Martin “Eliminator” Gelinas
Randy Sportak is reporting that Martin Gelinas will join the Flames coaching staff.
Gelinas is most remembered by Flames fans for his 2004 playoff heroics. Martin was the man who scored / didn’t score the Stanley Cup clinching goal in game 6.
Martin Gelinas played over 1200 NHL games, reaching the 30 goal mark twice in his career. But mostly, Martin was a hard working forward that could play in all situations. The Shawinigan native will be a solid addition to the Flames new coaching staff. Hopefully he can coach the current Flames to scoring key playoff goals!
Gelinas on joining the Flames coaching team- "It's exciting for me. My heart has always been here from 2004 on. You never forget what you accomplished."
