    "We are deeply saddened by the tragic events that have occurred in the
    United States this week," said Flames President & CEO Ken King. "With the
    postponement of our pre-season games this weekend, we believe that it is
    important we use this time to contribute to the relief efforts."

    The game will be played on Sunday, September 16th beginning 2:00 PM at the
    Pengrowth Saddledome. There will be no required admission, however, fans are

    open at 1:00 PM. Following the game, all Flames players will be available on
    the Saddledome concourse for an autograph session.

    "The intra-squad games during training camp have been very spirited and
    competitive so far," said Flames Head Coach Greg Gilbert. "The game will
    provide fans with the chance to see our players in action for the first time
    as they compete for positions in the Flames organization."

    "Calgarians' response to the people affected by this disaster has been
    overwhelming," said Shirley Diaz, Regional Director of the Red Cross in
    Southern Alberta. "We are touched by how members of the community like the
    Calgary Flames have come together in this tragic time to demonstrate their
    support in their own way."

    The National Hockey League has postponed all regularly scheduled pre-season
    games for Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16. Further details
    regarding the re-scheduling of Flames games versus the Minnesota Wild and
    the Edmonton Oilers originally scheduled for this period will be forth
