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.
A ‘Russian Rocket’, a ‘Sudden’ Swede, a Burnaby Joe, and the John Stockton of hockey make up the 2012 class of Hockey Hall of Fame inductees.
Pavel Bure, Mats Sundin, Joe Sakic, and Adam Oates, were all elected into the Hall Tuesday.

The Leafs qualified a number of free agents on Monday, in order to retain their rights with the organization. Luke Schenn, Tyler Bozak, Clarke MacArthur, Matt Lashoff, Luca Caputi, Ben Scrivens and Greg Scott all remain with the club, while Brayden Irwin, Christian Hanson and Fabian Brunnstrom did not receive offers. C-Mac was plucked from the Thrashers organization last year when the club balked at his arbitration award. While he appears to be headed for arbitration once again, it is still possible that an accord can be reached both pre-and post-judgement. His work on the Grabo line makes him an attractive ...
