A reliable source tells CTV Calgary Wednesday night that former Toronto Maple Leafs president and GM Brian Burke is joining the Calgary Flames organization.
What role the 58-year-old will assume in Calgary has not been announced. The social media site Twitter lit up Wednesday afternoon with tweets circulating that Burke could be joining the Calgary Flames and that he was expected in Calgary that evening.
According to the official AJHL Lloydminster Bobcats website, Burke is expected to take part in its Evening of Champions Fundraiser Dinner Thursday night.
