Biographical Info

One of Canada’s greatest players, Bobby Clarke (HHOF ’87) almost wasn’t drafted. Because he was diabetic, many teams feared that his health would be a hindrance to his performance. However, the Philadelphia Flyers took a chance and made sure that he followed a strict diet. By his third year, Clarke scored 81 points and drew the attention of Team Canada. A key motivator during the 1972 Summit Series, Clarke became the leader of the Philadelphia Flyers and led them to consecutive Stanley Cups in 1974 and 1975. Some say that he was a ruffian but Clarke was a goal scorer and one of the best body checkers ever. A three-time Hart Trophy winner (1973, 1974, 1976), Clarke served as the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers from 1994 to 2006, and is currently Senior Vice-President of the team.
