Audio: Eric Lindros Confirms He’ll Play in Alumni Game at Winter Classic

Eric_lindros
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back – at least – 2/3 of the Legion of Doom.

Eric Lindros told Greg Brady and Jim Lang on Fan 590 in Toronto this morning that he will, in fact, play in the Winter Classic:

"Yeah, Paul Holmgren gave me a shout about a month and a half ago, and we talked back and forth a little bit. I was real happy to hear his voice and to get the invitation and yeah, I told him a while back that I’d fly down and have some fun. I haven’t seen Johnny in a little while. I know they’re trying to get in touch with Mikael, I've been trying myself."

 

Last week, Lindros told the Hockey Guys that he spoke with Holmgren, but didn’t confirm his intention to play– he saved that announcement for Toronto radio.

Listen to his announcement after the jump. The full interview is here.

  1. lets just hope for Big E’s sake that Darius Kasparitis isnt playing for the Rangers Alumni..

  2. I just creamed in my pants

  3. This is awesome. The Legion of Doom were pretty much my hockey baptism. They’re the guys I first identified with Flyers hockey as a kid.

  4. ^^
    Yeah I hear Scott Steven’s is looking for a pickup game too… Better bring that special mouth piece of yours.

  5. this is too sweet

  6. Tickets already purchased!!! Can’t wait!!!

  7. Any chance Hextall would suit up?

  8. Big n White!

  9. I’ll believe it when i see it.. there is no doubt that there is still some very bad blood and unhealed wounds between Lindros and the Flyers organization(Ed Snyder). So i woudnt get too excited even though he says hes in.

  10. Fences have been mended, both sides have moved on from it and have made peace with the whole thing. He’s playing.

  11. I’m ready to see the Legion of Dooooom!

  12. I failed to ask this question:
    Did Eric have to clear this with his dad, I mean agent, first?

  13. Has anyone ever been concussed in a charity scrimmage before?

    I’d really like to see Brind’amour come back and play too. But i guess if Big E’s playing they wouldnt want brindy to play. lindros might end up with another concussion. im really curious to see who else they bring back. Neil Little anyone???
