In that time, the Flames have won one Stanley Cup, in the 1988-89 season. They’ve reached the Final two other times with the most recent coming in 2003-04 when they lost in seven games to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Calgary Sports and Entertainment also owns the AHL’s Stockton Heat, the Western Hockey League’s (WHL) Calgary Hitmen, the Canadian Football League’s (CFL) Calgary Stampede and the NLL’s Calgary Roughnecks. The Flames are worth $480 million (2020).
