The Two O'Clock Number

Bill Barber's Hall of Fame plaque. He basically looks the same today, actually.

-- The number of Hockey Hall of Famer Bill Barber. He spent his entire 12-year NHL career here as a Philadelphia Flyer, and of course, he won two Stanley Cups here as well. He scored 883 points in those 12 seasons. 

Tonight at the Wells Fargo Center, he'll receive his No. 7 banner that hung for years in the Spectrum. Here's part of what he told the media earlier this week about that ceremony.

I can't thank the Flyers enough for where I am today and being part of it.  I have always been proud to have a longevity of being part of them there for 30 straight years and not having to change teams as a player, which I took a lot of pride in.  I believe in honor and all of the good things that go along with staying with one team.  I was very privileged to be drafted in '72 and come in to Philly and spend my career here.  It's been great.
