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.

John LeClair

LeClairLeClair and was acquired by the Flyers from the Montreal Canadiens on February 9, 1995.  LeClair recorded 25 goals and 24 assists for 37 points in 49 games over the rest of that season, and then went on to produce one of the best four-year stretches of any player in Flyers history by recording 371 points (195 G, 176 A) in 322 games, including consecutive seasons of 50, 51 and 50 goals respectively in the 1995-96, 1996-97 and 1997-98 campaigns. 

 

LeClair is one of only two Flyers, along with Tim Kerr, ever to post 50 or more goals in three or more consecutive seasons.  He led the Flyers in goals for a total of five consecutive seasons – those three, along with 43 and 40 goals, respectively, in 1998-99 and 1999-2000.  LeClair appeared in 90 percent or more of the Flyers’ games in eight of his 10 seasons with the club, scoring at least 23 goals in all of those eight seasons.  He played in all 82 games on five occasions, including three seasons in a row from 1995-98.

 

Over his 10 seasons with the Flyers from 1995-2004, LeClair recorded 333 goals and 310 assists for 643 points in 649 games.  He ranks seventh in scoring on the Flyers all-time list (third among left wings) and is fifth in goals scored, fourth in power play goals (102), and shares third place in hat tricks with Lindros (11).  He was a five-time NHL All-Star and represented Team USA at the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics. 

 

From 1995 through 1997, Lindros and LeClair joined Mikael Renberg to form the Legion of Doom line, one of the most famous lines in Flyers history.  Over those two seasons, the three players combined for 225 goals and 490 points.
