The Philadelphia Flyers welcomed a new addition to their NHL lineup in 2018 by introducing the fans to their newest creation, Gritty. Gritty's antics on and off the ice has created a media frenzy throughout the hockey world. The talented yet feisty Gritty finds himself possessing the skating skills and charm that the Philadelphia fans have come to love.
From the Philadelphia Flyers website: His father was a "bully," so naturally he has some of those tendencies - talented but feisty, a fierce competitor, known for his agility given his size. He's loyal but mischievous; the ultimate Flyers fan who loves the orange and black, but is unwelcoming to anyone who opposes his team. Legend has it he earned the name "Gritty" for possessing an attitude so similar to the team he follows.
