CALGARY — Peter Maher has called his last game for the Calgary Flames.

Maher, the radio voice of the Flames since they moved to Alberta from Atlanta in 1980, announced his retirement from broadcasting at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

He called over 3,100 NHL games in his career without missing an assignment. He most recently did play-by-play announcing for radio station The Fan 960.

“Since arriving in Calgary in September of 1980, I have thousands, maybe millions of people to thank for this wonderful ride that I’ve had living the dream,” Maher said.
