Heat officially moving to Calgary


Recommended Posts

What has been rumored for a few weeks is now official. The Heat, Flames top farm team, will no longer player in Stockton and will relocate to Calgary effective next season. 

 

No word on where they will play yet and more details to come as per the press release but the farm team is now right in the city for the Flames. 

 

Also not confirmed is that they will stay the "Heat".  Rumors are a name change is being considered.

I'm hearing it will be the Dome where they play.  I know its been questioned, but from mid September to mid April there are 212 days, in that period there are 45 dates for the Flames, 36 for both AHL and Hitmen and 9 Roughnecks, so 126 guaranteed dates leaving about 86 open dates.  As of today we have 3 concerts booked for October-December.  The biggest issues are probably the AHL, Hitmen and Roughnecks schedules are more weekend oriented.  

 

As far as a name, I wonder if they would go with a throwback to an old team Tigers, Centennials, Cowboys, or Wranglers.

I'm hearing the same. Whoever is responsible for scheduling at the dome should be getting a pay raise with this news.  

 

I'm curious to see the price point but if they are kid friendly I could image going to a few games. Would be cool the see the prospects and watch better hockey than the Hitmen. Nothing against the Hitmen of course just the AHL is more skilled. Heat tickets were not very much ($20-40) but it also wouldn't shock me if the increase the price. 

 

I would be a big fan of the Wranglers. The vintage stuff they put out when the Hitmen did that Coral game looked very cool.
