Flyers Announce Roster for Alumni Game \r\nvs. Rangers Alumni on Dec. 31


The Philadelphia Flyers, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, today announced their roster for the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic Alumni Game, to be played on the outdoor ice surface at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday, December 31 at 1 p.m.

“It gives me great pleasure to see so many of our great alumni come back to play in this historic game at Citizens Bark Park," said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman and Flyers founder Ed Snider. "It truly is a remarkable gathering of many of the greatest players to ever wear the orange and black. It will be a thrill for all of us to see these greats back on the ice one more time on December 31. I cannot wait!"
 
“This game will be a celebration of more than 45 years of Philadelphia Flyers hockey, as this alumni team represents nearly every major accomplishment in our history,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “It is a dream come true for Flyers fans everywhere to see many of our greatest players assembled for this once-in-a-lifetime event."
 
The roster represents 41 years of Flyers hockey history, ranging from original Flyer Joe Watson to center Jim Dowd and defenseman Derian Hatcher, both of whom last played for the Flyers in 2007-08.  Six of the franchise’s Stanley Cup finalist squads are represented, including the 1979-80 team, which established a 35-game unbeaten streak that has never been equaled.
 
In terms of on-ice accomplishments, this is one of the most significant gatherings of alumni in Flyers history.  It includes three members of the Hockey Hall of Fame (Bob Clarke, Bill Barber and Mark Howe).  Seven of the franchise’s top eight all-time leading scorers are participating, as well as three of the top five all-time leading scorers among defensemen.  It also includes the top eight players all-time in games played for the Flyers.  
 
The group of players and coaching staff includes 16 individuals who have represented the Flyers at the NHL All-Star Game, with a combined 57 appearances in the All-Star Game or the events that replaced them on two occasions (NHL Challenge Cup in 1979 and Rendezvous ’87).  Those involved in the event who played for the Flyers appeared in a total of 13,831 games for the club, and are responsible for 3,739 goals and 5,939 assists for 9,664 points, along with 15,108 penalty minutes.  That is nearly one-third of all goals (32.5%), assists (31.1%) and points (31.6%) scored in Flyers history.

Tickets for the 2012 NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic Alumni Game are on sale now at Philadelphiaflyers.com.
 
A full line of Flyers Winter Classic merchandise, including the official Winter Classic jersey that the Flyers will wear in the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic on January 2, is available now at the Wells Fargo Center.  Beginning Monday, Nov. 28, the store will feature extended holiday hours of 11 AM to 6PM Monday through Friday.
