Bob Clarke defined what it meant to be a Philadelphia Flyer. His entire heart and soul went into every shift that he played. - Dave Poulin
BOBBY CLARKE
1972-73 through 1978-79
1982-83 through 1983-84

Drafted 17th overall in the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft, Bobby Clarke made his NHL debut on October 11, 1969. Throughout his 15-year career, and for future generations of Flyers, he is considered the most famous person to wear a Flyers sweater in the history of the franchise.

In his fourth season with the team, Clarke was named captain of the Flyers. He led the team not only back into the playoffs, but to their first playoff series victory in history.

Clarke was often thought of as the backbone of the Philadelphia Flyers and its turnaround from perennial playoff contender to Stanley Cup champion.

In their first trip to the Final in 1974, the Flyers faced off against the powerhouse of the NHL, Bobby Orr and the Boston Bruins. Clarke posted three goals and five points in the series, including the game-winning goal in overtime of Game Two, to help lead the Flyers to a six-game series victory over Boston and give the city of Philadelphia its first championship in 14 years.

In 1975, their second Stanley Cup victory, Clarke again recorded five points (2G,3A) in the Final to send another parade down Broad Street.

The following season, he led the team to its highest win total of 51 games, 36 wins at home and regular season point total of 118, and another trip to the Final.

During his tenure in Philadelphia, Clarke led the team in scoring for eight seasons, including six consecutive times from 1970-71 to 1975-76.

He captained the team to back-to-back Stanley Cup championships, three-consecutive Final appearances and has been a part of the organization for all eight of their Stanley Cup Final appearances - four as a player and three times as general manager in 1985, 1987 and 1997, and most recently as Senior Vice-President in 2010.

He is the Flyers all-time leader in scoring by over 320 points with 1,210 in the regular season and all-time leader in assists (852), shorthanded goals (32) and games played (1,144).

Clarke also owns almost all Flyers playoff records, leading in assists (77), games played (136) and overall scoring with 119 points.

He is the only Flyer to have won the Hart Memorial Trophy on three occasions and is one of four Flyers players to be enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Immediately following his retirement as a player, the Flyers honored their captain by sending to the rafter, his famous number 16 to forever hang above all Flyers - past, present and future.
