If you see an uptick in shoulder checks around Calgary today, this might be why.
Variable traffic signs have been spotted by drivers on Deerfoot Trail and Macleod Trail, with a Calgary Flames theme this morning — just in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
With the Flames set to open Game 1 against the Dallas Stars tonight at the Saddledome, City of Calgary signs encouraged drivers to shoulder check in a rather unique way.
“If you shoulder check… so will Lucic! Go Flames,” the sign reads.

Wouldn’t want to be a Dallas defenceman tonight.
