The Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame is a symbolization of some of the most storied and beloved characters in the history of the franchise. Induction into the prestigious club is far and away the highest honor that any person can obtain in the Flyers organization for the hard work, dedication, effort, and excellence they put into being a part of this storied franchise.

Since the franchise’s inception in 1967, only 25 members have been inducted. The club includes 20 players along with other figures. They include team founder and former owner Ed Snider, former team president Joe Scott, former head coach Fred Shero, former general manager and head coach Keith Allen, and former broadcaster Gene Hart.

The inaugural members of the Flyers Hall of Fame were franchise legends Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent back in 1988, and the last induction was for Jimmy Watson in 2016. Today, we’ll take a look at twelve players that have cases to join this elusive club in the future.

The criteria is limited to retired players only, so players like Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Sean Couturier will not be making appearances on this list even though they’ll be more than worthy of the honor when they finally hang up their skates.

I also understand that not everyone may agree with this list and it is purely up to interpretation, and everyone is entitled to their opinions. For the record, these are players that have cases to potentially be a part of the Flyers Hall of Fame, not players that I think should one hundred percent be in.
