From our friends at CSN Philly:

Flyers chairman Ed Snider has recently completed treatment for cancer, sources have told CSN’s John Clark.

The specific form of cancer has not been disclosed, but according to Comcast-Spectacor spokesman Ike Richman, it’s not life threatening. Snider is doing well, and his condition has not affected his ability to run the organization.

Snider was treated and released from Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Thursday night Snider told’s Tim Panaccio that he feels “great.”

Snider is 81 years old, but still very much involved in the team’s business, as was evident earlier this month when the Flyers re-arranged the front office.

      Who were the two idiots at the time not wishing someone well after Cancer treatments – regardless of what team Ed owns? WTF?

        I meant good to hear he’s doing well you moron. I don’t give a crap what team he owns.

    Now get out of the way and let Hextall run the show, don’t try to make him bend to the “flyer way” that hasn’t worked in 40 years

    Even though I’m a die hard Penguins fan and I can’t stand the Flyers, I’m happy that Ed Snider is going to be okay. Never want to see anyone go through the terrible disease of cancer, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Best wishes from the other side of the state. Life>Hockey.

      “one of the most successful franchises in all of sports”

      words never uttered by a Pens fan about the Flyers franchise before your comment
