CALGARY, Alberta — The Calgary Flames announced a multiyear contract extension for general manager Brad Treliving on Thursday, hours before their season opener against Colorado.

He is entering his sixth season in the job. While with the team, Calgary has made the playoffs three times and had a record of 212-163-35. The team’s longest playoff run under Treliving was reaching the second round in 2015.

The Flames had their second-highest point total last season with 107 points to top the Western Conference. But Calgary quickly exited the playoffs, falling in five games to Colorado.

Flames President and CEO John Bean says Treliving has done an “excellent job putting a team together on and off the ice.” He adds in a statement that “continuity is important in this role” and Treliving has “earned the trust and respect of our ownership group and our fans.”
