The Calgary Flames were back on home ice yesterday training for the NHL's resumption of play next month.

They took to the ice in two separate groups, one at 10 am and the next at 12:15 to comply with health and safety protocols surrounding COVID-19.

Cochrane's own Dillon Dube is on the Flames training camp roster this year helping the boys prepare for the first round qualifying series against the Winnipeg Jets which is set to begin on August 1 at Rogers Place in Edmonton.

Although COVID-19 threw a wrench in this year's hockey season, Dube has had an impressive season all the same. He made six goals and 10 assists in 45 games with the Flames this season. 

Missing in action on the Flames training camp roster is defenceman Travis Hamonic. Hamonic made the tough choice not to rejoin his teammates for the remainder of the season for family health and safety considerations surrounding COVID-19.

Toronto has been chosen as the hub city for the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The first round of the playoffs kicks off on August 11 and The Stanley Cup final is scheduled to start on September 22.
