Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving added to his staff Friday, hiring longtime Hockey Canada executive Brad Pascall as assistant general manager and promoting special assistant to the GM Craig Conroy to assistant general manager.

Pascall had been vice president of hockey operations/national teams since July 2010. He also served on Canada's national men's team management group. He had been Hockey Canada's senior director of men's national teams since 2006, including serving in an executive role with Canada's gold medal-winning team at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

"When you look at Brad's history ... there is a trail of success," Treliving said during a press conference to announce the moves.

Pascall played significant roles building Canada's teams for the IIHF World Junior Championship from 2007-09.

"It's a little bit surreal. It's exciting. It's exhilarating," Pascall said. "It's everybody's end goal to work in the best League in the world."

Conroy is entering his fifth season in the Flames front office, the past three as special adviser to the GM.

"He has a passion very few have ... I think Craig is a star in the making," Treliving said.

The Flames added Troy Crowder to their player development staff. Crowder played 150 NHL games in six seasons with the New Jersey Devils, Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
