My First Home: Jim "Bearcat" Murray, longtime Calgary Flames athletic trainer

Now 88 years young, the ol' potlicker himself, Jim "Bearcat" Murray, long ago passed into the realm of legend hereabouts.

Nearly a quarter-century since retiring from the Calgary Flames as the only NHL athletic trainer with his own fan club (boasting Boston and Montreal chapters), Murray – recognizable by his bald head, generous moustache and ready grin – continues to be an icon.

Historic heartbeat: the Beltline offers glimpses of Calgary's past, as well as its future

My First Home: Matt Stajan, Calgary Flames alum and fan favourite

For professional hockey players, having to uproot your life and move with little notice is a constant reality, but this fact didn't fully hit home for Matt Stajan until Jan. 31, 2010.

My First Home: Dana Murzyn, Calgary Flames alum and Stanley Cup champion

For a 19-year-old just starting his career, Dana Murzyn's decision to buy his first house in the picture-perfect town of Farmington, Connecticut, 10 miles west of Hartford, seemed like nothing more than a logical step.

My First Home: Mike Vernon, Calgary Flames goaltender and Stanley Cup champion

Southwest Calgary born and raised, Mike Vernon knows his way in and around this city the way he knows his way around a game-, series- and title-saving overtime glove save off Stan Smyl.

Three decades ago, the small, acrobatic goaltender morphed into an authentic hometown hero when he helped deliver a Stanley Cup championship to the Calgary Flames.

My First Home: Peter Maher, longtime radio voice of the Calgary Flames

He was, at the time, a long way from becoming the soundtrack of an NHL franchise for an entire generation, a Foster Hewitt Award recipient, a Hockey Hall of Fame inductee and one of the most respected names in the play-by-play business. In fact, the idea of going on to call 2,954 NHL games would've quite likely made 26-year-old Peter Maher question his sanity.

However, back in 1975, in his hometown of Campbellton, N.B., Maher was a mighty busy fellow, nonetheless.
