Win or lose this playoff season, the C of Red will still be swimming with notable alumni and devoted fans. In fact, you may even recognize some of them as famous actors, musicians, and comedians. Now despite being down in the battle of Alberta (for now), it’s worth commemorating how far we’ve come in this series – so here are just a few celebrities who have shown the Calgary Flames some love over the years. Just for fun! 


A big fan of red and white – Jason Momoa is often seen supporting northern businesses and our pro sports teams when he’s in and around Canadian sets. As you can imagine fans went absolutely bananas when he showed up at the 2018 Calgary Comic Expo in a personalized Flames Jersey.


Known for his role on the popular Netflix series ‘The 100,’ Calgary-born actor Jarod Joseph is a huge fan of the Flames and has even worked with the team to release a line of official merch with the NHL. Check it out at the link above!

A post shared by Nick Kroll (@nickkroll)

As seen above in a celebratory Instapost, comedian Nick Kroll (Big Mouth) shared his love for former Flames icon Joel Otto, his old Calgary jersey, and his dad’s legs in the caption. That’s a pretty solid shout-out if we’ve ever seen one.

Comedy legends, Marlon and Shawn Wayans are also among celebs who have repped the flaming C while in Calgary. Famously, the duo practically shut down the Saddledome when they attended a home game in 2010.


The wife of ex-Flames right-wing Vale Bure, the ‘Full House’ star has publically supported Calgary’s home team more than once – celebrating wins, comebacks, and even the return of their retro jerseys. We got it, dude!


A polarizing character, Conan O’Brien caught the attention of eagle-eyed Flames fans during a 2015 episode of his late-night show in which a framed Calgary jersey can be seen hung up in his office. You might not love him, but he loves us (at least enough to display a flaming C in his space.)

A post shared by Tegan and Sara (@teganandsara)

Born in Calgary, it should come as no surprise that alt-pop favorites Tegan and Sara are also fans of our home team – sharing that some of their earliest memories were from their ’89 Stanley Cup win as a way to celebrate this season’s battle of Alberta. Cute, right?


While we’re unsure who Anderson himself cheers for during the playoffs, his on-screen persona MacGyver was a huge Flames fan, often wearing Calgary swag on the show.
