Good morning Flames fans. August long weekend hopefully means many of you get to sleep in a little bit on a Saturday morning.
Today’s roundup starts with a correction to an article I posted last night. Originally the article written about the Calgary Flames re-located AHL team included three prospects I figured would start with Adirondack. I have since been politely corrected about Morgan Klimchuk’s eligibility to play in the AHL. The article is now about two Calgary Flame prospects who I figure will start with Adirondack. As I am (admittedly) new to the Calgary Flames as a fan, starting on Tuesday August 5th, I will begin a series called “Re-Introducing the Calgary Flames”. Hopefully the great fans of Calgary, will continue to politely help me through this learning curve.
Yesterday’s “hot start” included a poll asking “Which two Calgary Flame offensive prospects will be here Opening Day and beyond?” Johnny Gaudreau and Sven Baertschi were the top two vote getters.
T.J. Galiardi signed a one-year, two-way contract yesterday with the Winnipeg Jets. Since reading that news, I have had the following song stuck in my head.
Lastly this morning, NHL.com has commenced their 30 teams in 30 days preview. Here is a tweet showing the entire schedule for the month of August. The Calgary Flames will be previewed on August 25th.
