Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Al Hill
Al Hill was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers in Ocotober 1976 and made his NHL debut with the Broad Street Bullies during the 1976-77 season. And what a debut he had. On February 14, 1977, Hill set an NHL record by recording five points on a pair of goals and three assists in his first big-league game. He played nine games for the Flyers that year and 63 for the Springfield Indians.

The following season, he made three appearances as a Flyer; but his 91 points in 80 games for the Maine Mariners earned him a spot on the AHL First All-Star team in 1978. In 1978-79, Hill divided his time between Maine and Philadelphia but came back as a full- time member of the Flyers from 1979-80 through 1981-82. He was signed as a free agent by Edmonton in late1982 and resigned by the Flyers in 1984, though he remained in the AHL from 1982-83 through 1986-87, when he made a return appearance with the Flyers for seven games.

In 1987-88 he again divided his time between Philadelphia and Hershey, and he finished his playing career after a full season with the Bears in 1988-89.
