Flyers To Retire Eric Lindros’ 88 Jersey

The Philadelphia Flyers will ensure that nobody ever wears #88 for the team again.

The Flyers will retire Eric Lindros’ jersey, number 88, on January 18th, 2018 prior to their game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team officially announced on Monday.

“I am deeply humbled and honored that the Flyers are going to retire my jersey,” said Lindros.

“I am so thankful to the entire organization for this incredible recognition. I look forward to sharing this moment with my family, friends, teammates, and of course Flyers fans, who mean so much to me.”

Lindros’ jersey joins those of Bernie Parent, Mark Howe, Barry Ashebee, Bill Barber and Bobby Clarke in the rafters.

“Eric has made an incredible and lasting impact on the Flyers organization, our fans, and the game of hockey as a whole,” Flyers President Paul Holmgren said.

“We could not be more proud to raise his number 88 to the rafters. We look forward to what is anticipated to be a historic night for the Flyers.”
