Philly police dog has center ice accident at Philadelphia Flyers game

A Philadelphia police dog had an embarrassing accident at center ice while attending a Philadelphia Flyers game last week.

Well, technically the event happened before the Monday, December 6 game at the Wells Fargo Center, which was a 7-5 loss to the mighty Colorado Avalanche, but it’s still embarrassing for hockey dogs everywhere.

And even if you are a Philly police dog, well, when you have to go, you have to go…

Here at Dog O’Day, we learned of it through the site Uni Watch, which mostly covers uniform trends, but also dabbles in a variety of sports-adjacent happenings.

A Philly police dog had a center ice accident while at a Philadelphia Flyers game last night.

Video of the dog poop incident was taken by TV reporter Jamie Apody.

‘Well….this pretty much sums up the Flyers’ season to date,” ESPN’s Jon Barr commented in his retweet of the video.

That unglamorous occurrence took place while the Flyers were on an eight game losing streak, and they’ve already fired their head coach, which doesn’t exactly spell a playoff appearance at season’s end. However, it might turn into a valuable draft pick, which could either be spent as a future investment or flipped somewhere else in a trade for an established star.

For the 2021-22 NHL season, the Flyers are 10-12-4 through 26 games with 24 points, which puts them seventh in the eight-team Eastern Conference Metro Division.

However, according to Ariel Melendez, site expert at our FanSided Network sister site Broad Street Buzz, there is still plenty of time for things to turn around, as injuries have hit hard early on, and once team chemistry gels together, good things should happen.

In fact, they’re on a two-game winning streak, including a 5-3 triumph over the Arizona Coyotes this past weekend on Saturday night.
