Calgary Flames defenseman Rasmus Anderson was in Airdrie today saying hello to local fans.

He spent around an hour at Airdrie Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram signing autographs and taking pictures with Airdronians who are fans of the Flames.

Stewart Takaguchi, with Airdrie Dodge, stated they loan him a vehicle so Anderson coming to visit is one of the perks.

"He wants to help out and do something for us. So we thought, why not share with the community."

Last year, around 200 people showed up to meet Anderson, they surpassed that number this year.
