The ABC family comedy "The Goldbergs" will dedicate an upcoming episode to the memory of Philadelphia Flyers founding owner and chairman Ed Snider, who died April 11.

The episode dedicated to Snider, which is titled "Big Orange," will debut May 11 at 8:30 p.m. ET. In the show, middle son Barry has his favorite orange Flyers T-shirt stolen by his mother and girlfriend. Barry enlists his older sister Erica and younger brother Adam to help him investigate. 

The show is written and produced by Adam Goldberg and is a semi-autobiographical account of his family and upbringing in Jenkintown, Pa., a Philadelphia suburb. Goldberg is a Flyers fan and the show frequently has featured the team's logo.
