PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

The Philadelphia Flyers are one of the NHL’s iconic franchises. The team's blue-collar style of play and tireless work ethic has captured the hearts of Philadelphians over its 51 years of existence. Meanwhile, the franchise has also been one of the NHL's most successful, with the league's second-best all-time winning percentage, 36 playoff appearances, two Stanley Cup championships and eight overall appearances in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Flyers were established in 1967 when Ed Snider brought an NHL franchise to Philadelphia as part of the league's first expansion. Snider was also the driving force behind the construction of the Spectrum, the Flyers' first home arena. In 1974, Snider created Spectacor as the management company to oversee the Flyers and the Spectrum. In 1996, Snider joined forces with Comcast Corporation to create Comcast Spectacor. The entities that were initially part of the new venture included ownership and operation of the Flyers, the Spectrum, the Wells Fargo Center and Comcast SportsNet. 

Currently, the team features a very young core group of players and a steady development plan for prospects, ensuring that the Flyers are poised to remain in the upper echelon of the NHL for many years to come.
