Flames offer well wishes to former WWE champ Bret Hart

BY foxsports • February 2, 2016

The Calgary Flames tossed their hat in the ring by sending well wishes to former WWE heavyweight champion Bret Hart, who announced he is battling prostate cancer on Monday.

Hart, who is a Calgary native and nicknamed  "The Hitman" in the squared circle, is the founding owner of the Calgary Hitmen - a Western Hockey League team that competes on the major junior level. 

The club's pink and black jerseys are tribute to the 58-year-old Hart, who traditionally wore those colors during his decorated wrestling career. 

The Hitmen, who have been owned by the Flames since 1997, play their home games at Scotiabank Saddledome - the same rink as the NHL club.
