Report: Calgary Flames To Bring In 2 More Notable Names

Word broke on the weekend that the Calgary Flames are about to announce that their new general manager will be Craig Conroy. Now reports have leaked that two more notable names will also be joining the front office, including a Flames legend. 

According to NHL Insiders Frank Seravalli and Elliotte Friedman, Jerome Iginla will be brought back into the organization in "an advisory or consultant role," while Dave Nonis, a strong runner-up during the team's interview process for GM, will be appointed a senior management role. 

Iginla spent 16 seasons with the Flames, holding the all-time team records for games played (1,219), goals (525), and points (1,095). He also won the Art Ross Trophy, the Rocket Richard Trophy twice, the Ted Lindsay Award and ESPN's Best NHL Player Award, also twice, all while with the Flames.

He returns to the organization after a 10-year absence, following his trade to Pittsburgh in 2013. 

Nonis is a former GM with the Toronto Maple Leafs and an executive in the Anaheim Ducks front office.
