Wayne Simmonds does it all for the Philadelphia Flyers – scores, fights, checks.
Now add one more thing to the lanky, but strong forward’s profile: fashion model.
Simmonds, along with fellow forward Jakub Voracek, were tapped to show off the jersey the Flyers will wear when they face the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 2017 Coors Light Stadium Series game on February 25, 2017, at Heinz Field, home of the National Football League’s Pittsburgh Steelers.
Simmonds tops the Flyers in goals with 15. He also has 11 assists for 26 overall points in 29 games. Voracek leads the team in scoring with 10 goals, 18 assists for 28 points in 29 games for the Orange and Black.
Jerseys designed for the NHL’s outdoor games have been hit or miss over the years.
The Flyers appear to have taken a line from the classic film “Passenger 57” to heart in creating a mostly black uni with the orange stripes on the sleeves and bottom, and an orange nameplate with black lettering on the back.
