Flames prospect Ben Hanowski was one of thousands evacuated from his Alberta home Friday because of massive flooding.
The 22-year-old from Little Falls, Minn., has been sharing an apartment with center Max Reinhart, but he was forced to find alternate accommodations as water spilled into the downtown core Friday. "For me, it was definitely scary this morning," Hanowski said. "I’ve never been a part of a dangerous natural disaster like this, and then it’s in a city I don’t know and I don’t really know my way around that well. So, for me, it was hectic and scary just trying to figure out where I was going to go and how I was going to go about getting there. It was almost terrifying, a little bit. And then I saw right where I was driving about a half an hour later (on TV) and it was completely flooded, so I just got out in the nick of time."
