Playing career[edit | edit source]
Selected in 1970 by the Philadelphia Flyers, Kelly was an aggressive left-winger who would become a member of the famous "Broad Street Bullies" and helped guide the Flyers to their two consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and 1975. Along with teammate Dave Schultz, Kelly was one of the team's top enforcers.
Kelly scored the 1975 cup winning goal at 11 seconds into the 3rd period of game 6. On tremendous individual effort he stole the puck behind the Sabres' net, and was able to slide the puck under goalie Roger Crozier.
He is now the Flyers' ambassador of hockey.
