The Calgary Flames are proud to introduce the Calgary Wranglers as their new American Hockey League affiliate, to begin play this October.
The Wranglers become the second team to don the name in Calgary following the Calgary Wranglers of the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League (WCHL), who came to Calgary in 1977. The WCHL Wranglers played in Calgary for 10 seasons, graduating such Flames alumni as Kelly Kisio, Dana Murzyn, and Mike Vernon to the National Hockey League.
The return of the Calgary Wranglers, this time as the Flames’ top development affiliate, brings a fresh, new look to the original Wranglers logo that had a significant era in Calgary hockey history.
Led by AHL Coach of the Year Mitch Love and AHL Goaltender of the Year Dustin Wolf, the Flames’ AHL affiliate captured the Pacific Division title in 2021-22 before advancing all the way to the Western Conference Finals of the Calder Cup Playoffs.
