Calgary Flames name Pascall, Conroy as assistant GMs

Calgary Flames general manager, Brad Treliving, announced Friday that two new assistant general managers are being brought aboard.. Brad Pascall, a Hockey Canada executive, will be brought on as an assistant general manager in addition to promoting special assistant to the GM Craig Conroy to assistant general manager.

Conroy has been a member of the Flames front office for five years. The past three seasons he has spent as special advisor to the general manager. “He has a passion very few have … I think Craig is a star in the making,” Treliving said.

Pascall has most recently been vice president of hockey operations/national teams since July 2010. In the past he has served on Canada’s national men’s team management group. Prior to all of this, Pascall was Hockey Canada’s senior director of men’s national teams for four years. He was involved in an executive role with Canada’s gold medal winning team at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. He was also a member of team operations for Canada at the IIHF World Championship in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Treliving simply said that “When you look at Brad’s history there is a trail of success.” A definite deciding factor when looking to bring on a new assistant general manager, Pascall will bring great elements to the team.

Troy Crowder has also been added to the team in the club’s player development staff. Crowder played seven seasons in the NHL with the New Jersey Devils, Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, and Vancouver Canucks from the 1987–88 season through 1996–97.
