The Edmonton Oilers will have to be on the lookout for a new home for the NHL’s Calgary Flames this season.
The Flames have been on the move for the past month, moving from a downtown Calgary venue to the new home of the Calgary Stampeders in a deal announced Wednesday.
The Stampedes announced the deal with Rogers Communications and will use the new arena as their home in 2019.
The Flames are one of the NHL teams with the longest playoff drought in franchise history, having gone 11-22 in the postseason.
The NHL announced Thursday that it would continue its contract with the Stampede for the 2018-19 season and 2019-20 seasons, but the league did not reveal the details of the new deal.
The Calgary Stamps have a $5.7 million cap hit and a $2.2 million luxury tax hit next season.
Calgary has the third-worst payroll in the NHL behind only the San Jose Sharks and Nashville Predators.
The Calgary Stiffs are scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Western Conference final on Sunday.
