Flyers surprise 104-year-old fan for her birthday

Monday July 28th, 2014

Helen Moser is more than twice as old as the Philadelphia Flyers. At 104 years old, Moser has been a fan since the team joined the NHL in 1967. For her 104th birthday, her retirement home threw a Flyers-themed party, and a surprise guest showed up. Bob Kelly, who won two Stanley Cups with the team, stopped by to wish Moser well and present her with a custom Flyers jersey. 

The best moment has to be when Kelly let Moser try on his 1975 Stanley Cup ring and she teared up. Maybe because it was the last Cup the Flyers won.
