Our long and arduous work in progress of ranking the top fifty players for every North American sports team is underway, but after that is completed we will then take a look how each franchise honors their own in terms of respective franchise halls of fame, ring of honors, retired numbers and statues.
As such it is noteworthy to us that the Philadelphia Flyers officially inducted former forward, Rod Brind’Amour to their franchise’s Hall of Fame.
Brind’Amour played nine seasons and suited up for 633 Games in Philadelphia, scoring 601 Points, which is in the top ten in franchise history. He would also score another 51 Points for Philadelphia in the playoffs and was a big part of the Flyers 1997 Stanley Cup appearance. He also holds the team record for the most consecutive games played with 484 and would represent the team at the All Star Game in 1992.
While he put up good numbers in Philadelphia, a trade to Carolina would see Brind’Amour win the Stanley Cup and the Frank J. Selke Trophy twice as the NHL’s top defensive forward.
Brind’Amour is ranked #52 on our current Notinhalloffame Hockey Hall of Fame countdown.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Rod Brind’Amour and the Philadelphia Flyers at this time.
