David Benediktson sits at the dining table in the house he built with his wife, Jodi, west of Calgary. To look at him—unassuming and barefoot—you’d never know that he can make planes fall from the sky and land precisely, and launch vehicles into the air all while keeping A-list actors such as Halle Berry, Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Cruise intact. He looks like a mix of Grizzly Adams and Jim Carrey, his boyish features set off by a healthy beard. The beard is flecked with grey but it is intact. That and the presence of both eyebrows speak to his skill as a special effects expert who gets paid to blow things up. “I’ve wrecked so many things: brand new cars and motorcycles, houses,” he says. “Sooo many things, with a smile on my face, a sledgehammer in my hand and a paycheque in my pocket.” Benediktson also has a way with flames and controlled explosions. His IMDB page lists his work on films such as Star Trek: Beyond, The Revenant,

Earlier this week the Calgary Flames fired head coach Glen Gulutzan along with assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard. And though they missed the playoffs by 11 points, on paper the Flames still look like a team set up to contend as soon as next season. Even the dismissed head coach agrees. “The only real regret for me is that I think it’s a great group, there’s great people here, it’s a great city and now I’m not going to be a part of a team moving forward that I think is going to be a real strong team in the years to come,”

Carolina Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters was on the hot seat for much of the season. He now looks to be in the driver’s seat and a top prospect for the head coaching job with the Calgary Flames. An announcement is coming soon that will set Peters’ coaching future — in Carolina, in Calgary or in limbo. If Peters can get the job in Calgary, he should bolt as quickly as he can. The Peters Contract Peters was signed to a contract extension in July 2016 that married him to the Hurricanes through the 2018-19 season…married in a hockey sort of way. The team could issue a divorce decree at any time, of course, and the contract allows him to annul the marriage with a year remaining on the deal. Ian McLaren

In addition to Gulutzan, assistant coaches Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard were also let go. Was Gulutzan fully to blame for the failed 2017-18 season of the Flames? Absolutely not. In fact, he was one of the lesser concerns. But the reality is his time in Calgary is done, which presents the question who will replace him? There’s no shortage of viable candidates on the market, so Flames general manager Brad Treliving will be a busy man over the next few weeks. Bill Peters If there was a favorite to land the Flames’ head-coaching job, it would probably be Bill Peters. While his NHL resume
