This Date In Flyers History...June 3
June 3, 1975...Flyers Draft First
Mel Bridgman was captain of the Flyers for two seasons (1979-80 and 1980-81).

On this date in 1975, the Flyers drafted center Mel Bridgman first overall in the NHL Entry Draft.

While playing with the Victoria Cougars of the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League, Bridgman led the league in scoring with 157 points (66G,91A) in 66 regular season games during the 1974-75 season.

The Flyers had acquired the first overall pick via a trade with the Washington Capitals. The Flyers traded center Bill Clement, defenseman Don McLean and their first round pick in the 1975 Amateur Draft to Washington for the Capitals' first round selection.

Bridgeman played seven seasons for the Flyers (1975-76 to 1981-82), recording 323 points (118G,205A) in 462 regular season games. He was traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for defenseman Brad Marsh on November 11, 1981.

Other players selected by the Flyers in the 1975 Amateur Draft include goalie Rick St. Croix, right wing Paul Holmgren and center Viktor Khatulev. Khatulev is recognized as the first Soviet player to be selected in the NHL draft. He never appeared in an NHL game.
