Longtime Philadelphia Flyers star Eric Lindros will be inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday, Nov. 8. Lindros will be the eighth Flyer to become a member of the Hall, according to Broad Street Hockey.

Lindros will be among 16 inducted that day, including former MLB catcher Mike Piazza and Phillies/Eagles public address voice Dan Baker, as members of the Hall's Class IX. He'll join Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent, Bill Barber, Fred Shero, the entire 1974/1975 Flyers teams, Hobey Baker, Ron Hextall and Mark Howe as hockey inductees.

The former center played eight seasons in Philadelphia. He played 486 games in that time, scoring 290 goals and dishing out 369 assists for a total of 659 points. Lindros took home the Hart Trophy as the NHL MVP in 1994-95, and awarded the Lester B. Pearson award for the player's MVP the same season. He also appeared in six All-Star games as a member of the Flyers.
