Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today the signing of forward Kris Chucko.

Chucko finished second in goals (28) and third in team scoring (51 points) with the Quad City Flames last season, and played his first two NHL games with Calgary in March.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
