CALGARY ANNOUNCES ECHL AFFILIATION

Calgary, Alberta – The Calgary Flames announced today that they have reached a one-year affiliation agreement with the Colorado Eagles of the East Coast Hockey League. The Eagles will serve as the "AA" affiliate of the Flames and will provide players to the organization through the Adirondack Flames. The Adirondack Flames are Calgary's primary developmental team in the American Hockey League.

This agreement makes a great deal of sense from both a logistical standpoint and a personnel standpoint," said Eagles president and general manager Chris Stewart. "Exploring a potential affiliation was something that we would only do if it was established and operated as an agreement that was mutually beneficial to both parties involved and the Calgary Flames presented us with exactly that type of an arrangement. The Flames are a first-class organization and they will provide us with the opportunity to develop someof the best young players in the ECHL, while at the same time enhancing our ability to achieve our ultimate goal of competing for a Kelly Cup Championship.

Brad Pascall, Assistant General Manager of the Calgary Flames added, "Colorado is a great organization and it will be a terrific place for our prospects to prosper and develop their skills. The Calgary Flames organization really stresses player development and the addition of Colorado will be a great compliment to our overall developmental process."​
