CALGARY – The Calgary Flames have hired a new General Manager.

Treliving has been the Phoenix Coyotes’ Vice president of Hockey Operations and assistant general manager since July 2007.
He has also been serving as general manager of the Coyotes’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Portland Pirates.
The 44-year-old joined the Coyotes after working as the president of the Central Hockey League (CHL) for seven years.
