We are officially 8 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.
Mark Recchi, a budding superstar when the Flyers landed him in a blockbuster deal that sent Rick Tocchet, Kjell Samuelsson and Ken Wregget to Pittsburgh in 1992.
He was paired with Eric Lindros when the team acquired the center the following season. In 1995 Recchi was dealt in yet another franchise-transforming blockbuster trade to the Montreal Canadiens for John LeClair, Eric Desjardins and Gilbert Dionne.

The Flyers reacquired him in 1999 for Dainus Zubrus, meaning that for a period of time the Flyers had John LeClair, Eric Desjardins and Mark Recchi on their roster in exchange for Dainus Zubrus. Not bad.
He has 627 career Flyers points and scored his 1,000th career point while a member of the team, becoming only the third player to do so in a Flyers uniform behind Bobby Clarke and Darryl Sitler.

After the lost lockout season of 2004-05 the Flyers jettisoned Recchi, figuring he was past his prime, and the team wanted to make room for the likes of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards.
Recchi went on to be an integral part of the Carolina team that won the Stanley Cup in 2006 and the Boston Bruins team that won it in 2011.
