This is reason #256 why hockey is the best sport on the Earth.

Long time Flyers fan passes away and the Flyers represented by Claude Giroux send the family a sympathy letter.


Story: My dad was one of the biggest Flyers fans and would have absolutely loved this. He wasn't even part of the organization and we did't have season tickets.

Somebody must have called and told them about him because we were all amazed to see this arrive today. We had no idea.

And I know he didn't write the letter but for Giroux to sign it means so much to me.

I can't explain just how much hockey meant to him and our relationship. I know the Flyers get a bad rap and we love to fight with our rivals but I figured everyone and anyone who's a hockey fan could appreciate this.

Awesome, just an awesome gesture by the Flyers organization.
