GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have signed vice president of hockey operations and assistant general manager Brad Treliving to a multi-year contract extension.
Treliving is entering his seventh season as assistant GM of the club.
He joined the Coyotes after serving as the President of the Central Hockey League for seven years. During his tenure, the CHL expanded and led all North American "double-A" professional hockey leagues in attendance six consecutive years.
"We are very pleased to re-sign Brad to a multi-year contract extension," Coyotes GM Don Maloney said in a statement. "Brad is a valuable member of our hockey operations department and has done a great job managing our AHL affiliate in Portland."
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
