CALGARY, Alta. – Brad Pascall, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and national teams, has stepped down from his position to accept a senior management role with the NHL’s Calgary Flames.
Pascall was announced as the Flames’ new assistant general manager earlier today by general manager Brad Treliving.
Pascall, a native of Coquitlam, B.C., has been with Hockey Canada since 1996, and vice-president of hockey operations and national teams since July 2010. In this role, he led operations for all of Canada’s national men’s teams in international competition, including the Olympic Winter Games, IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, Spengler Cup and Deutschland Cup. He also oversaw operations for Canada’s National Junior Team and Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team at various times.
Pascall was a key member of numerous successful Canadian teams during his tenure, including five consecutive gold medals at the IIHF World Junior Championship (2005-09), three Olympic gold medals (2002, 2010, 2014), the 2004 World Cup of Hockey and two IIHF World Championship gold medals (2003, 2004). His final day at Hockey Canada will be June 16, 2014.
“First and foremost, I want to thank Brad for his contributions to Hockey Canada over the past 18 years. Brad played a prominent role in the development of our high performance department, and was integral in the growth of our communications department, which he led for 10 years,” said Scott Smith, Hockey Canada’s chief operating officer. “On behalf of the staff of Hockey Canada and the board of directors, I want to wish Brad, Cassie and Brooke all the best going forward. We are very proud of Brad, and know he will be a great addition to the Calgary Flames.”
