Cross one of the most intriguing names on the potential general manager market off the list.

The Calgary Flames have inked GM Brad Treliving to a multi-year contract extension, the club announced Monday.

“We are striving to create a level of continuity and stability, as all successful teams do,” Flames president of hockey operations Brian Burke said in a release.

“Today’s announcement is another step forward for our organization on that path,” Burke added. “Under Brad’s leadership, we have seen progress over the past three seasons and look forward to building on that growth in the coming years.”

Calgary has gone 125-103-18 in his GM tenure, qualifying for the playoffs in two of Treliving’s three campaigns.

He’s shown little hesitation shaping and securing the team’s talented core since taking over in April 2014.

Treliving signed dynamic young star Johnny Gaudreau to a six-year extension in October, less than two months after getting 21-year-old center Sean Monahan signed to a seven-year pact.

He also locked up captain Mark Giordano through 2021-22, and got defensemen T.J. Brodie and Dougie Hamilton secured through 2019-20 and 2020-21, respectively.

Treliving got Hamilton from the Boston Bruins in exchange for three picks at the 2015 draft.

The GM acquired veteran goaltender Brian Elliott from the St. Louis Blues at the draft last June. He selected promising center Sam Bennett fourth overall in 2014 and took physical young forward Matthew Tkachuk sixth overall in 2016.

Before joining the Flames, Treliving spent seven years with the Arizona Coyotes as their assistant general manager and vice-president of hockey operations.
