According to the Canadian Press, in an announcement made Tuesday, Calgary Flames' head coach Bob Hartley has decided to move forward Alex Tanguay from left wing to centre to start the 2013 National Hockey League regular season.
Tanguay, apparently originally played the centre position with the Halifax Mooseheads in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, but moved to left wing when he entered the National Hockey League with the Colorado Avalanche in the 1999-2000 season.
Ironically, Tanguay's coach at the time in Colorado was Hartley, who made the change at the time because of Colorado's depth at the position, which was led by Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg.
With the move to centre, it will be interesting to see if the Flames will have Roman Cervenka play left wing and if Taguay will centre the number one line with Jarome Iginla on the right wing.
The Flames begin their 2013 National Hockey League regular season schedule Sunday afternoon against the San Jose Sharks at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Puck drop on Rogers Sportsnet is at 4:00 p.m.
