-- Emotionally and physically drained, the newest Flame flickered to life upon arriving to the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Returning to the rink for the first time as a member of the Flames since 2009, Mike Cammalleri
was all smiles as he walked into his new, old dressing room grinning from ear to ear while holding up a Calgary jersey.
He took a moment to acclimatize himself to the familiar surroundings before gleefully discussing his return to the organization.
"It's exciting to be back," Cammalleri said. "It's been a whirlwind, but it's nice to get here, get into the locker room and get ready to play hockey again. (It's been) pretty wild. I haven't had much sleep at all and it's been a lot of travel and phone calls and messages and things of that nature."
Needless to say, the last day or two have been a blur for Cammalleri.
