Calgary Flames split with coach Brent Sutter
Brent Sutter out as coach of Calgary Flames; team failed to make playoffs in his 3 seasons
By The Associated Press

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) ' Brent Sutter is out as coach of the Calgary Flames, who failed to make the playoffs in his three seasons with the team.

The decision came Thursday after a meeting between general manager Jay Feaster and Sutter, whose contract was to expire at the end of June.

"Brent and I explored many options and ultimately determined that it is best to proceed in different directions," Feaster said. "Brent is a great person and an excellent hockey coach."



Calgary also announced that the contract of assistant coach Dave Lowry will not be renewed.

The Flames narrowly missed the postseason in all three years under Sutter, compiling a 118-90-38 record overall. Calgary went 37-29-16 this season, second to Vancouver in the Northwest Division.

Sutter's resume also includes a two-year stint with the New Jersey Devils and a seven-year run with the Red Deer Rebels, the Western Hockey League team he continues to own.

He was hired by the Flames in June 2009 when brother Darryl was the GM. Feaster replaced Darryl Sutter in December 2010.

"After discussions with Jay since the season ended, it was in the best interest of the organization and myself to part ways," Sutter said. "I wish the Calgary Flames all the best."
