City to honor late Flyers owner Snider with mural

PHILADELPHIA — Flyers founder Ed Snider, who died in 2016, will be honored with a mural in South Philadelphia.

The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation and Mural Arts Philadelphia will dedicate “Snider Hockey: Inspiring Our Youth” on Saturday at 10th and Snyder Avenue. Snider had long said he wanted his youth hockey foundation to become his legacy.

The Flyers won Stanley Cups in 1974 and 1975 under Snider, who was arguably the most influential executive in Philadelphia sports history.

Snider Hockey, which was founded in 2005, has about 3,000 students involved with the program. It targets inner-city boys and girls who otherwise would not have the opportunity to learn to skate or to play ice hockey.

The mural design was created by artist Jared Bader and highlights how Snider Hockey builds lives and unites communities through its on-ice and off-ice initiatives.
