PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — 88 was inducted into the Hockey Hall Of Fame on Monday night.
Philadelphia Flyers great Eric Lindros gave an emotional speech thanking his family, his wife Kina, his brother Brett, and his teammates — specifically his “Legion of Doom” mates in John LeClair, Mikael Renberg.
“My journey through the hockey world was a roller coaster, and there were times when I was left bitter,” Lindros said. “Kina has taught me balance. She has taught me how to let go of negative feelings. Since the time I started playing pro hockey until today, my life is as good as it’s ever been. I’ve never been happier.”
Flyers senior vice president Bobby Clarke, who had a contentious with Lindros’ parents, says he’s always “liked Eric” and he always got along “pretty good” with Eric.
