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.

TODAY IN FLYERS HISTORY: JANUARY 12

Through the 2013-14 season, the Flyers have played 16 games on January 12 in franchise history. The club holds a  record of 8-6-1 with one tie.
 
1975: The California Seals put up an expectedly tough fight thanks to a 46-save effort by goalie Garry Simmons (Philly outshots the Seals, 48-17). A first period goal by Gary Dornhoefer, two assists by Ross Lonsberry and a late third-period goal by Andre "Moose" Dupont are enough for the Flyers to win, 2-1. California's lone goal against Bernie Parent is scored by ex-Flyers forward Al MacAdam.
 
1986: Bob Froese notches a 35-save shutout and the Flyers get goals from familiar sources -- power play tallies by Tim Kerr and Brian Propp and a shorthanded goal by Mark Howe -- to blank  the visiting Calgary Flames, 3-0.  Propp also assists on the Howe goal while Pelle Eklund sets up Kerr's late first period tally.
 
1992: The Flyers recently formed top line of Kevin Dineen (two goals), Rod Brind'Amour (two assists) and Mark Pederson (two assists) spurs a 4-3 home win over the New York Islanders. Philly does all its scoring in the first period, as Rick Tocchet (one goal and one assist) and defenseman Terry Carkner also score. The Flyers hold on over the final 40 minutes as a 4-0 lead shrinks to one goal but is not relinquished entirely.
 
2001: Roman Cechmanek records a 21-save shutout in a 3-0 road win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Ruslan Fedotenko, Dan McGillis and Keith Primeau get the goals with Mark Recchi setting up the first and third ones.
 
2002: The Flyers prevail, 4-2, in an ornery home win over the New York Rangers. Jeremy Roenick, John LeClair (two points), ex-Ranger defenseman Kim Johnsson (two points) and Justin Williams notch one goal apiece while Keith Primeau earns a pair of primary assists. Todd Fedoruk drops the gloves twice, while Donald Brashear and Luke Richardson have one fight apiece. The Philly crowd boos ex-Flyer Eric Lindros every time he touches the puck and razzes him heavily when he picks up a diving penalty late in the second period.  Winning goaltender Roman Cechmanek makes 22 saves.
 
2010: A four-goal explosion in the second period -- featuring a two-point outburst from tenacious checking forward Ian Laperriere (one goal, one assist) --  key a 6-3 Flyers home win over the Dallas Stars. Scott Hartnell, Kimmo Timonen, Claude Giroux, Darroll Powe and Simon Gagne also score for Philly. Dallas gets a pair of goals from agitating forward Steve Ott and one from James Neal.
 
2012: Rookie center Sean Couturier scores a goal for the third straight game -- a streak that will grow to five games -- as the Flyers nip the New York Islanders, 3-2. Scott Hartnell (power play) and Wayne Simmonds also score for the victorious road team, while Sergei Bobrovsky (33 saves) outduels veteran countryman Evgeni Nabokov (19 saves) in goal.
