TheFourthPeriod.com

The Calgary Flames have named Bob Hartley their new head coach, signing him to a three-year contract.

Hartley joins the Flames following a championship season with the ZSC Lions of Switzerland's National League A.

"Bob Hartley is a winner. Bob has won at every level he has coached, from the QMJHL to the AHL to the NHL to Switzerland, and we are confident he is going to continue his winning ways in Calgary," said Flames GM Jay Feaster. "He is a tireless worker, an outstanding motivator, a great bench boss and game strategist; and a teacher at heart. Moreover, he is a great person as well. We look forward to Bob and his wife Micheline joining the Flames family, and to Bob taking our hockey club to the next level."

Hartley, a native of Hawkesbury, Ontario, coached the Colorado Avalanche for five seasons, during which they won the 2001 Stanley Cup, and also coached the Atlanta Thrashers for parts of five seasons.

"It's great to return to the League in a city, a community and an organization that has such an outstanding reputation and passion for hockey and success," Hartley said. "I look forward to assuming my position and starting the preparation process for the 2012-13 season."
