Lost amidst the hoopla of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s announcement of their latest class, the Philadelphia Flyers have announced who the next members of their Hall of Fame will be.
Jim Watson, a member of the Philadelphia Flyers back-to-back Stanley Cup Championship teams from the 1970’s was chosen. There are many Flyer fans that have called for this induction for years, and the five time All Star and ten year NHL veteran (all with Philadelphia) finished his career with 186 Points and a +295.
The Defenceman is joined by Centre, Rod Brind’Amour who plied his trade In Philadelphia for nine seasons from 1991 to 1999 and would score 601 Points for the team. Brind’Amour was known for his work ethic and gritty play and his lone All Star Game appearance would take place in 1992, while playing for the Flyers.
Brind’Amour’s Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on their home game against the Carolina Hurricanes on November 23, the team where he won his lone Stanley Cup. As for Watson, that ceremony will transpire on the home game in February against the Calgary Flames.
The Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame first began in 1988.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate both Jim Watson and Rod Brind’Amour for entering the Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame.
