Throughout the 2005-06 regular season will sit down one-on-one with players and have a little fun while finding out a little more about the player on a personal side.

Jason Wiemer was signed as a free agent Aug. 5, 2004 and joined the Flames this season. Prior to his time with the Flames, Wiemer skated with the likes of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, New York Islanders and most recently the Minnesota Wild.
