“We have contemplated additional hockey management resources for sometime,” said Sutter. “We are pleased to have someone of Jay’s experience and track record become part of our executive group. He will make important contributions to our organization.”
Feaster joins Senior Vice President & Assistant General Manager Michael Holditch as central figures with the Flames hockey management group.
“I am very pleased to join such a first-class organization as the Flames, and I truly welcome the opportunity to work with Darryl and his entire hockey department staff,” said Feaster. “Having managed in the NHL, there were not many situations that would have been attractive in an AGM role; however, the minute Darryl phoned me I was ready to sign-on. My family and I look forward to making Calgary our new home."
