The Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday raised Ed Snider’s banner to the rafters at Wells Fargo Center during a pre-game ceremony prior to their home opener.

The legendary founder and Flyers owner passed away in April at the age of 83.

“It’s a special night for everybody that’s going to be involved in it,” goalie Steve Mason told Philly.com.

“This organization is rich in history, and the Flyers are who they are because of Mr. Snider — and it will be nice to see him get the respect he definitely deserves.”
