Flames AGM, Chris Snow, Passes Away From ALS

The hockey community mourns the loss of Chris Snow, the Assistant General Manager for the Flames, who tragically succumbed to ALS on Saturday. He was just 42.

Snow's significant contribution to the NHL began in 2006, including a notable four-year tenure with the Minnesota Wild before he made his mark with the Flames in 2010.


Brad Treliving, previously with Calgary and now serving as the GM for the Maple Leafs, shared a touching tribute to his close friend.

Brad Treliving Remembers Chris Snow


Since 2014, Treliving and Snow shared a professional bond in Calgary.

In his poignant statement, the Leafs GM expressed:

"I am devastated by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Chris Snow. 'Snowy' was a true example of strength, courage, grit, and compassion.

Beyond being an exceptional colleague, he was a cherished friend who deeply impacted our lives. His intellect was matched only by his incredible kindness, thoughtfulness, and unwavering love and devotion to his family and friends.

Chris inspired us all as he faced the relentless battle with ALS head-on, refusing to let it define him or derail his spirit.

On behalf of my family and the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, we send our thoughts and prayers to his beloved wife Kelsie, his son Cohen, and his daughter Willa during this unimaginably difficult time. May they find comfort in knowing Chris's legacy of love, strength, and love will forever endure."

Our deepest condolences go out to the Snow family in these trying times.
