Vice President of Hockey Operations & Assistant General Manager
Brad Treliving enters his seventh season as Assistant General Manager after being named to the position on July 18, 2007. As Vice President of Hockey Operations, Treliving works closely with General Manager Don Maloney on the day-to-day administration of the Coyotes’ hockey operations. Treliving also serves as General Manager of the club’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Portland Pirates.
In his role, Treliving is consulted on all team personnel decisions and manages the amateur and pro scouting staffs and other administrative duties assigned by the general manager. Treliving is also responsible for all player personnel assignments with the team’s minor league affiliates.
Treliving guided the Pirates to a 41-30-3-2 record and a sixth place finish in the Eastern Conference in 2012-13 to qualify for the Calder Cup playoffs. Under his watch, Portland has registered a 77-61-7-7 record in its two seasons as the Coyotes AHL affiliate.
In his first season as GM of the San Antonio Rampage, Treliving oversaw a club that qualified for the Calder Cup playoffs for the first time since its inaugural season of 2002-03. The Rampage finished the 2007-08 regular season with a record of 42-28-3-7 for 94 points, marking the third-highest point total ever by a Coyotes AHL affiliate.
Treliving, 44, joined the Coyotes after serving as the President of the Central Hockey League (CHL) for seven years. During his tenure, Treliving guided the CHL to remarkable growth and development. Numerous successful expansion franchises were introduced including the Arizona Sundogs in Prescott Valley who began play in a new arena in 2006-07. That season, the CHL led all North American “AA” professional hockey leagues in attendance for the sixth consecutive campaign.
Treliving co-founded the Western Professional Hockey League (WPHL) in 1996 and served as the league’s Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations for five seasons. The native of Penticton, British Columbia played an integral role in the merger of the WPHL and the CHL in May 2001 upon which he began his tenure as President of the league.
Prior to his front office career, Treliving played five professional hockey seasons from 1990-91 to 1994-95 including stints with the Indianapolis Ice of the International Hockey League (IHL) and both the New Haven and Prince Edward Island Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL).
