Philadelphia Flyers founder Ed Snider will be immortalized in the form of a nine-foot bronze statue outside of the Wells Fargo Center, the team announced Thursday.

Snider founded the Flyers in 1967 and owned the franchise until his death in 2016. He witnessed Stanley Cup victories in 1974 and 1975.

The statue will be revealed Oct. 19 prior to a game against the Nashville Predators - on the 50th anniversary of the Flyers' first-ever game.
