The Flyers truly are terrific within the community and that continued Wednesday.
Mark Smith, a man with a mental disability who was assaulted in late May on camera by a group of teenagers in Philadelphia, enjoyed a day with the Flyers.
Shayne Gostisbehere and Anthony Stolarz welcomed Smith to Flyers Skate Zone, where he was shown around the facility, hung out in the locker room and was given some Flyers gifts, including his own personalized jersey.
"It was awesome," Gostisbehere said of Smith's visit. "It was good to have in him here, smiling ear to ear. … He really loves his jersey."
Gostisbehere admired Smith.
"Great to see his attitude about it," the Flyers' defenseman said of the incident. "He's just brushing it off and getting back out there, having fun and going on with his life."
And Smith has plans to share his Flyers gear with little kids back home.
He more than deserved this day and is already paying it back to others — incredible.
