The Calgary Flames will go back to the future this season, with their retro jerseys becoming their alternate jersey, which they will wear in 12 home games at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The red jerseys feature the white flaming "C" crest, with white numbers and nameplates trimmed in yellow, with white and yellow stripes on the arms and around the waist.

They replicate the jerseys the Flames wore in Calgary from 1980-94 after they moved from Atlanta, and the ones the Flames wore when Lanny McDonald captained them to the Stanley Cup in 1989.

The Flames will wear the jerseys in their home opener against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday, Oct. 14.
