The Calgary Flames announced Wednesday they will launch a weekly video on the team's website that will cater to the city's growing Punjabi community. With the launch, the Flames become the first Canadian NHL team with multilingual coverage in a language other than English and French.

The most recent Canadian census shows nearly 1 million Punjabi-speaking people in Canada, making Punjabi the third most-spoken language in the country. The Flames said the Punjabi content on their site is designed not only to serve a growing community within the city but also to expand interest in hockey. Videos will include team and player storylines as well as behind-the-scenes features.

Harnarayan Singh, the host and play-by-play commentator of CBC Hockey Night in Canada in Punjabi, will write and host the videos.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
