The 2015-2016 Flyers Hall of Fame class includes Rod Brind’Amour and Jimmy Watson.

Brind’Amour induction night will be November 23rd before a game against the Hurricanes, who he won the 2006 Stanley Cup with.

Watson’s ceremony will go down February 29th prior to a contest against the Flames.

Jimmy Watson played his entire career (613 games) from 1973-1982 with the Flyers, taking home two Stanley Cup rings in 1974 and 1975.

To his credit, the defenseman had 186 points (38 G, 148 A) and a +295 rating in the NHL, good enough for five all star nods.

Jimmy Watson: “I am absolutely thrilled and humbled by the whole thing. This is a tremendous honor and I am very excited to be a part of the Flyers Hall of Fame. Gosh, it is amazing how it all evolved but here we are and I am extremely proud to be getting inducted. What a wonderful honor.”

Rod the Bod played 633 games from 1991-2000 with Philly, accumulating 601 points (235 G, 366 A).

Rod Brind’Amour: “It was a tremendous honor and privilege to play as long as I did for one of the best franchises in all of sports. To be recognized in this way is hard to put into words but something I will cherish for the rest of my life. I thank the Flyers organization for this tremendous honor.”

Eric Lindros, John LeClair, and Eric Desjardins were last year’s inductees.
