The Flyers had one very special guest skating with them at practice this afternoon. No. 88

Well, holy pucks. The Flyers had a very special guest at their practice this afternoon in Toronto, a guy who used to wear No. 88.

Eric Lindros put on the orange and black and skated with his former team, taking shots on Bob and chatting up the rest of the guys.

Many of the Flyers like Scott Hartnell were totally stoked.

“He’s a big man. I watched a lot of his highlights growing up when he played,” said Scott Hartnell.
“I was excited to be on the same ice and it was pretty cool for all of
the young guys that we have that looked up to him and have him come out
here and skate.”

I think Rev nailed it.

If you’re wondering how Big E skating with the Flyers today came about, Tim Panaccio has that story.
