Flyers Alumni History

Flyers chairman Ed Snider brought hockey back to Philadelphia in 1967 and a love affair between city and team was born. One of six expansion teams, the Flyers not only won their division in their first season, but eventually became the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup in 1974.

The Flyers Alumni Association (a 501(c)(3) organization) was originally named the Philadelphia Legends. The Association was created in 1984 and continues to grow with membership consisting of national and global former Philadelphia Flyers players.  The Alumni can be found playing games around the world and participating in other charitable projects throughout the year. 

 

Through the years, the Flyers Alumni Association has maintained a tradition of giving back to the Delaware Valley community. Charities and community organizations that have been supported in the past include St. John's Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes South Jersey and Junior Achievement of Delaware.

2017 Holiday Food Drive

On Nov. 17, 2017, the Flyers Alumni teamed with Sysco Foods for our 12th annual food drive to deliver Thanksgiving provisions to the homeless served by St. Francis Inn in Kensington. In December, we will have our annual volunteer day to serve meals to the less fortunate at St. John's Hospice and our yearly holiday toy delivery in conjunction with CityTeam to bring happiness to needy families in Chester, PA.

Alumni Give on Thanksgiving

11/22/12: For the seventh consecutive year, members of the Philadelphia Flyers Alumni participated in an event to support those less fortunate during the Thanksgiving holiday.  Bob “Hound” Kelly and Bill Clement purchased over $1,500 of food with funds donated by the Flyers Alumni Association. They then donated this food to the St. Francis Inn Ministries in Northeast Philadelphia. The Inn has been serving meals to local individuals and families in need every day for over 30 years.
