Biography

After several games with the Ottawa Junior Senators of the Central Junior Hockey League, defenseman Chris Therien took his ice hockey to Northwood Prep High School in 1989 and played on their team, the Huskies, for one year. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1990, but opted to attend Providence College in Rhode Island and spend three years with their squad first. Upon his graduation he joined the Canadian national team and soon attended the 1994 Winter Olympics, where he suited up for five matches and took home a silver medal. He spent the remainder of the 1993-1994 season with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears, and then split the following one between the Bears and the Flyers. He then spent the next decade skating exclusively with the Flyers, until he was sent to the American Hockey League’s Philadelphia Phantoms, and then the NHL’s Dallas Stars, during the 2003-2004 season. After only 11 games with the team, he resurfaced with the Flyers following the 2004-2005 NHL lockout, and played out his final season for a total of 753 games with the squad, which set a club record for a defenseman. Since his 2006 retirement, catalyzed by a head injury, he has worked as a radio and television color commentator, most recently for the Flyers’ radio broadcasts.
