"I'm really excited to be back in Calgary," Hathaway said. "I've loved every minute of my time here and am happy to get a deal done.

ELEVENTH HEAVEN

Mikael Backlund and Frida Engström will tie the knot on Aug. 11, capping off quite the off-season for the pair

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

On the picture-postcard-pretty island of Ekerö come Saturday, Mikael Backlund and fiancée Frida Engström will tie the knot in an Eleventh Heaven wedding.

"Most things are done, just a few details left,'' reports the Flames' all-purpose centreman. "We have a wedding planner overseeing everything, helping out, which has been nice.

"Now it's just kinda pay the bills.

"Mostly, at this point, I'm just really looking forward to it.

"And starting to get a little nervous."

If the significance of the date, Aug. 11, has somehow escaped your detection …

"Frida,'' explains Backlund, "was born on the 11th and, well, you know the jersey number I wear …

"It's lucky for us, so we wanted to pick the 11th day of a month."

READY TO MAKE A STATEMENT

Austin Czarnik is focused on landing a full-time gig in Calgary this season

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

Austin Czarnik is on course.

"Shot my first-ever 79 at my new club other day,'' reports the incoming Calgary Flames' right wing candidate.

He and pal Cameron Schilling, a Winnipeg Jets' prospect, are first-year members in good standing at Forest Lake Country Club, nestled in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., a towering 3-iron from Czarnik's home in Birmingham.

"Man, that felt great.

"And then I shot 77 two days later at another club. After a whole summer of mid-80s. So I think it's just a little tease."

And he's also on course.

"It's been a pretty hectic summer trying to get ready for camp,'' Czarnik acknowledges.

"But I've done everything in my power to be as prepared as I possibly can.

"I understand this is a really good opportunity for me. That's the one thing I was looking for and we talked about before I signed. An opportunity. That's all anybody can ask for.

"My goal is to make the team out of camp."
