CALGARY Adidas Ian

, Alberta (AP) The Calgary Flames have hired Bill
Peters as the team’s head coach.The Flames introduced Peters at a news
conference on Monday at Scotiabank Saddledome. The 53-year-old from Three Hills,
Alberta, resigned as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday after four
seasons and a year remaining on his contract.The Flames fired Glen Gulutzan and
assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Gerrard last week after missing the playoffs
with a 37-35-10 record.In his NHL head coaching debut, Peters went 137-138-53
with the Hurricanes but wasn’t able to get the team into the playoffs.Carolina
was looking for a new general manager as Ron Francis was reassigned within the
organization, so Peters’ tenure there would have eventually been subject to the
new GM’s approval.Peters is Calgary general manager Brad Treliving’s second head
coaching hire after Gulutzan, and the fourth coach of the Flames in nine years
after Gulutzan (2016-17) Bob Hartley (2012-16) and Brent Sutter (2009-12).”I
think it’s a very good team and I think it’s a team that’s set up to win and
play the modern game,” Peters said.”What I talk about the modern game, when you
watch the playoffs, you need defense up in the rush, you need offense from your
defense. We’re going to be able to do that with what we have.”The majority of
the core is still in their prime and still has room to grow and a higher ceiling
to be reached. There’s lots to work with and that’s exciting.”Calgary has
finished outside the playoffs seven of the past nine years.Peters was the head
coach and Treliving one of the general managers of the Canadian team that won
gold at the 2016 men’s world hockey championship in Russia.Treliving had asked
the Hurricanes for permission to speak to Peters last week about coming to
Calgary. The GM said he didn’t talk to any other candidates.”This is an
individual I’m familiar with,” Treliving said. ”I was focused on Bill. It’s
based upon seeing and living it live with him over albeit a short period of
time.”He’s prepared. I think he’s a student of the modern game. I think he’s
relationship driven with players. He’s honest and direct.”Peters is coaching
Canada again at the world championship May 4-20 in Copenhagen, Denmark.After
leading the Spokane Chiefs to Western Hockey League and Memorial Cup
championships in 2008 Adidas
