The boss is here to stay.

On the same day the Calgary Flames are set to begin the 2019-20 season, the team has announced that they’ve re-signed GM Brad Treliving to a multi-year contract extension. According to a report by NHL insider John Shannon, the contract is a three-year extension, keeping him with the Flames until the end of the 2022-23 season.

Treliving, who joined the Flames’ organization on April 28, 2014, was in the last year of his contract.

After some up-and-down years during his tenure, the Flames put together the second-highest point total in franchise history last season, as 107 points topped the Western Conference.

“Thank you to the Flames Ownership Group, John Bean and Ken King for their confidence and continued support,” said Treliving in a media release. “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.”

Notable moves Treliving has been responsible for include drafting Matthew Tkachuk and Sam Bennett, trading for Elias Lindholm, Noah Hanifin, and Travis Hamonic, and signing Derek Ryan, Michael Frolik, and Cam Talbot.

“Over the past five years, Brad has done an excellent job putting a team together on and off the ice,” said Flames President and CEO John Bean. “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.”

The Flames kick off the regular season on the road in Colorado tonight. Their home opener is this Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks.
