The Calgary Canucks

Heading into the 2020-2021 season the Flames made a free agent splash signing former Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom and then later teammate Chris Tanev. For this moment we head off the ice and over to social media where hockey fans started calling the Calgary Flames, the Calgary Canucks due in fact to the ex-Vancouver players that Calgary was snagging that offseason. To many people's surprise, Calgary already has a team named the Canucks. Along with replying to people's reactions on Twitter, the Calgary Cancks of the AJHL posted a tweet to help promote their club.

The Calgary Canucks were founded in 1971 (nine seasons before the Flames moved to Calgary) and named themselves after the only NHL club in Western Canada at the time. In recent years, the Canucks updated their team colours from Vancouver Green and Blue to better match the City of Calgary, switching to the Red and Yellow.
