D – Andre Dupont

Much like the offensive guys, there have been many great Flyers who patrolled the blue line. “The Moose” was a different sort of guy. He could score and he could fight.  As a member of the Bullies teams, he was a physical presence. If he was one the ice at the same time that Schultz was, you were definitely in trouble.

Dupont was more than just a “goon”. He was an All-Star in 1976-77. He also scored the goal with 52 second left in Game 2 of the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals to clinch the win. That goal would help the Flyers win their first Stanley Cup.
