The Hockey Hall of Fame is announcing its inductees today. Four Flyers (for a part of their careers) are on the ballot. Here’s a rundown of the four Flyers on the ballot.
- Chris Pronger. Tallied 698 points in 1,167 career games, was one of the most intimidating players of his era as an elite shut-down defenseman. The only defenseman since 1972 to win the Hart Trophy (2000). And let’s not forget that he led the Flyers to that magical Stanley Cup run in 2o10. He was here from 2009-10 to 2011-12, his career cut short to post concussion syndrome.
- Eric Lindros. Scored better than a point per game (1.14 PPG) in his career, finishing with 372 goals and 493 assists, for 865 points in 760 games. Dominant goal scorer, one of the best power forwards of his era and the 1995 Hart Trophy winner. Drafted #1 by Flyers after trading a king’s ransom for him; with team from 1992-93 to 1999-2000.
- Mark Recchi. Consistency is his middle name, with 1,533 points in 1,652 career games over 22 seasons. Won three Stanley Cup titles with three different teams (1990-91 Pittsburgh Penguins, 2005-06 Carolina Hurricanes, 2010-11 Boston Bruins). Two tours with Flyers, 1991-92 to 1994-95; and from 1998-99 to 2003-04.
- Jeremy Roenick. Nearly a point per game scorer with 513 goals and 703 assists for 1,216 points in 1,363 games. One of the best American-born players of all time and a member of the 500-goal club (513). With the Flyers from 2001-02 to 2003-04.
