This Date In Flyers History...March 15
March 15, 2001...Mark Howe Inducted Into Flyers Hall of Fame

Howe was the 17th person elected to the Flyers Hall of Fame.
On this date in 2001, Mark Howe was inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame prior to the Flyers-Minnesota Wild game at the First Union Center.

Howe appeared in 594 games during his 10-year Flyers career (1982-83 through 1991-92 seasons), recording 138 goals and 342 assists for 480 points and 323 penalty minutes. His 480 points as a Flyer rank him first among Flyers defensemen and 13th all-time in Flyers history. He is also first all-time among Flyers defensemen in goals (138) and in assists (342). His 342 assists place him eighth on the Flyers’ All-Time List.

Howe holds the team record for most goals (24 in 1985-86) and most points (82 in 1985-86) in a season by a defenseman. He was the recipient of four Barry Ashbee Trophies as the "most outstanding Flyers defenseman"(1982-83 and 1985-86 through 1987-88) and one Bobby Clarke Trophy as the Flyers’ Most Valuable Player (1985-86). While as a member of the Flyers, Howe was named to three First All-Star Teams (1982-83, 1985-86 and 1986-87) and represented the team in four mid-season All-Star competitions (1982-83, 1985-86 through 1987-88). He captured the Emery Edge Award as the player with the best plus/minus rating for the 1985-86 season after finishing the season with a +85 rating. In his career as a Flyer, Howe was a member of teams that captured four Patrick Division Championships and two Wales Conference Championships (1985 and 1987). In 82 Stanley Cup Playoff games as a Flyer, Howe recorded eight goals and 45 assists for 53 points and 30 penalty minutes. Howe was acquired by the Flyers, along with a third round pick in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, from the Hartford Whalers in exchange for Ken Linseman, Greg Adams and a first round choice and a third round choice in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft on August 19, 1982.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Howe played a total of 16 seasons in the NHL with Hartford, the Flyers and Detroit (1979-80 through 1994-95). In 929 career NHL games, Howe registered 197 goals and 545 assists for 742 points and 455 penalty minutes.
