The Calgary Flames made two additions to their front office today, as the team announced Brad Pascall and Craig Conroy as assistant general managers.
It was the major move by Flames new general manager Brad Treliving of Penticton.
Pascall joins the Flames after serving as the vice-president of hockey operations for Hockey Canada, an organization he was with for almost two decades.
The Coquitlam, B.C. native was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in 1990 and played four years of college hockey at the University of North Dakota, and another four years as a blueliner in the minors.
Pascall is the husband to former Canadian captain Cassie Campbell-Pascall of the national women’s hockey team that won Olympic gold medals in 2002 and 2006. His father is the former longtime BCTV sports director, Bernie Pascall.
Conroy moves up from his position as a special assistant with the Flames, a role he began in 2011 following his retirement after a sixteen year NHL career. He played over 1,000 games with the Flames (twice), Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues.
Current Flames President Brian Burke also has connections to this province, as he had two stints with the Canucks in a management role.
