The Philadelphia Flyers are a professional ice hockey team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the National Hockey League's (NHL) Eastern Conference. The Flyers were founded in 1967 as one of six expansion teams, increasing the size of the NHL at that time to 12 teams.[1]

Since the franchise was established, the team has won the Stanley Cup two times as league champions in 1974 and 1975, the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl six times – twice as division champions and four times as conference champions – and the Prince of Wales Trophy as conference champions four times. Prior to the Presidents' Trophy first being award in 1985–86, the Flyers led the league in points three times in 1974–75, 1979–80, and 1984–85, but have not led the league in points at the end of the regular season since.

Only Bobby Clarke and Eric Lindros have won regular season most valuable player honors as Flyers. Clarke won the Hart Memorial Trophy three times in 1972–73, 1974–75 and 1975–76 while Lindros won in 1994–95. Both Clarke and Lindros also won the Lester B. Pearson Award, awarded to the most outstanding player as voted by the players and now known as the Ted Lindsay Award, Clarke in 1973–74 and Lindros in 1994–95. Four Flyers players have won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs, twice when the Flyers won the Stanley Cup – Bernie Parent in 1974 and 1975 – and twice when they lost in the finalsReggie Leach in 1976 and Ron Hextall in 1987. Parent and Hextall account for two of the three Flyers goaltenders to win the Vezina Trophy, Parent in 1973–74 and 1974–75, Pelle Lindbergh in 1984–85, and Hextall in 1986–87.

Fifteen people, ten players and five builders, who spent time with the Flyers have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Flyers have inducted twenty people into a team hall of fame since 1988 and five of those inductees have also had their numbers retired.

League awards[edit]

Team trophies[edit]

The Flyers won the Stanley Cup as league champions in back-to-back years during the mid-1970s.[2] They have not won the Cup since despite six return trips to the Stanley Cup Finals. They won the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl six times,[3] twice as West Division champions and four times as Campbell Conference regular season champions. Realignment after the 1980–81 season moved the Flyers to the Wales Conference (known as the Eastern Conference since the 1993–94 season) and they have since won the trophy given to the conference's playoff champion, the Prince of Wales Trophy, four times.[4] The Flyers have never won the Presidents' Trophy which has been given to the team finishing the regular season with the best overall record based on points since the 1985–86 season.[5][6] Prior to the creation of the trophy the Flyers led the league in points three times for the 1974–75, 1979–80, and 1984–85 seasons.

The Flyers have won the Stanley Cup two times.

Individual awards[edit]

Nineteen Flyers players or coaches have received twenty-eight annual individual awards from the league, most occurring during the 1970s and 1980s. The most frequently won awards include the Conn Smythe Trophy, Hart Memorial Trophy, Jack Adams Award, and the Vezina Trophy, each won four times by Flyers players or coaches. Bobby Clarke's three Hart Trophy wins is the most of any Flyers player or coach of one particular award.

A few highly coveted NHL awards have never been won by Flyers players and occasionally they have been on the losing end of some close calls for them. Mark Howe finished as runner-up three times during the 1980s in voting[8] for the James Norris Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to the defenseman who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position.[9] During their rookie seasons in 1972–73 and 1986–87, Bill Barber and Vezina Trophy winner Ron Hextall respectively finished second in voting[8] for the Calder Memorial Trophy, given to the league's most outstanding rookie player.[10] During the 1994–95 season Eric Lindros finished tied for the league's scoring title with Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jaromir Jagr. However, Jagr was awarded the Art Ross Trophy, given to the league's regular season scoring champion,[11] due to the first tiebreaker being the player with the most goals,[11] Jagr having scored 32 goals[12] compared to Lindros' 29.[13]

In the case of the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded to the player who exhibits outstanding sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability,[14] no Flyers player has ever finished in the top three in the voting for it.[8] Due to their history as the Broad Street Bullies during the 1970s it has been suggested the Lady Byng is not an award Flyers players covet.[15] Dave Brown, who was an enforcer with the team during the 1980s and 1990s, went so far as to say the only way he would ever win the award is "if they renamed it the Man Byng."[16]

Bobby Clarke spent his entire Hockey Hall of Fame career with the Flyers, winning three Hart Trophies as league MVP as well as several other awards and honors.
During both of the Flyers two Stanley Cup championship seasons, Bernie Parent won the Vezina Trophy, the Conn Smythe Trophy, and was a season-ending First Team All-Star.

All-Star Game selections[edit]

The National Hockey League All-Star Game is a mid-season exhibition game held annually between many of the top players of each season. Thirty-nine All-Star Games have been held since the Flyers entered the league in 1967, with at least one player chosen to represent the Flyers in each year. The All-Star game has not been held in various years: 1979 and 1987 due to the 1979 Challenge Cup and Rendez-vous '87 series between the NHL and the Soviet national team, respectively, 1995, 2005, and 2013 as a result of labor stoppages, and 2006, 2010, and 2014 because of the Winter Olympic Games.[33] Philadelphia has hosted two All-Star Games. The 29th and 43rd took place at the Spectrum.

