The Edmonton Mercurys pick D Jimmy Watson. next pmed.

Watson joined the Flyers as a full-time player in 1973 and was able to ease the transition to the National Hockey League by playing in Philadelphia with his older brother, defenseman Joe Watson. Jimmy's solid, physical play and willingness to play a smart, intimidating style made him fit in instantly with the Broad Street Bullies and he was soon a vital component of the Philadelphia club that was a consistent contender in the 1970's. By 1975, Watson was a playing in the All Star game and prior to the 1976 season he was a member of the Canada Cup squad that won the tournament by dispatching the Czechoslovakian team. In 1977 he joined a small group of players that have participated in an All-Star Game with their brothers when both he and Joe represented the Flyers at the mid-season classic.
