Flyers Alumni History

Flyers chairman Ed Snider brought hockey back to Philadelphia in 1967 and a love affair between city and team was born. One of six expansion teams, the Flyers not only won their division in their first season, but eventually became the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup in 1974.

The Flyers Alumni Association (a 501(c)(3) organization) was originally named the Philadelphia Legends. The Association was created in 1984 and continues to grow with membership consisting of national and global former Philadelphia Flyers players.  The Alumni can be found playing games around the world and participating in other charitable projects throughout the year. 


Through the years, the Flyers Alumni Association has maintained a tradition of giving back to the Delaware Valley community. Charities and community organizations that have been supported in the past include St. John's Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes South Jersey and Junior Achievement of Delaware.




President: Brad Marsh
Board Members: Brian Boucher, Todd Fedoruk, Paul Holmgren, Bob Kelly, Don Saleski

Other participating Alumni included Brad Marsh, Todd "Fridge" Fedoruk, Bob "the Hound" Kelly and Flyers Hall of Famers Brian Propp and Joe Watson.


Eric Lindros

Lindros was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Quebec Nordiques in the summer of 1992.  He made his NHL debut that fall in the club’s O1-img 0013ctober 6, 1992 season opener against Pittsburgh, scoring a goal in a 3-3 tie.  It was the first of his 41 goals that season, which established a franchise record for goals scored by a rookie that still stands.  

Lindros was named the 11th captain in Flyers history on September 6, 1994, and at the age of 21 became the youngest player in franchise history to hold the role.  He recorded a 70-point season (29 G, 41 A) in 46 games during the shortened season of 1994-95, which tied for the league lead and earned him the Hart Trophy as the league’s Most Valuable Player, joining Bobby Clarke as the only two Flyers ever to win the award.  He scored a career-high 115 points the following season in 1995-96, which ranks as the fourth-highest single-season total in team history behind only Mark Recchi (123 pts, 1992-93) and Clarke (119 pts, 1975-76 and 116 pts, 1974-75).  Lindros went on to post well above a point-per-game average in each of the next four seasons, never scoring fewer than 27 goals.


Lindros appeared in 486 games for the Flyers over eight seasons, rising to fifth on the club’s all-time scoring list with 290 goals and 369 assists for 659 points.  His career points-per-game average of 1.36 ranks first in franchise history.  Lindros was a six-time NHL All-Star and appeared in three Olympic Games for Team Canada – in 1992 as an amateur and in 1998 and 2002 with other NHL players.  Linros was a great Flyer during his years here.  He won Most Valuable Player for the 1994-95 season and helped the Flyers reach the Stanley Cup Final in 1997.


On the international stage, Lindros has one of the most impressive international resumes of any player to ever represent Canada. He suited up in three World Junior tournaments for Canada (1989-90, 1990-91, 1991-92), serving as captain in 1990-91 and 1991-92, and capturing gold in 1989-90 and 1990-91.  Lindros also represented Canada in three separate Olympic games: 1992 in Albertville, France (silver medal); 1998 in Nagano, Japan (4th place), where he served as Captain; and the 2002 games in Salt Lake City, Utah. In Salt Lake CIty, Lindros contributed to the team that brought the Olympic hockey gold medal back to Canada for the first time in over fifty years.
