Mark Recchi inducted into Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame


Recommended Posts

Congratulations go out to two-stint Flyers Alumni winger Mark Recchi for his selection to the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame's Class of 2021. A three-time winner of the Bobby Clarke Trophy as Flyers' MVP, Recchi is one of only six players in franchise history who played at least 100 games as a Flyer to average north of one point per game (1.04). He holds the franchise single-season scoring record with his 123 points (53 goals, 70 assists) in 1992-93.

Although Recchi was well-traveled during his Hockey Hall of Fame career, he spent more games in a Flyers uniform (602 regular season matches) than he did for any of the other five NHL teams for whom he played, including the Pittsburgh Penguins (389 games) and Montreal Canadiens (346 games).

The induction ceremony will take place on Nov. 4, 2021. This year's other inductees: Bill Bradley (football); Bonnie Rosen (lacrosse); Dallas Green (baseball); Gary Smith (sportswriter, legacy of excellence); Jim Katcavage (football); "Kid" Keinath (football/basketball); Larry Foust (basketball); Lew Tendler (boxing); Mike Teti (rowing); Olga Dorfner (swimming); Richard Hamilton (basketball); Seth Joyner (football); Yolanda Laney (basketball); "Zack" Clayton (basketball/boxing); and the 1947 BAA Champion Philadelphia Warriors (team induction).




Just another honor for a player I loved since his rookie season days way back when .....
