Calgary Flames New GM Revealed, To Be Announced This Week

Several front office positions around the NHL are still open, but according to a new report, one is about to filled.

TSN hockey insider Darren Dreger has dropped the news that the Calgary Flames will be naming Craig Conroy as their new general manager in the coming week.

Conroy has been the assistant GM in Calgary since 2014-15, and had been in the Flames' front office since his retirement in 2011. Many had expected him to be Brad Treliving’s replacement after his departure following the season. Conroy was also a player with the Flames in an earlier life, and was part of their 2004 Finals run. 

Others who had been under consideration for the job included Dave Nonis, Stan Bowman and Marc Bergevin.

The announcement is expected to take place on Tuesday.
