Flyers legend Eric Lindros will be doing what once seemed impossible -- he will be donning the Flyers colors once again.
The former Flyers captain will be wearing the Orange and Black during the Flyers alumni game outdoors against the New York Rangers, Lindros told ESPN.com.
The game is set to take place Dec. 31 at Citizens Bank Park -- a couple of days before the annual NHL Winter Classic takes place between the Fly Guys and Rangers.
Lindros was the face of the Flyers for most of the 90s leading the team to three Conference Finals and a Stanley Cup Final before injuries, off-the-ice tensions and a lost 2000-01 season due to concussion and a contract dispute led to his unceremonious trade to the rival Rangers.
Lindros could have played for either the Flyers or Rangers but he made a name for himself with the Flyers -- six All-Star games, posting 659 points and scoring 290 goals in eight seasons with the Flyers -- so the Orange and Black made the most sense for Lindros.

The Flyers placed him on LTIR and called up forward Zac Rinaldo and defenseman Erik Gustafsson.It is the second injury of the...
I have watched back-to-back games that were complete and total crap. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I expect the Philadelphia Flyers to come out and win every game, that would be unreasonable and insane. At this point, I’d settle for some consistency.
So far, this team has been anything BUT consistent. There have been flashes of the good stuff that we,...

Is it pretty safe to call yesterday one of the more ridiculous sporting days of 2011? In hockey, you had your usual wild finishes, but a seventeen-goal game between Winnipeg and Philadelphia stole the show. In college football, Case Keenum threw for nine - again, nine - touchdowns in a single game.
And, that baseball game? Unreal. Can...
