Video: Eric Lindros enters Philly Sports Hall of Fame

Eric Lindros played 429 games as a Philadelphia Flyer.

Eric Lindros was inducted into Class IX of the Philly Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday. Lindros spent eight seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, scoring at least 40 goals four times in that span. He was a six-time All-Star, and won the Hart Trophy in 1994-95.

In addition to Lindros, many others were honored on Thursday. That list includes: Doug Collins, Wali Jones, Joe Klecko, Tommy Thompson, Maxie Baughn, Debbie Black, Gertrude Dunn, Mike Piazza, Eddie Plank, Johnny Callison, Johnny McDermott, Harold Johnson, Horace Ashenfelter, and Dan Baker (Legacy of Excellence).

Lindros played his last game for Philadelphia in the 2000 NHL Playoffs. In the 2000-01 seaon, contract disputes and concussion symptoms kept him out of action for the whole year. He was finally traded to the New York Rangers in Aug. 2001, by which time most fans had an unfavorable view of Lindros because of his in-fighting with the organization.
