Eric Lindros was inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday night.

The center tallied 290 goals and 369 assists in 486 games with the Flyers, his final days with the team highlighted by a public feud with then-general manager Bob Clarke and his career ultimately cut short by concussions. He said he was motivated by the "passionate fans" of Philadelphia, backed the players in their labor dispute and talked about where the game is with concussions. "Things evolve," Lindros said. "The word concussion was never used [back then]. The game has made some changes. Taking out the red line, I'm not so sure that if I were commissioner I wouldn't oppose it. ... "[Concussions] are being handled better. People are coming out and saying, 'This is how I feel. What can I do to get better?' They are being more up front about it. Teams are taking it far more seriously."

Eric Lindros will officially retire on Thursday according to a report.

It has been speculated for a while now that Lindros would retire, but this makes it official. Unfortunately, injuries befell the superstar early in his career and never allowed the hulking power-forward to reach his true potential. Lindros was the first overall pick in 1991 and went on to win the Hart Memorial Trophy for MVP in 1995. He ends his career with 372 goals and 865 points in only 760 games. He will be assuming the newly created role of Ombudsman for the NHLPA.

Eric Lindros could become the NHL Players' Association's new leader very soon.

Eric Lindros is unsure of his playing future.

Detroit is in the market for one more forward and there may be some interest on the part of the team in signing unrestricted free agent Eric Lindros.

The Wings do not want to spend more than a couple of million on a forward so their chances of signing Peter Forsberg, Alexei Yashin or Brendan Shanahan are quite remote. Other UFAs Anson Carter and Mike Peca don't interest Detroit, so Lindros is a definite possibility. Stay tuned.

Eric Lindros will think about his future in hockey this off-season.

Lindros had another injury-plagued season this year and the 34-year-old could be facing retirement. "It wears on you a lot; it gets depressing," Lindros said. "It's like city traffic, stop and go, stop and go." Lindros looks to be as fed up about all his injuries as do fantasy players who take him in their pools.

Eric Lindros returned to the Dallas lineup on Thursday.

Lindros had missed the last 20 games for the Stars with a groin injury, but he played in 9:46 minutes of action and acquitted himself rather well. It was the first post-season game for Lindros since Scott Stevens hit Lindros with his head down in the 2000 playoffs. Look for Lindros to get back into the lineup on Saturday and perhaps play just a bit more.

Eric Lindros could return to the Dallas lineup as early as Thursday.

Lindros has been out of the lineup since early March, but with the Stars down three games to one, there is no wiggle room left for the Stars. Lindros travelled with the team to Vancouver and if there is any chance that he has recovered enough from the groin injury, he will be in the lineup on Thursday. Lindros is a fraction of the player he was earlier in his career, in fact a very small fraction and should not be counted upon to lead the Stars anywhere.

Eric Lindros practiced with the Dallas Stars on Monday, but did not play in Game 4 on Tuesday.

Lindros, who has been out since early March with a groin injury, is hoping that the Stars can extend their playoff run, enabling him to play, but with Dallas down three games to one in the best-of-seven series, it appears that Lindros's season is over.
