NHLThe Philadelphia Flyers will pay tribute to former forwards John LeClair and Eric Lindros this Thursday Nov. 20. The two players will both be inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame.

LeClair and Lindros are the first two of three former players to be inducted this 2014-15 season. Defenceman Éric Desjardins will be inducted on Feb. 19, 2015.

“I’m very excited and very honored,” said LeClair on flyers.nhl.com. “The time I spent in Philadelphia was just terrific, and the experiences I had playing in the city and with the fans were some of the most exciting moments.”

“I am honoured to be inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame, a hall full of diversity,” said Lindros. “What made this news even more special is to hear that I will be entering alongside John who I had the good fortune of playing with for most of my time in Philly. I look forward to seeing old friends and to be back in the Wells Fargo Center alongside the Flyer Faithful.”
