We are officially 22 days away from the Philadelphia Flyers opening night that takes place on October 13th 2022, the Flyers face the New Jersey Devils that night and it will give fans a chance to see what the so-called ''new and improved'' Flyers team will look like. Fans will get the chance to have their first look at newly acquired Flyers Tony DeAngelo, Nic Deslauriers and more.

Let's take a look at his best moments in a Flyers jersey, and also a career summary brought to you by Bleacher Report Philadelphia..

Rick Tocchet was selected in the sixth round of the 1983 entry draft by the Flyers. He made the team in 1984 along with other youngsters like Peter Zezel, Derrick Smith, Dave Brown and Todd Bergen. That team became the youngest in NHL history to qualify for the Stanley Cup Finals.

Tocchet was originally known as a fighter. He only put up 39 points as a rookie but amassed 181 penalty minutes.

He developed his offensive skills and became a very good power forward who could dish out devastating body checks as well as score goals and set up teammates. One time, he scored 3 goals on Martin Brodeur and fought Scott Stevens, check it out below..


He was always a fan favorite from game one for his rugged style of play, but he also became a respected team leader and four-time All-Star.

Twice he scored over 40 goals and recorded over 100 penalty minutes for the Flyers, a rare feat and a testament to Tocchet's perfect balance of aggressive play and goal-scoring ability.

He bounced around the league for a few seasons, winning a Stanley Cup in 1992 with the Pittsburgh Penguins, before returning to the Flyers in 2000.

He was a respected veteran leader and a contributor to the Flyers' deep playoff run in 2000.

He retired as a Flyer during the 2001-2002 season still a fan favorite.
