The Kelly Ford Gander Flyers are extremely pleased to announce on Saturday, February 25th we will honour one of the Flyers all-time greats as we retire the number of Ed Philpott.
Born and raised in Gander, Ed Philpott was a product of Gander's minor hockey system. He played on the Gander Junior Flyers and was called up to the Senior team in 1967-68 at age 16. That year he played left wing on a high scoring line with Leo Kane and centre Jacques Allard. Philpott helped the Flyers to their first Herder Memorial Championship in 1969. [Full Story]
