Remember the days of Willi Plett? Paul Reinhart? Joey Mullen? Of course you do!

It's go time for the Calgary Flames and to get fans into the action, the NHL club has introduced new third jerseys that take us straight back to the 80s.

The Flames will wear the third jersey during the 2016/2017 NHL season for 12 games, including the first appearance at the club's home opener against the Edmonton Oilers Oct.14.

They'll also have them for the the New Year's Eve classic - this year against the Arizona Coyotes. Scroll down for a full list of dates.
