MUST SEE: Former Flyer details emotional last game in orange and black

Few players have had a career more respectable than former Flyers right wing Jakub Voracek. From spending a decade with the Flyers, compiling over 1,000 points, two All-Star appearances, and countless Playoff appearances and thrilling moments, Voracek was a core part of one of the most successful eras in Philadelphia Flyers history.

On April 11, 2021, Voracek took the ice in Philadelphia for the final time in his career as he was traded a few months later to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Cam Atkinson, and later announced his retirement after a short final stint in Columbus.

This past weekend, Voracek appeared on the popular "Nasty Knuckles" podcast hosted by former Flyer Riley Cote, as Voracek gave us his perspective into his emotional, final game as a Philadelphia Flyer.

"I kind've knew I was on the move so that last game was very emotional. We played Jersey at home, the place was rocking and my thoughts were just all over the place. They moved the pairings around and started me with G (Giroux) and Coots (Couturier) for one shift. That game I was just all over the place."

For Voracek, being able to share the line one last time with two guys in Giroux and Couturier who were part of that core with Voracek for so many years was a special moment for Voracek.

In his career with the Flyers, Voracek compiled over 600 points with over 400 assists and over 200 goals. Voracek was a constant force in the Flyers lineup, starting all 82 games in five seasons of his career, and finished top ten in assists twice in his career.

As Voracek settles into retirement, is it time to put him in the Flyers Hall-of-Fame?
