Calgary Flames Official Twitter Feed Bashes Ales Hemsky’s Contract Extension, Quickly Deletes Tweet

Someone get Ales Hemsky away from a computer. The Oilers winger, who is reportedly considering a $10 million, two-year deal with Edmonton, may want to avoid social media for a while after the Calgary Flames' official Twitter feed mocked his proposed deal.

An errant tweet somehow made its way onto the team's official Twitter feed on Friday afternoon and whoever sent it isn't a big Hemsky fan.

"$10 million over two years for Hemsky is the funniest thing I've heard in a long, long time," the tweet read. "I hope it happens. #whatajoke."

The team later issued a followup statement, saying, "We apologize for a tweet that was sent out from our account inadvertently. We are looking into the matter."

Unfortunately, the damage was already done.

Check out the offending tweet below.
