Glen Gulutzan

Head Coach

Glen Gulutzan is a native of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, and brings 15 years of coaching experience to the club. Prior to serving as an assistant coach for the Vancouver Canucks from the 2013-14 season to the 2015-16 season, the 44-year-old was the head coach of the Dallas Stars for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons and before that, he led the American Hockey League's Texas Stars for a pair of campaigns. In 2009-10, he took the AHL's Stars to the Calder Cup finals.

Gulutzan played junior hockey in the WHL with Moose Jaw, Brandon and Saskatoon, then two years with the University of Saskatchewan, before playing professionally for seven seasons. His coaching career began in the final four seasons of his playing career when he served as a player-assistant coach for the Fresno Falcons of the West Coach Hockey League, including in 2001-02 when they won the league's championship.

Gulutzan took over the reigns as head coach for the East Coast Hockey League's Las Vegas Wranglers in the 2003-04 campaign. He has a familiarity with the Flames organization as all six years he spent with the club they were Calgary's ECHL affiliate. Gulutzan had a record of 254-124-55 over the half-dozen seasons, including three straight where the Wranglers had 100+ points (2005-06 - 2007-08) - a first for any ECHL team. He also won the ECHL's Coach of the Year honours in 2005-06.

In 2009, the Stars organization bought Iowa's defunct American Hockey League franchise and moved it to Austin where it became the Texas Stars. Glen Gulutzan was named the first head coach of the club and held that role for two seasons, including 2009-10's Calder Cup final campaign. He then assumed the head coaching position with the NHL's Stars for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. After Gulutzan and the team parted ways in 2013, he was quickly brought on board with Vancouver and served as an assistant coach there for the last three years.

Glen, his wife Nicole, and their four children (Emma (15), Brielle (13), Landen (11), and Grace (9)) will make the move to Calgary this summer.

Paul Jerrard comes to Calgary after serving as an assistant coach for Vancouver's American Hockey League affiliate, the Utica Comets. The 51-year-old Jerrard joins Calgary after 19 seasons as a coach in three different leagues. Prior to his time in Utica, the Winnipeg, Manitoba native was an assistant coach for Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan from 2011-12 to 2012-13 with the Dallas Stars and also from 2009-10 and 2010-11 with the Stars AHL affiliate in Texas. Jerrard served one other season as an NHL assistant coach when he worked for Colorado in 2002-03.

He also worked seven other seasons as an assistant coach in the AHL: in 1998-99 with Lowell, from 2003-04 to 2004-05 with Hershey, and from 2005-06 to 2008-09 with Iowa. His first coaching position was as an assistant for Lake Superior State University where he worked in 1997-98 and then from 1999-00 to 2001-02.

Martin Gelinas

Assistant Coach

Martin Gelinas is entering his fifth season as an assistant coach with the Calgary Flames. Prior to joining the Flames, Gelinas served as the Director of Player Development for the Nashville Predators, joining the staff following his retirement as a player in 2009.

In his 19-year NHL career, Gelinas played in 1,273 games (62nd all-time at the start of this season) and scored 660 points. He played the 2002-03 and 2004-04 seasons with the Flames, and tied an NHL record by scoring three playoff series-clinching goals in the same year - including two in overtime - during the Flames' 2004 Stanley Cup run (and joining Ken Linseman in the record book in the process).

"The Eliminator," as Gelinas was known, is one just a handful of players to have reached the Stanley Cup Finals with four different teams; the left-winger won a Stanley Cup in 1990 as a member of the Edmonton Oilers and also played in the NHL Finals in 1994 and 2002. He also played two professional seasons in Switzerland (2004-05 and 2008-09).

A native of Shawinigan, Quebec, Gelinas made a splash in 1987-88 with the Hull Olympiques of the QMJHL with a 63-goal, 131-point campaign. He was named CHL Rookie of the Year and selected seventh overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. But Gelinas never suited up for the Kings. Two months after the draft, on August 9, 1988, he was included in the celebrated "Gretzky Trade" that sent Gelinas, Kings center Jimmy Carson, the team's first round picks in the 1989, 1991 and 1993 entry drafts, and a reported $15 million cash to Edmonton in exchange for Wayne Gretzky, Mike Krushelnyski and Marty McSorley.

Gelinas played six games for the Oilers in 1988 before being re-joining the Olympiques. In his first full NHL season in 1989-90, Gelinas had 25 points in 46 games, and won the Stanley Cup as Edmonton defeated the Boston Bruins in five games. Along with Joe Murphy and Adam Graves, he helped make up the popular Oilers' forward line known as "The Kid Line." Gelinas was the last player from the 1980s Oilers' dynasty active in the NHL.

He was traded to the Quebec Nordiques during the 1993 NHL Entry Draft and played 31 games for
Quebec before being claimed on waivers by the Vancouver Canucks. Gelinas was a major factor
in Vancouver's 1994 postseason run losing in seven games in the Stanley Cup Finals to the New
York Rangers. He and goaltender Kirk McLean were traded to the Carolina Hurricanes on January 3, 1998, where he spent five seasons before joining the Calgary Flames. He went on to play a year in Switzerland during the 2004-05 season before signing with the Florida Panthers for the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons. He concluded his NHL career in 2007-08 as a member of the Nashville Predators, where his season was cut short by a knee injury. He was Nashville's Masterton Trophy nominee that year.

Gelinas and his family have lived in Calgary since 2002. He and his wife, Jane, have three children - a son, Matthew, and daughters Cameron and Morgan. Matthew was selected by Swift Current in the 2010 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.
