Brian Bickell, who won a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2010, 2013 and 2015 has retired from the NHL after being apart of the Carolina Hurricanes this season. The 31 year old who was born in Orono, Ontario had to retire after being diagnosed with MS.
He came back for the final 2 games of the season to play two final times and last night he did this during the shootout.
The Flyers fans and players were also 100% class as the fans booed every player except for Bickell who received a standing ovation. The players? Well they did this after he scored against their team in a Shootout.
