With millions of gallons of water still inside the arena, restoration of the Scotiabank Saddledome has yet to begin, but Flames president Ken King said restoration will not cause canceled games next year.

"We are going to be ready for the start of the season," King said, via the team's Twitter account.

King said flooding caused a total loss on the event level of the arena, with water levels still as high as the eighth row. He said if a person was standing on the ice, they would be completely underwater.
