According to the Canadian Press, the Calgary Flames have parted ways with Assistant Coach Craig Hartsburg.
Hartsburg was the Flames Associate Coach for the 2011-12 season, but had his job title changed to assistant coach shortly after the Calgary Flames named Bob Hartley their Head Coach on May 31.
Hartley hired Jacques Cloutier as his top assistant coach on June 5 and plans to name one more assistant coach before training camp is set to begin.
Hartsburg has previous head coaching experience with the Chicago Blackhawks, Ottawa Senators and Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
The move comes as no surprise as normally in the National Hockey League today the head coach has significant power in choosing his assistants. With Hartsburg being the associate head coach last year and the Flames missing the playoffs, it looked like it would be a matter of time before he would have had the ax as well.
