PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Flyers will induct Eric Lindros, John LeClair and Eric Desjardins into the Flyers Hall of Fame during the 2014-15 season, according to team president Paul Holmgren.
Lindros and LeClair will be inducted on November 20, while Desjardins will join the group with a ceremony on February 19.
“Desjardins was a seven-time Barry Ashbee Trophy winner as the best Flyers defenseman and a keystone on the blueline that led the Flyers to great success over many years in Philadelphia,” Holmgren said in an announcement on the Flyers website. “Lindros was a great Flyer during his years here. He won the Most Valuable Player for the 1994-95 season and helped the Flyers reach the Stanley Cup Final in 1997. John put together multiple 50-goal seasons. He was a well-respected, hard-nosed left-winger that just knew how to score goals. He had a great career as a Flyer.”
