When Simon Gagne rejoins the Flyers — presumably Wednesday in time for their contest against the Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center — he will do so as the player with the 10th-most regular season games played in club history.

If he wants to move up that list, he will have to extend his contract, which currently runs out at the end of this season. He is 61 games behind Gary Dornheofer for ninth place and the Orange and Black has just 27 games remaining in this campaign.

Here are the 28 Flyers that have played 500 or more games:
