Flyers to honour Desjardins before game against Montreal on Thursday

"You play your career and you don't really think of stuff like this," Desjardins said Tuesday. "But when you see people taking the time to put together a nice ceremony like this, it's nice and I'm flattered."

Desjardins retired last August after 11 seasons with the Flyers and six with the Canadiens. The all-star defenceman had 575 points (136-439) in 1,143 regular-season games with the two clubs. He played in three all-star games and won a Stanley Cup with the Habs in 1993, scoring a hat trick in Game 2 against Los Angeles.

He is second on the Flyers' all-time list for defencemen in goals (93), assists (303) and points (396).
