CALGARY – Calgary Flames 50/50 fans once again won’t have to be at the Saddledome to purchase a 50/50 ticket during upcoming preseason and regular season games.
Tickets can be bought online between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. MT on all Flames game days – both home and away.
Tickets can also be bought in person at games but sales will be cashless. You must be over 18 to buy a ticket.
This year they will cost $5 for 1 ticket, $10 for 10 tickets, $20 for 80 tickets and $50 for 300 tickets.
The Calgary Flames Foundation will also be introducing multiple day jackpots, the first running from Oct. 9 to 16, when participants will be able to purchase 50/50 tickets between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. each day.
Other multiple day jackpots will run Nov. 11 and 12, Jan. 19 to 22, 2022 and April 28 and 29, 2022.
The jackpot will grow over the multiple days with the winning number drawn on the final day and the winner awarded half the total jackpot.
Early bird prizes will be available at specific times on game days, with the first set to be held Nov. 23 when the Calgary Flames face off against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Other early bird prize dates include Dec. 31, Feb. 24, 2022 and March 8, 2022.
Calgary Flames prospects looking to turn some heads as they hit the ice for the first day of camp
CALGARY – Twenty-six prospects stepped onto the ice at the Scotiabank Saddledome Thursday afternoon and many of them will never play a game for the Calgary Flames.
Two prospects that will be given every opportunity are first round picks Connor Zary and Jakob Pelletier.
Zary was the Flames first rounder in the 2020 NHL draft. This is his first camp with the Flames and even though the team brought in a number of veteran forward in the offseason, he says his goal is to make the big club this season.
“You’re coming into the NHL, it’s the best league in the world and every team is full of guys that have already played and veteran guys who have been around for a while,” the 19-year-old said.
“I think what’s communicated throughout every team is probably that a young guy coming in is always looking to take an older guys spot so I think that’s what pushes the competition every single day.”
PELLETIER’S GOAL IS TO STAY IN CALGARY AS WELL
Pelletier was the Flames’ first round pick in the 2019 NHL draft. The 20-year-old already has one camp under his belt and he says he’s not here just to learn – he wants to be in Calgary this season.
“We’re here to play. I think the whole staff that’s going to make decisions and our job is just to play here,” Pelletier said.
“The goal is to make the Flames team for sure.”
MORE LIKELY TICKETED FOR STOCKTON
Even though they’d love to be here, the more likely scenario is for both young men to go down to Stockton and see plenty of action with the Heat.
Mitch Love is the Heat’s new head coach and he says he loves both player competitiveness and their hockey IQ.
“You know they think the game at a high level. You know I guess at this level now in the American Hockey League or the NHL you’ve got to make plays and think a lot quicker than you do in junior right. So that’s one thing that they’ll continue to work on.”
GREAT FRIENDS ON AND OFF THE ICE
Zary and Pelletier have become very good friends over the last few years. They share a lot of connections. Besides to both being number one picks of the Flames, they’ve played at the U18 tournament together and won a silver medal with Canada at the World Juniors tournament. Pelletier says they like being around each other.
