Retired numbersEdit

Bill Barber plaque hhof

Bill Barber is one of only three Flyers to be a member of both the Hockey Hall of Fame and Flyers Hall of Fame, and have his number retired.

The Flyers have retired four of their jersey numbers and also taken a number out of circulation. Barry Ashbee, Bernie Parent, and Bobby Clarke had their numbers retired less than a year after retiring while Bill Barber's number 7 was retired six years after his retirement but only after Brian Dobbin, Craig Fisher, and Jay Wells had worn it in at least one game.[5] Following Pelle Lindbergh's death on November 11, 1985, his number 31 was removed from circulation. Though it is not officially retired, no Flyers player has worn the number 31 since.[6] Also out of circulation is the number 99 which was retired league-wide for Wayne Gretzky on February 6, 2000. Gretzky did not play for the Flyers during his 20-year NHL career and no Flyers player had ever worn the number 99 prior to its retirement.[7]

First awarded following the 1974–75 season, the Barry Ashbee Trophy is given out to the "team's most outstanding defenseman" as determined by a panel vote consisting of local sportscasters and sportswriters.[8][9] The trophy is named in honor of Barry Ashbee, an NHL Second Team All-Star and the team's best defenseman during the 1973–74 season who suffered a career-ending eye injury during Game 4 of the 1974 Stanley Cup Semifinals.[10] Eric Desjardins won the trophy seven times during his Flyers career including six in a row his first six seasons with the Flyers. Mark Howe with four wins is the only other Flyer to win the trophy at least three times.

Since then it has been given to the "team's most valuable player" as determined by a panel vote consisting of local sportscasters and sportswriters.[8] Eric Lindros won the trophy four times during his Flyers career while Ron Hextall and Mark Recchi won the trophy three times each.
