PRINTABLE ALUMNI GAME ROSTERS
Hockey Hall of Fame member Ray Bourque will play in the 2018 Capital BlueCross Alumni Game for the Bears. Bourque is widely considered as one of the best defenders in the history of the National Hockey League, and holds the record for most career goals, assists, and points by a blue liner. The long-time Boston Bruin won the Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defender five times, and claimed the Stanley Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche in 2001. Tonight, Bourque will honor his son Chris by wearing uniform #17.
The Flyers Alumni Association will ice a team that features the famed 'Legion of Doom' line of Hockey Hall of Fame member Eric Lindros, John LeClair, and Mikael Renberg. The aforementioned three players have combined for 2,388 career regular season games in the NHL. Recent stars Danny Briere and Kimmo Timonen will also play, as well as members from the Flyers 1974 and 1975 Stanley Cup Championship teams.
From the Dark Side
Five years ago today marked the alumni game for the 2013 Capital BlueCross AHL Outdoor Classic between the Hershey Bears and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. That game featured Dennis Bonvie representing the Penguins organization. Tonight, Bonvie will be returning to the Chocolate and White for the first time since the 2004-05 season. Bonvie appeared in parts of two season with Hershey and skated in 106 games. He combined for a grand total of 511 penalty minutes.
