Marc Bergevin returning to the NHL soon? An unexpected team enters the picture

Published May 16, 2023 at 9:36

With the recent wave of firings across the NHL, following disappointing seasons for some league teams, Marc Bergevin's name has resurfaced in rumors.

While he currently holds an advisory role with the Los Angeles Kings, everything seems to indicate that the former Canadiens' GM still has an appealing resume for the teams in the Bettman circuit. It's more likely than ever that he could soon find work as an executive.

We have heard the possibility that he could be hired in Pittsburgh soon, but this wouldn't be the only destination catching Bergevin's eye.

Indeed, as insider Elliotte Friedman recently confirmed on podcast 32 Thoughts his name has also been mentioned in connection with the Calgary Flames.

Let's remember that the organization made sweeping changes at the end of the season, with the GM and the head coach not returning next year.

With a team that's supposed to be in its prime and has good elements to be competitive, does a candidate like Bergevin make sense for Calgary?

He has always been solid in making good trades to help his team in the short and medium term. It was primarily development where he fell short, but the organization already has a pool of interesting young players, along with a lineup with several talented individuals.

He could potentially become an interesting element as an executive for the Flames.
