Flyers Alumni Marsh

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, originally named the Philadelphia Legends, was created in 1984 and continues to grow.  Alumni can be found playing games around the world and participating in other charitable projects throughout the year.

Thank you to our wonderful alumni and sponsors for making the 2014 Flyers Alumni Golf Invitational a huge success.  The event was held on June 30, 2014 at The Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown, PA.  Players from over four decades spent the day golfing and mingling to raise money for local charities. Proceeds from the event benefit BLOCS (Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools), Flyers Charities, and the Philadelphia Flyers Alumni Association.

Eric Desjardins

Desjardins was acquired by the Flyers from the Montreal Canadiens on February 9, 1995.  Desjardins became one of the highest-scoring defensemen in Flyers history, recording 396 points (93 G, 303 A) over 738 career games to rank second in franchise history among blueliners in goals, assists and points, behind only Mark Howe. 

 

Two of his best seasons came in 1998-99 and 1999-2000, the first of which saw him record 51 points (15 G, 36 A) in just 68 games.  The following year, Desjardins posted 55 points (14 G, 41 A) in 80 games.  He was named a second-team postseason NHL All-Star in both seasons and finished in the top five in Norris Trophy voting in both of those years. 

 

Desjardins was a seven-time Barry Ashbee Award winner as the Flyers’ best defenseman, which is a franchise high, and was a three time NHL All-Star – once with Montreal in 1992 and twice with the Flyers, in 1996 and 2000.  He won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 1998 Winter Olympics.
