Calgary starts off the ’13-‘14 campaign with a pair of road games. The season opener is in Washington on Thursday, October 3rd followed by a game in Columbus the following night on Friday, October 4th.

The Flames home opener is against divisional rival Vancouver Canucks on Sunday, October 6th.

Under the new NHL scheduling matrix, Calgary will be in a new division with Anaheim, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose and Vancouver. The Flames will play each divisional opponent five times, with the exception of Anaheim which will be four games. Calgary will play each Western Conference opponent (non-divisional) three times and will play all Eastern Conference opponents twice (once home and once away).

Flames draft Sean Monahan sixth overall

03 Jul

The Flames chose centre Sean Monahan of the Ottawa 67s sixth overall with their first of three picks on Sunday, and then went for two other forwards with later selections.

Calgary used the second of its picks, 22nd overall, on winger Emile Poirier, of Gatineau in the Quebec league. A fast skater, Poirier had 32 goals and 70 points to go with 101 penalty minutes this year.

Finally, at 28, the Flames went for a hometown youngster, choosing Morgan Klimchuk of the Regina Pats. A left winger, he had 36 goals and 76 total points in 2012-2013.

Since it is so hot outside my interest in hockey is next to zero, so why don’t you read what the Flames wrote about themselves.

Oh yeah, in other news the Flames acquired F T.J. Galiardi from San Jose in exchange for fourth-round pick in 2015. Hooray for another third-liner!
