Today the Calgary Flames hired Jon Lemoine as the clubs new assistant general manager. "I look forward to working very closely with Matt. I will be looking over the organization and submitting a report over the weekend on what types of things I think we can do moving forward" said Lemoine.
Lemoine brings with him a winnign attitude and dedication as he has won Championships and GM of the year awards in other leagues. This hiring should benefit the Flames both in scouting and at the pro level.
The Flames are extremely happy to announce the addition of Jon Lemoine as the Assistant General Manager of the club.
With little time for HFNHL involvement at the moment, Jon assistance will be very valuable in the upcoming months. The Flames are presently searching for an opportunity to snag a first round draft pick in 2010 - and are offering at a minimum their 2011 1st Round pick. They are also looking for a few additions to the playing staff to add to a playoff run and deciding on the futures of Brian Rafalski and Jason Arnott, who may be moved prior to the trade deadline.
Thanks guys. As Matt said we are looking to add a first round pick in the upcoming 2010 draft. Also possibly add some roster players for the playoff drive. Not sure either of Rafalski or Arnott will be moved, but if you want give it a shot.