Jeremy Roenick played in the All-Star Game during all three of his seasons with the Flyers.
Mike Richards played in his first NHL All-Star Game in 2008.
Danny Briere was one of three Flyers representatives at the 2011 All-Star Game.

Retired numbers[edit]

Mark Howe speaking at the retirement of his number (2) on March 6, 2012.

The Flyers have retired five of their jersey numbers and taken another number out of circulation. Barry Ashbee's number 4 was retired a few months after his death from leukemia.[52] Bernie Parent's number 1 — Parent wore number 30 during his first stint with the Flyers[53] — and Bobby Clarke's number 16 were retired less than a year after retiring while Bill Barber's number 7 and Mark Howe's number 2 were retired shortly after their inductions into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The number 31, last worn by goaltender Pelle Lindbergh, was removed from circulation after Lindbergh's death on November 11, 1985, but it is not officially retired.[54] Also out of circulation is the number 99 which was retired league-wide for Wayne Gretzky on February 6, 2000.[55] Gretzky did not play for the Flyers during his 20-year NHL career and no Flyers player had ever worn the number 99 prior to its retirement.[53]

Team awards[edit]

Barry Ashbee Trophy[edit]

Chris Pronger won the Barry Ashbee Trophy in 2009–10.

First awarded following the 1974–75 season, the Barry Ashbee Trophy is given out to the team's "outstanding defenseman" as determined by a panel vote consisting of local sportscasters and sportswriters.[62] The trophy is named in honor of Barry Ashbee, an NHL Second Team All-Star and the team's best defenseman during the 1973–74 season who suffered a career-ending eye injury during Game 4 of the 1974 Stanley Cup Semifinals.[63] Eric Desjardins won the trophy seven times during his Flyers career including six in a row his first six seasons with the Flyers. Kimmo Timonen with five wins and Mark Howe with four wins are the only other Flyers to win the trophy at least three times.

Bobby Clarke Trophy[edit]

For the Western Hockey League trophy, see Bob Clarke Trophy.
Jakub Voracek won the Bobby Clarke Trophy in 2012–13.

The Flyers unveiled the Bobby Clarke Trophy on November 15, 1984 to honor the retired Bobby Clarke during Bobby Clarke Night at the Spectrum.[64] Clarke was the captain of the Flyers for several seasons, including during the team's two Stanley Cup championship seasons, and was and still is the holder of several Philadelphia Flyers records. Since then it has been given to the "team's most valuable player" as determined by a panel vote consisting of local sportscasters and sportswriters.[62] Eric Lindros won the trophy four times during his Flyers career while Ron Hextall, Mark Recchi, and Claude Giroux have won the trophy three times each.

Gene Hart Memorial Award[edit]

First given out for the 2006–07 season to honor the memory of long-time announcer Gene Hart, the Gene Hart Memorial Award is given to the Flyer "who demonstrated the most “Heart” during the season" as voted on by members of the Philadelphia Flyers Fan Club at their monthly meetings.[62]

Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy[edit]

Braydon Coburn was a co-winner of the Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy in 2007–08.

The Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy is awarded to the "Flyer who has most improved from the previous season, as voted by his teammates."[62] Named to honor the memory of Pelle Lindbergh, a Vezina Trophy winning goaltender with the Flyers who died at the age of 26 on November 11, 1985 following a car crash the day before, the trophy has been given to 21 different players since the 1993–94 season.

Toyota Cup[edit]

First given out following the 2000–01 season, the Toyota Cup is an award given to the player who earns the most points from Star of the Game selections throughout the regular season, "five points for being the First Star, three for Second Star, and one for Third Star."[62] The Tri-State Toyota Dealers sponsor the award and make a donation of $5,000 in the winning player's name to the player's favorite charity.[62] Simon Gagne and Claude Giroux with three wins each are the only multiple time winners of the trophy.

Yanick Dupre Memorial Class Guy Award[edit]

For the American Hockey League award, see Yanick Dupre Memorial Award.
Jaromir Jagr won the Yanick Dupre Memorial Class Guy Award in 2011–12.

The Yanick Dupre Memorial Class Guy Award was first awarded following the 1976–77 season as the Class Guy Award "to the player who best exemplifies a strong rapport with the media."[65] The award was renamed and re-defined in 1999 to honor the memory of Yanick Dupre.[65] Dupre, who played 35 games over parts of three seasons with the Flyers, died on August 16, 1997, at the age of 24 after a 16-month battle with leukemia.[62] It is now given to the "Flyer who best illustrates character, dignity and respect for the sport both on and off the ice" as decided by the Philadelphia chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.[62]
