Daryl ‘Doc’ Seaman, a decorated World War II veteran, was one of six Calgary businessmen to bring the Atlanta Flames to Calgary in 1980. He was instrumental in getting the Saddledome built in 1983 and in getting the 1988 Winter Olympics to Calgary. A passionate hockey fan, Seaman partnered with his friend Harley Hotchkiss to create Project 75 (now known as the Seaman Hotchkiss Hockey Foundation) in 1980. The Foundation has contributed over $5,000,000 to minor hockey development initiatives, such as offering scholarships, helping to build arenas in Canada, and contributing to charities in Alberta.
