Flyers Alumni Fantasy Camp Weekend in Full Swing

Originally published on PhiladelphiaFlyers.com (8-22-15)

Every summer, golf is the name of the game for hockey players, especially those retired from the professional ranks.

And while that is a great day for a great cause every year, the Alumni went even bigger for 2015. So the Flyers legends gathered together and kicked off their first-ever Flyers Alumni Fantasy Camp in Atlantic City on Friday night.

The camp features eight Flyers legends who will instruct, coach and perhaps most importantly, interact off-the-ice with fans who signed up for a weekend of memories and hockey.

LEFT TO RIGHT: Bernie Parent, Joe Watson, Bob Kelly, Ian Laperriere, Dave Schultz, Lou Nolan, Todd Fedoruk, Brian Propp and Andre Dupont.
    

“We’re on the ice with people who love the game. They love the Alumni and they love the game,” said Hall of Fame goaltender Bernie Parent. “They’re all excited to get on the ice and to mingle with the former players and have an association with us. They want to get to know how we practice and do the things that we used to do on the ice.”

Parent is joined by Andre “Moose” Dupont, Todd “Fridge” Fedoruk, Bob “The Hound” Kelly, Dave “The Hammer” Schultz, Joe WatsonBrian Propp as well as current Flyers assistant coach Ian Laperriere, who despite the generation gap, is having just as much fun as some of the fans in attendance.

“You know what, that generation is way before me, but I love it and I have so much respect for all of those guys,” said Laperriere. “They won two Cups and I love just being around them for the stories that they tell.”

Speaking of the fans. Don’t think that they are just locals who drove an hour or less to be a part of this special event. They came from all over the country… and even north of the border.
