The Eliminator returns to Calgary, but this time it isn’t as a clutch playoff performer. This time is more as a crutch to get these under-performers into the playoffs.
Gelinas joins head coach Bob Hartley and fellow assistant coach Jacques Cloutier as the trio that will eventually lead the Flames into the promised land. The post-season.
“I’m happy to be back with the team and the city that I know so well,” said Gelinas, who scored three playoff series-clinching goals in 2004 when the Flames came within a win of claiming the Stanley Cup.“I have so many fond memories of my time as a player in Calgary and my family and I have made it our home ever since. I look forward to contributing to Calgary’s success and being part of a winning team.”
Two words Martin. Keep looking.
