June 20, 1992...Flyers Trade For Eric Lindros

Eric Lindros was originally drafted by the Quebec Nordiques with the first overall pick in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft.
On this date in 1992, the Flyers traded Ron Hextall, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg, Chris Simon, first round picks in the 1993 and 1994 NHL Entry Drafts and $15 million to the Quebec Nordiques in exchange for the rights to center Eric Lindros just prior to the NHL Entry Draft.

Issues involving the trade led to an arbitration hearing involving Quebec, the Flyers and the New York Rangers. Arbitrator Larry Bertuzzi awarded the Flyers the rights to Lindros on June 30.

In addition to making the trade, the Flyers also selected 10 players in the draft. Of the 10 players selected, only left wing/defenseman Jason Bowen played for the Flyers. He appeared in 73 regular season games over five seasons (1992-93 through 1996-97).
