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

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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
