GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Phoenix Coyotes have signed assistant general manager Brad Treliving to a multi-year contract extension.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Treliving, who also serves as vice president of hockey operations, has been Phoenix's assistant GM since 2007. He also serves as general manager for the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates.
The 43-year-old Treliving served seven years as president of the Central Hockey League before arriving in Arizona. He also co-founded the Western Professional Hockey League in 1996 and served as its vice president and director of hockey operations for five seasons.
Phoenix recently signed GM Don Maloney to a long-term deal, but has yet to sign coach Dave Tippett, who is waiting for clarity on the franchise's ownership situation.
