CALGARY -- A diehard Calgary Flames fan s plot to get under Edmontonians skin might come actually to fruition with the help of a Calgary radio station.
After Saturday nights Battle of Alberta and the now-infamous altercation between Tkachuk and Edmonton Oilers forward Zack Kassian which led to a two-game suspension for Kassian Mohammed Elsaghir wanted to have some fun with Oilers fans and get under their skin a little bit.
He concocted a plan and shared it on social media.
"I started a GoFundMe page to raise money for billboards to put up his face all around the city of Edmonton," he said.
Elsaghir had no idea it would blow up the way it did, but the money started pouring in.
He said he really didnt think logistically it would be possible to do the billboards so he came up with another idea he wanted to put the money raised toward charity.
