June 6,2014(ISN) – 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.”
