The Philadelphia Flyers announced the official return of a fan favourite on Friday.
Hockey Hall of Famer Eric Lindros has officially joined the team as an ambassador and he's already got his first assignment as he'll join the "ALL IN Challenge" on the Flyers behalf.
"Few players in Flyers history inspire as much excitement and passion among the fanbase as Eric Lindros, and during this unprecedented time, those positive feelings are exactly what we want to deliver to our fans," said Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations, Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. "This ambassadorship with Eric has been in the works for quite some time, and we made the decision to kick it off right now, not only as a special engagement for our fans, but even more importantly, as an integral way to assist those impacted by COVID-19."
"I look forward to being back with my Flyers family and kicking things off in a way that makes a positive impact during a time of need," said Eric Lindros. "Philadelphia has always been my home away from home and I'm eager to continue connecting with and giving back to the passionate Flyers fan base that has treated me so well over the past two decades."
