by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

In his eight years on the circuit, Josh Leivo had never felt better.

His game was evolving - his confidence, booming - and seemingly nothing could slow the surge of adrenaline propelling him forward as an impact player.

But his campaign was cut short.

Too short.

'I'M VERY PUMPED'

It's been a long off-season for Dominik Simon, who can't wait to suit up with new Flames teammates

by TY PILSON @typilson / CalgaryFlames.com

Simon says - he can't wait to get back on the ice for some NHL action.

You sure can't blame the guy. 

Covid-19 has turned the hockey world upside down in 2020, with the season suspended in March, followed by some teams resuming with a play-in round and playoffs in the summer, before a second 'off-season' as the NHL continues to plan for the beginning of the delayed 2020-21 campaign.

LANDING A BIG CATCH

Lindholm helped reel in free-agent and good pal Nordstrom, who was excited to play with him - and fellow friend Markstrom - in Calgary

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

Nothing beats a relaxing day on the water.

Friends gathering under the scorching, summery blue sky, casting lines and reeling a trophy in from under the glassy facade.

Here, the catch of the day begged for a photo - a snapshot meant solely 'for the 'gram,' but one worthy of the cover of Field & Stream. 

Even if these anglers were a sliver off target, this time.
