by @NHLdotcom

Brad Treliving signed a multiyear contract extension Thursday to remain general manager of the Calgary Flames. No other details were disclosed.

Treliving joined the Flames on April 28, 2014, and the 50-year-old is entering his sixth season as GM. The Flames went 50-25-7 last season to finish first in the Pacific Division and the Western Conference; the 107 points were their second-highest total since entering the NHL as the Atlanta Flames in 1972. Calgary was the top seed in the West in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs but lost to the Colorado Avalanche in five games in the first round.

"I'm excited to work with our talented hockey operations staff, coaches and players as we continue on our mission of bringing a Stanley Cup back to Calgary," he said.

With Treliving as GM, the Flames have qualified for the playoffs three times, advancing to the second round in 2014-15, and are 212-163-35, a .560 point percentage. Calgary begins its regular season at Colorado on Thursday (9 p.m. ET; ALT, SNW, NHL.TV).

"Over the past five years, Brad has done an excellent job putting a team together on and off the ice," Flames president and CEO John Bean said. "Continuity is important in this role. Brad has earned the trust and respect of our ownership group and our fans. We look forward to continuing our work together as we strive for our ultimate goal: another Stanley Cup championship for the city of Calgary."

Before joining the Flames, Treliving worked was vice president and assistant GM of the Phoenix Coyotes for seven seasons. Prior to that, he was president of the Central Hockey League for seven years.
