Just like in old times, Michael Cammalleri is chatting away in the Calgary Flames dressing room while lovingly taping up a hockey stick.

The topic of conversation on this day: top celebrity sightings.

"I met all kinds of people in entertainment and sport when I lived in L.A." Cammalleri is saying. "But for me, the most star-struck I've ever been is meeting Fred Couples."

Really?

"I know that's a little weird," he says. "There were some A-list celebrities I met. But he was my golfing hero growing up. It was the only time I ever got tongue-tied when I met somebody."
