Scott Hartnell Says “THANK YOU” To Philadelphia and Flyers Fans


To All the Flyers fans that have supported me through my seven seasons in Philadelphia,

            First off, I want to thank you all for your passion and loyalty to your team. The atmosphere you create in the Wells Fargo Center has inspired many goals and wins that could not have happened without you. I will never forget the time I spent in the amazing city of Philadelphia and it is all because of you guys.

            This is a bittersweet situation for me. As much as I will miss Philly, I am eager to start a new adventure in Columbus. The organization is in an exciting place and I am glad that I will be able to help with their growth.

            As for my charitable efforts, the #hartnelldown Foundation will still have a partnership with the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation and continue our efforts to help kids in Philadelphia play hockey. We will also be expanding our efforts to benefit those in the Columbus area as well. I hope that you will continue your amazing support for the foundation even though I am no longer donning the Orange and Black.

            Thanks again Flyers fans and I will see you  November 14 when I come back to Philly.


Your Friend, Scott Hartnell

    Whether you see this or not, Mr Hartnell, it doesn’t matter.
    I just want to thank you for your class, and leadership. I know trades are part of the “business of sports, but Philadelphia the CITY AND Flyers the TEAM will both be poorer in your absence.
    Best of luck to you and your family
