Philadelphia Flyers founder Ed Snider will have a street renamed in his honor by the city of Philadelphia on Thursday.

A portion of 11th Street will be named Ed Snider Way as a tribute to Snider, who died from cancer on April 11, 2016.

The section of the street is between Pattison and Terminal avenues, adjacent to the South Philadelphia Sports Complex that houses Wells Fargo Center, home of the Flyers and Philadelphia 76ers, as well as Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, and Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Members of Snider's family and Philadelphia Councilman Kenyatta Johnson are expected to attend the ceremony.
