Simmonds' seemingly endless energy and his willingness to grind it out along the boards and in front of his the opponent's net has helped to make him a favorite among Philadelphia Flyers fans. All of the goals he scores only add to his popularity.
Simmonds had 132 goals from 2011-12 to 2015-16, his first five seasons with Philadelphia. That was the 16th most in the NHL during that span. He has solidified himself as one of the game's top power-play threats and been consistently physical too, often finishing with well over 100 hits in a season.
