It wasn't that long ago Kris Russell was more of an afterthought than anything else. He'd found a regular role with the Columbus Blue Jackets as a bottom pairing defenceman; only to be traded to the St. Louis Blues and play even less, failing to be a regular in the lineup.
He was subsequently traded to the Flames for a fifth round pick for the next year's draft: not nothing, but pretty close to it.
Then he became a top four defenceman in Calgary, and is now best known as the guy who will block everything and anything.

Today's the first official day of 2015-16 Calgary Flames training camp over at Winsport.
The day kicks off with a short practice for Group A (Team McDonald) at 9am, followed by Group A (McDonald) taking on Group B (Nieuwendyk) in a short scrimmage at 10. That's followed by a practice for Group B at 11 and a practice for Group C (McCrimmon) at noon. The McCrimmon practice is on Arena C, while everything else is at the Joan Snyder rink (Arena B) at Winsport. For convenience, they're right beside each other.
Who's on the two scrimmage teams, you may ask?
