INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - The Kansas City Mavericks announced Thursday the hockey club has reached an affiliation extension with the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League for the 2020-21 season. This affiliation extension also extends the partnership between the Mavericks and Stockton Heat of the American Hockey League.
This will be the fourth season of the affiliation, making the Flames the longest tenured NHL affiliate in Mavs history.
"The Calgary Flames and the Stockton Heat are pleased to continue our affiliation agreement with the ECHL's Kansas City Mavericks," said Calgary Flames Assistant General Manager, Brad Pascall.

"We are looking forward to working with the Calgary Flames and their AHL Affiliate, the Stockton Heat," said Mavericks Team President and General Manager, Brent Thiessen.
