Fred Shero to be Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame

Fred Shero, perhaps the most decorated coach in the Philadelphia Flyers' history, was announced as an inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the Builders Category on Tuesday.

Shero led the Flyers to consecutive Stanley Cups in 1974 and 1975, as well as a Finals appearance in 1976. He holds the Flyers record for games coached, wins, and winning percentage.

"I am thrilled to hear that Fred Shero was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame," Flyers' Chairman Ed Snider said. "It's a great day for the Philadelphia Flyers."

Shero's name will always be synonymous with the era of the Broad Street Bullies, and his magical quote "Win today and we walk together forever." His leadership paved the way for the Flyers to be the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup. "The Fog" coached the Flyers for seven seasons between 1971 to 1978.
