We are continually blown away by the passion Flames fans have for their team! We get a ton of messages and photos from fans every day and love reading them! Have a picture of yourself representing the #CofRed? Use the hashtag and share it with us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook!

Here are a few photos sent to us this week:

Little Trevor and Mony were equally happy to meet each other! Thanks to his dad, Mike, for sharing!

Mikael Backlund has joined Team Sweden ahead of the 2016 World Championship, taking place May 6-22 in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia. Tre Kronor is happy to have the 27-year-old in the fold for this year's tournament!

And Backs is happy to be there!


A couple of Flames have charitable initiatives on the horizon and have started promotion via social media!

First up, Johnny's new scholarship golf tournament!

Joe Colborne, who created Colborne's Forces as a way to give back to Canadian Armed Forces members, will host the inaugural Colborne's Forces Benefit Concert on June 25th!

Backs is a long-time supporter of @barncancerfond, which supports children suffering from cancer. He and his friends started @vasmotcancern to raise funds and awareness for Barncancerfonden. You can check out their site HERE.
