CALGARY, CANADA (WWBT) -

The Calgary Flames had to redeem itself after its mascot failed to show up for a charity hockey tournament, so it gave the youth teams a game they wouldn't forget.

Harvey the Hound missed the youth hockey tournament in December due to a scheduling conflict, leaving the teams involved pretty disappointed.

So, the team brought Harvey to the teams and brought them back to the Calgary NHL stadium. The kids got to play in the stadium, complete with authentic jerseys, an announcer, names on the scoreboard, help from NHL players and coaches and even some fireworks.
