The Calgary Flames have announced that the club and general manager Brad Treliving have mutually agreed to part ways. Treliving’s contract was set to expire on June 30. The club has promoted vice-president of hockey operations Don Maloney to president of hockey operations, and Maloney will serve as interim GM until a new GM is found.
Treliving was originally hired as GM in April 2014, taking over the reins from the departed Jay Feaster (and Brian Burke, who served as an interim bridge between the two regimes). During his tenure, Treliving bolstered the team’s drafting and development team and seemed to consistently find value in his dealings with restricted free agents. He occasionally struggled with adding via unrestricted free agency, and his trade record was similarly mixed.
