On Sunday, the Calgary Flames began their pre-season schedule with a 10-0 rout over the Vancouver Canucks. On Monday, the Flames kick things up a notch by playing one-quarter of their exhibition schedule in a single night. It’s the annual split squad night, where they play two games – one in Seattle and one in Calgary – against the Seattle Kraken!

Flames players to watch: Reigning AHL MVP Wolf is obviously one, as are the likes of Pelletier and Zary. But here’s one for you: Stromgren. He’s stood out in camp sessions with his size and mobility, and he was pretty effective in Penticton. He might surprise some folks.
