It’s been a little while since former Flyers captain Mike Richards has been in the Philadelphia area. More precisely, it was six years ago, when he flew in for an autograph signing at the Plymouth Meeting Mall in January 2018.
He was pretty surprised by the sizable turnout of fans that wanted to meet him, or have a quick chat about “basically, the good old days,” he said.
“It was all positive. Kind of surprising that there wasn’t one negative thing said, but I guess if you’re traveling up to (Plymouth Meeting), you’re not going to drive there just to chirp me,” Richards said.
