Last night, the Calgary Flames got the YoungStars event off to a wonderful start. How? Well, they beat the Oilers by a 5-2 score and largely out-played their neighbours to the north. The challenge for the boys in red will be to continue that momentum one day later, as they face the Vancouver Canucks prospects at 8:30pm MT. While you can experience the action via a stream from the Flames website (or on Sportsnet 960 The Fan), bear in mind that the BC crowd will probably be cheering on the Canucks.
In other words, the boys are in enemy territory and will have to fight their way out.

1. Feaster speaks
Just ahead of today's kickoff of the annual (except for last year because, you know, greed) Penticton tournament, Jay Feaster had his first bit of major media availability in a while and, well, it didn't disappoint. That is, if you like Jay Feaster saying hilarious and dumb things. Which I happen to like rather a lot.

Hockey's back, in the form of the Battle of Alberta from Penticton's YoungStars Tournament! The puck drops at 5pm MT and can be experienced via webcast from the Flames website.
Can the Flames start off the prospects tournament on a winning note against the team their kids have (hopefully) been conditioned to hate the most? We can only hope.

After a long, arduous, summer, September is once again upon us and that means meaningful hockey is just around the corner. For your Calgary Flames, the road to the regular season begins with the annual Youngstars Tournament in beautiful Penticton, BC. The folks of JetsNation are in attendance this week and will be sending us regular interviews and scouting reports first hand.
Anyways, four western Canadian teams, and San Jose, gather to see whose rookies reign supreme. Here's a look at the five teams and what fans can expect beginning later this week.

Rumour broke out BUT A FEW MINUTES AGO from former Calgary media scribe Bruce Dowbiggin that it seems like your Calgary Flames are set to announce the hiring of former Leafs GM/current curmudgeon Brian Burke:
