You can't say Rod Brind'Amour wasn't honest in his opening remarks as he became the 24th member of the Flyers Hall of Fame.
"I am honored and humbled to be here tonight. I didn't know what to expect coming out here," the Flyer forward of nine years said. "It's been 16 years. I wasn't sure you guys were going to remember me. This is Philadelphia and Flyers fans never forget."
How could Flyers fans forget a work-a-holic player like Brind'Amour?
In his nine seasons with the Flyers, he scored 235 goals and added 366 assists and still holds the Flyers record for playing in 484 consecutive games. He was among the top scorers on the team year-in and year-out, and played with a passion that personified Flyers hockey.
