"I'm pleased to announce Brad as our general manager," said Flames President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke. "He has been identified as the top young guy in the business and it's evident that he has prepared carefully for this day, acquiring extensive front office experience in all areas."
Treliving will report directly to Burke and will be responsible for all team personnel decisions, both players and staff; manage the amateur and pro scouting staffs.
"I'm excited to be in Calgary. To work in the hockey business in a Canadian city is truly an honor," said Treliving. "I'm proud to be a western Canada guy so it's especially exciting and a homecoming for me.
"Over the course of my career, I've been dedicated to acquiring the experience and developing the skills required to not only receive this opportunity but to excel in it. I look forward to getting started and working with Brian and the entire staff."
With the Coyotes, Treliving worked closely with Phoenix GM Don Maloney on the day-to-day administration of the Coyotes' hockey operations. He also served as GM of the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Portland Pirates.
