From a trade chip, to Super Bowl champion, to…. NHL analyst? That’s right, Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks will be joining NBC’s Wednesday Night Rivalry crew as the Philadelphia Flyers host the Pittsburgh Penguins.
It’ll be the second time this season that a celebrity will be between the benches for a Flyers game – NASCAR driver Joey Logano joined the Flyers-Capitals broadcast back in January.
“I’m most excited about sitting in the bull pin with the guys and getting to feel that energy,” Kendricks told the Inquirer and the Daily News. “It’s going to be so dope. I’m getting excited just thinking about it.”
I also wouldn’t be surprised if the folks over at Arenavision show Kendricks on the board during the beginning of the game. Anything to get that building up louder for a rivalry will be a positive. Kendricks went to his first Flyers game back in 2016, during a first-round series against the Washington Capitals.
Puck drop is set for 8 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Center.
