FLAMES FIRE GM FEASTER, ASSISTANT GM WEISBROD

The Calgary Flames shook up their front office Thursday after a disappointing start to the season, firing general manager Jay Feaster and assistant general manager John Weisbrod.

The Flames have just 26 points this season, good for 13th place in the 14-team Western Conference.

Brian Burke, the team’s president of hockey operations, will serve as acting general manager. He said the search for Feaster’s replacement is underway.

Burke felt the moves needed to be made to get the franchise back on track as it tries to pursue a championship.

“I wouldn’t have come here if that wasn’t the ultimate goal,” he said. “I have to look at the steps that have been taken and figure out what’s the best way for us to get on that path.
