The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that former Flyers defenseman and current Flyers marketing executive Joe Watson's wife's 1974 Stanley Cup Championship ring has been stolen from a Rittenhouse Square apartment. The ring was stolen from Watson's daughter, Heidi Watson, who received the ring as a college graduation gift from her mother.
The Flyers issued a championship ring to each player's wife following their first Stanley Cup in 1974.
Watson, who turned 70 last Saturday, played 11 seasons with the 36 goals and 162 goals for 198 points. He anchored the Flyers defense from the beginning as he was an original member of the expansion Flyers in 1967.
