The 1992–93 Philadelphia Flyers season was the Philadelphia Flyers 26th season in the National Hockey League (NHL). The Flyers finished 5th in the Patrick Division and did not qualify for the playoffs.

Off-season[edit | edit source]

The Flyers made a major trade that brought Eric Lindros to Philadelphia.

In June 1992, the Flyers began putting their plan for returning to their place amongst the NHL elite in action, as they won the arbitration battle for 1991 #1 overall pick Eric Lindros over the New York Rangers. It was determined that the Quebec Nordiques had made a deal with the Flyers before making a deal with the Rangers. In order to acquire Lindros' rights, the Flyers parted with six players, trading Steve Duchesne, Ron Hextall, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, the rights to Peter Forsberg, a 1993 first round draft pick, a 1994 first round draft pick, and $15 million to Quebec.

Regular Season[edit | edit source]

The trio of Lindros, Mark Recchi, and Brent Fedyk would form the Crazy Eights line in Lindros' first two years in the league, the eights being the player's jersey numbers (88, 8, and 18 respectively). In 1992–93, Recchi set the franchise record for points in a season with 123 (53 goals, 70 assists) and Lindros scored 41 goals in 61 games. Rod Brind'Amour added 86 points (37 goals, 49 assists) of his own.

Four Flyers would reach the 30-goal plateau[2] and goaltender Tommy Soderstrom would finish with 5 shutouts: second in the NHL only to Ed Belfour of the Chicago Blackhawks.[3]

The Flyers didn't name a replacement captain after Rick Tocchet was traded the previous season and instead chose to go with three alternate captains. After struggling early the Flyers made a run at the playoffs, winning their final eight regular-season games, but came four points short of the last spot. Head coach Bill Dineen was fired at season's end.
