Calgary, AB (Sports Network) - The Calgary Flames have named Brian Burke the
club's president of hockey operations.
Burke was most recently a part-time scout with the Anaheim Ducks after being
fired as the general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs in January. Toronto
failed to reach the postseason during his four years at the helm.
The long-time NHL front office veteran has also been in charge of hockey
operations with the Hartford Whalers, Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim, winning a
Stanley Cup title with the Ducks in the spring of 2007.
