Kincade & Salciunas: Weekdays 6am – 10am

The Flyers presented Recchi with a framed jersey from the 1992 NHL preseason, a throwback to the best statistical season of his career.

Philadelphia Flyers Alumni Weekend took place at the Wells Fargo Center from January 26-27 to celebrate the golden anniversary of the first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Mark Recchi entered the Flyers Hall of Fame as the guest of honor before a Saturday matinee against the Boston Bruins.

Flyers Alumni Weekend

Dan Hilferty and Keith Jones joined Recchi in front of the local media on Friday before the Flyers Alumni took on the Bruins Alumni. The new leadership group has consistently emphasized the need to honor the past as part of a transition into a New Era of Orange.

“It’s a quiet confidence to be part of a team, to be part of something special, and frankly that’s who we are in the city of Philadelphia, the region of Philadelphia. People throw out the blue collar line. Well, it’s just people that humbly…go about their business, do it with an eye on being excellent, and do it as a team, as a family.” -Dan Hilferty

The Broad Street Bullies won the hearts of the city of Philadelphia with consecutive Stanley Cups in 1974 and 1975. Their legacy lives on through the words of legendary coach Fred Shero.

“Win today, and we walk together forever.” -Fred ‘The Fog’ Shero.

Flyers Introduced


Lou Nolan introduced the Flyers like he has so many times before. Recchi drew the thunderous applause as the weekend’s guest of honor. Mike Richards also returned to Philadelphia for the first time since his NHL career ended in 2016. The former captain scored a shorthanded goal against the Bruins Alumni.

The franchise has retired just six numbers in its history. Five of the six honorees, all but the late Barry Ashbee, were in attendance. Bobby Clarke, Bill Barber, Bernie Parent, Mark Howe, and Eric Lindros all participated in the weekend ceremonies.

Todd Fedoruk Can Steal Any Show


Todd Fedoruk might not be in franchise Hall of Fame, but the former NHL enforcer turned radio color commentator showed he’s still got it with a great effort for the Flyers Alumni in their 6-2 victory. 

Catch him with Tim Saunders on the 97.5 The Fanatic game broadcasts.

Joe Watson: The Original Flyer


How many 80-year-olds are tough enough to skate against former NHL players half their age? Joe Watson played during the inaugural Flyers season in 1967-68. “The original Flyer” last played in the NHL 45 years ago, but he took the ice one final time.
