A wall on the Saddledome's event level is dedicated the 1989 Calgary Flames club that won the franchise's only Stanley Cup title.
It lists the players, coaches and owners but also keeps a record of individual achievements by the players. That's what caught my attention this week.
It should surprise no one current captain Jarome Iginla leads the way with seven awards.
Next on the list is blueliner Al MacInnis who was a Flame from 1981 to 1994, playing more than 800 games before moving to St. Louis. He's on the wall half a dozen times. Today's No. 1 goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff has not been around all that long but he shares third on the totem pole in individual honours with three, the same as Lanny McDonald, Gary Suter, Joe Nieuwendyk and Joey Mullen.
The golf season has been put back a bit by the weather and because of that Bill Creighton has asked we mention entries close Wednesday for the annual Riley's Best-Ball event. The draw will be staged April 23.
RANHEIM GIVES BACK
When Kathy Ranheim was named to the University of Calgary Hall of Fame earlier this month, she accepted the award in surprising fashion, announcing she and husband Paul are making an endowed scholarship for women's soccer at the school.
It will be the first such scholarship for women's soccer and it comes from an athlete who was the first female soccer player to be named an All-Canadian, the first Calgary player to perform internationally and the first Female Athlete of the Year in her sport. Her husband, Paul, of course, is a former Calgary Flames forward.
ALBERTA SKIP SECOND
Alberta's entry in the Canadian wheelchair curling championships in Ottawa, skipped by Bruno Yizek out of the Ogden Legion Curling Club, finished second to B.C. with a 4-2 loss in the final.
Until next week.
