NHLPA meetings won’t ruin Flames’ charity golf event

Sep 11, 2012, 8:50 PM EDT


Contrary to earlier rumblings, this week’s NHLPA meetings won’t force every Calgary Flames player to miss the squad’s charitable golf event.

As many as 10 Flames players are expected to attend the meetings, however, according to Wes Gilbert.

Flames president Ken King released a statement about the event.

“The players who are not attending the NHLPA meetings this week in New York and are in the city already for camp, have advised us that they will be swinging the clubs for the Flames Foundation for Life,” King said. “We respect and understand the scheduling conflict that exists and appreciate that our available players have made the decision to participate.”

    This will be bitter sweet, this tournament is usually a day or two before the Flames open camp, so it’ll be a bit of a downer knowing that it’s probably not going to happen that way this year. Glad they’re still doing it though, this Flames raise a huge amount for charity every year and this is a big part of that.
