The Calgary Flames announced on Thursday that they’ve signed general manager Brad Treliving to a multi-year contract extension.
Treliving is entering his sixth season with the organization after he joined the Flames in 2014. Calgary recorded its second highest point total in franchise history last season with 107 points and claimed the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.
Calgary flamed out early in the playoffs in 2019, dropping a first-round series to the Colorado Avalanche in five games, but the team has made the post-season three times during Treliving’s tenure, advancing to the second round in 2014-15.
"Over the past five years, Brad has done an excellent job putting a team together on and off the ice," said Flames President and CEO John Bean in a release. "Continuity is important in this role. Brad has earned the trust and respect of our ownership group and our fans. We look forward to continuing our work together as we strive for our ultimate goal; another Stanley Cup championship for the City of Calgary."
Treliving served as the Vice President of Hockey Operations & Assistant GM with the Phoenix Coyotes for seven seasons before he joined the Flames in 2014. Prior to his time with the Coyotes, Treliving spent seven years as the President of the Central Hockey League (CHL). He played five seasons of professional hockey in the IHL, AHL and the ECHL in the early 1990s.
The Penticton, BC, native is thankful for the opportunity to continue building a Cup contender in Calgary.
"Thank you to the Flames ownership group, John Bean and Ken King for their confidence and continued support," Treliving said on Thursday. "I'm excited to work with our talented hockey operations staff, coaches and players as we continue on our mission of bringing a Stanley Cup back to Calgary."
