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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
