Halloween season is upon us, and the Philadelphia Flyers are the perfect sports franchise for the holiday. After all, they wear orange and black. They also used to intimidate the opposition when they came to play at the Spectrum and the Wells Fargo Center.
As one of the most storied teams in NHL history, there have been a lot of great players on this team who would strike fear into opposing players. Which ones made our Halloween list of spooky, intimidating players?
RW – Mark Recchi
There have been a lot of great scoring players who have played for a season (Jaromir Jagr) or a career (Claude Giroux). Recchi is, perhaps, one of the most underrated and underappreciated scorers in Flyers history.
His 123 points in 1992-93 is still the team’s all-time record. Not only that, he did that on a team that didn’t make the playoffs. When he hit the ice, it seemed as if he could score at will. Even now, 30 years later, he sits in the top 10 of most offensive categories.
