The Calgary Stampede can be a challenge of anybody’s temperament and resolve, and so it can be helpful to find indoor activities to recover. Well, the Calgary Flames are happy to provide one today, as they conclude their annual prospect development camp with a scrimmage!
Today’s festivities kick off at 9:30 a.m. at the main arena at Winsport. Be sure to get there early; around 9 a.m. is a good ballpark to find parking and seats.
Full rosters for the scrimmage can be found on the Flames’ site. It’s the only chance of the year to see the college and European prospects in Calgary, as they’ll all be unavailable for training camp in September.
