We all know the devistation Fort McMurray has gone through over the past few weeks. A massive wild fire ripped through the town, leaving a path of distruction in it's wake. While the residents of Fort McMurray try to cope with their losses and get back on their feet, the NHL and NHL teams and players were showing their support on Social Media.


The Flames Social Media channels celebrated May 4, 2016 the same way a lot of of people did on Social Media, by honouring Star Wars! Images of Flames personalities portraying Star Wars characters were posted on Twitter and Facebook throughout the day.


Mother's Day was a popular topic on Social Media on Sunday. Flames players were active all day recognizing the sacrificices their mothers and wives made to help them gt to where they are. Leading the pack? Sam Bennett knocked it out of the park with a gift his mother will not soon forget!

So I made my mom cry on Mother's Day this morning.. No one deserves this more
