Veteran hockey executive Brian Burke was named the team’s president of hockey operations, and will “assume overall responsibility of the sport side of the Calgary Flames.” That means that GM Jay Feaster will report to Burke.
I actually like this move, I can’t see why two heads would not be better than one.
“I think I add a value. I’ve been able to fix just about every team I’ve worked for, sometimes quicker than others. There was a lot that needed to be done in Toronto that took longer than I thought,” Burke said.
Ken King unfortunately remains employed by the Flames.
