AP Source: Treliving to become Flames' new GM

JOHN MARSHALL AP Sports Writer Published:

A league official familiar with the deal says the Calgary Flames will name Phoenix Coyotes assistant general manager Brad Treliving as their next general manager.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Flames had yet to make an announcement.

He will replace Jay Feaster, who was fired on Dec. 12.

The 44-year-old Treliving spent the past seven seasons as an assistant under general manager Don Maloney, helping guide the Coyotes through a difficult four years without an owner. He also served as GM for the Coyotes' AHL affiliate in Portland, Maine.

In Calgary, Treliving will work under president of hockey operations Brian Burke. The Flames finished 35-40-7 and were 13th in the Western Conference with 77 points to miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
