gagne's turn. The organization will pay special tribute to the recent retirement of the longtime fan favorite before the opening faceoff of the Flyers' Nov. 17 game at the Wells Fargo Center against the Los Angeles Kings.


Gagne announced his retirement as an active player on Sept. 15, officially bringing to an end a career in which he spent 702 regular season games and 90 playoff games in a Flyers' uniform among the 822 regular season and 109 playoff games he played in his career.
