COYOTES NAME BRAD TRELIVING
ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER
Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced that Brad Treliving has agreed to a multi-year contract to become Assistant General Manager of the Coyotes. As per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Treliving, 37, joins the Coyotes after serving as the President of the Central Hockey League (CHL) for the past seven years. During his tenure, Treliving guided the CHL to remarkable growth and development. Last season, the league led all North American “AA” professional hockey leagues in attendance for the sixth consecutive campaign. Numerous successful expansion franchises were introduced including the Arizona Sundogs in Prescott Valley who began play in a new arena in 2006-07.
“Brad brings a diverse skill-set to what we are trying to accomplish here at the Coyotes,” said Maloney. “His work at the CHL has been excellent and he is a great addition to our front office team.”
Treliving 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. The native of Penticton, British Columbia played an integral role in the merger of the WPHL and the CHL in May 2001 upon which he began his tenure as President of the league.
“I would like to sincerely thank Don Maloney and the Coyotes for this opportunity,” said Treliving. “My time in the CHL has been nothing short of wonderful and I can not thank enough the talented people I have been associated with in the CHL over the last 12 years.”
Prior to his front office career, Treliving played five professional hockey seasons from 1990-91 to 1994-95 including stints with the Indianapolis Ice of the International Hockey League (IHL) and both the New Haven and Prince Edward Island Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL). The defenseman also registered 17 goals, 85 assists, and 102 points as well as 811 penalty minutes in 243 games in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL).
Treliving, his wife Julie and daughters Ryann and Reese reside in Scottsdale.
