PHILADELPHIA – The daughter of former Flyers' defenseman Joe Watson says a Stanley Cup ring given to her as present has been stolen from her Philadelphia apartment.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports 35-year-old Heidi Watson says the ring commemorating the Flyers' 1974 championship was taken in a burglary at her apartment in the ritzy Rittenhouse Square neighborhood on Monday.
The diamond-encrusted pinkie ring was given to each player's wife to celebrate the Stanley Cup victory. Heidi Watson, a nurse, says her mother gave it to her as a present when she graduated college.
She says the ring is priceless for the family.
Joe Watson played 11 seasons with the team and now works in its marketing department.
