Former NHL player Brian Propp spent 15 years on the ice breaking records and made the playoffs for 13 of those seasons! He’s taken that desire and drive to win off the ice to succeed as a real estate entrepreneur.
“Try your best—even if you are not that good—and enjoy the game of hockey.” – Brian Propp
Philadelphia Flyers Alumni
Brian got drafted into the National Hockey League in 1979. He shares how happy he is that he played with the Philadelphia Flyers.
“It was nice because we’ve always had good teams in the 80s and we have good stories to tell. But more than that is having good friends that I have met over the years.” – Brian Propp
According to him, he did not have quite a good start. But he had a fantastic experience with his team over the years. They now have a very strong alumni association.
Playing with the Greats
When he was still a rookie player, Brian played with Reggie Leach and Bobby Clarke. As a team, they had a 35 undefeated streak.
“That’s how we grew—we worked by example.” – Brian Propp
He appreciates the leadership in their team. He also got to play against Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux.
The Golden Year
In the 1991 season, Brian passed Bobby Hull for the all-time playoff scoring list. He shares how not a lot of great players get to play in the Stanley Cup or in the playoffs. The achievement meant a lot to him but he also gives credit to his fellow players.
“I was very happy with my career but I wouldn’t have done it without the great players.” – Brian Propp
Now, Brian enjoys spending time with his fellow former hockey players. Philadelphia Flyers is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. They have a lot of activities in store for everyone.
