The 1992–93 Calgary Flames season was the 13th National Hockey League season in Calgary. The Flames rebounded from their disappointing 1991–92 season, finishing 2nd in the Smythe Division, four points behind the Vancouver Canucks.

The Flames met the Los Angeles Kings in the Smythe Division semi-finals. The series was an offensive showdown, with the Flames setting team records for most goals scored in a six game series (28) and most goals against (33).[1] The Flames once again failed to win a playoff series, falling in six games.

Two Flames represented the Campbell Conference at the 1993 All-Star Game: Forward Gary Roberts and goaltender Mike Vernon.[2]

On February 10, 1993, the Flames set numerous franchise and league records in a 13–1 victory over the San Jose Sharks. In addition to being a team record for goals scored at 13, the score also represents the largest margin of victory in team history (12). Calgary set a new team mark for fastest four goals scored (1:21). Jeff Reese set an NHL record for points in one game by a goaltender with 3 assists, while Theoren Fleury set a league record by going +9 in this game.[3] All of these records remain today.

Four Flames (Theoren Fleury, Joe Nieuwendyk, Robert Reichel and Gary Roberts) reached the 30-goal plateau.[4]

Prior to the season, the Flames lost two players in the 1992 NHL Expansion Draft, as Left Winger Chris Lindberg was selected by the Ottawa Senators 35th overall, and forward Tim Hunter went to the Tampa Bay Lightning 42nd overall.
