Coyotes assistant general manager Brad Treliving will be named the new GM of the Calgary Flames on Monday, an NHL source confirmed Monday morning. The news was originally reported by CBC's Elliotte Friedman. Treliving, 44, just completed his seventh season with the Coyotes. He joined the organization after serving as the president of the Central Hockey League (CHL) for seven years, during which time the CHL experienced growth, adding expansion franchises such as the Arizona Sundogs in Prescott Valley. Treliving also co-founded the Western Professional Hockey League (WPHL) in 1996 and served as the league’s vice president and director of hockey operations for five seasons. He played an integral role in the merger of the WPHL and the CHL in May 2001. Treliving has been rumored as a candidate for other GM positions and interviewed for the Buffalo GM spot that Tim Murray eventually took in January. General manager Don Maloney has spoken repeatedly about Treliving's importance to the organization both because of his understanding of the salary cap, and because of his role in overseeing the scouting department and the club's AHL affiliate in Portland.  In Calgary, Treliving replaces Jay Feaster, who was fired in December. Brian Burke, the team's president of hockey operations, served as acting general manager for the remainder of the season. Calgary did not make the playoffs in Feaster's two full seasons as GM.
