Philadelphia Flyers Chairman Ed Snider joins Commissioner Gary Bettman for 'NHL Hour'
NEW YORK – Ed Snider, Chairman of Comcast-Spectacor and the Philadelphia Flyers, will guest on today's NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman. The show, which encourages fans to call in with questions, airs Thursday nights on NHL.com and on Sirius XM Radio at 6 p.m., ET.  

On Monday, Ed Snider will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame for his contribution to the success of hockey in the U.S. -- and more specifically in Philadelphia -- alongside fellow Class of 2011 members Chris Chelios, Mike Emrick, Gary Suter and Keith Tkachuk.  Snider founded the Flyers in 1966 and remains a driving force in making it one of the most successful franchises in the NHL.

Snider is also committed to growing hockey at the amateur level through his work with the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, which provides unprivileged children in the Philadelphia area with an opportunity to learn to play hockey. The foundation was instrumental in rescuing inner-city ice-skating rinks that had been targeted for closure.  

NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman broadcasts live on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET on NHL.com as well as NHL Home Ice (channel 92 on XM and channel 207 on Sirius Premier - formerly known as "The Best of XM"). The show will re-air on Sirius XM Radio, with archived shows available for download via podcast on NHL.com.

The show encourages fans to call in with questions. To submit questions to NHL Hour call 1-877-NHL-ON-XM (1-877-645-6696).  NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman is a production of NHL Radio.
Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
