That trio will replace NHL senior vice president Jim Gregory, Serge Savard, and former Flyers coach Pat Quinn, who all reached the stipulated limit for length of service.
Clarke, now 64, still serves as a Flyers senior vice president. He has not spent much time around the team this season, living mostly in Florida.
"It is a good honor for Clarkie and I'm glad," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said. "It's kind of a secret society there. You don't even know who is on it, and we got a lot of names who are involved at least in this new chapter and that's good for Bob and John Davidson being the head of it. That's fresh blood."
The selection committee will meet on June 23-24 to consider duly nominated candidates for election. To be elected as an "honoured member," a candidate must receive 14 votes out of the 18 available.
Peter Forsberg, Mike Modano, Mark Recchi and Dominik Hasek are just a few of the names the committee will deliberate on for the first time this summer - in addition to the usual suspects such as Lindros (2010 eligible), Jeremy Roenick (2012), Paul Kariya (2013), Rob Blake (2013) and others.
Clarke's coach, Fred Shero, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last fall. Clarke was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1987.
