Conroy taking on hosting duties at 2012 Let\'s Talk Hockey session

CALGARY, AB -- On Saturday, Sept. 15, Calgary Flames special assistant to the general manager Craig Conroy will host the 2012 Let's Talk Hockey event in support of the Prep Program, a resource center dedicated to the inclusion of individuals with Down Syndrome at home, school and within the community.

"I went a couple of times when Kelly Hrudey was hosting it so I knew what it was about," Conroy told "I found out Kelly wasn't hosting it anymore and Christy Hall asked, 'Craig, would you be interested in taking over?' ... It's such a great cause and I'm happy to be involved.

"Things have been going really well and it's going to be a great turnout."

Flames general manager Jay Feaster, head coach Bob Hartley, associate coach Jacques Cloutier and assistant coach Martin Gelinas will take questions from Conroy and Sportsnet's Rob Kerr about a variety of topics within the world of hockey.

"We've got some fun stuff, some serious questions - we're going to have a good time with it. I'm really excited about it."
