CALGARY – The Calgary Flames hired Don Maloney as a pro scout Wednesday.

Before heading to Arizona, Maloney, a native of Lindsay, Ont., spent 10 seasons with the New York Rangers front office.

Maloney played 13 NHL seasons with the Rangers, Hartford and New York Islanders, registering 564 points (214 goals, 350 assists) in 765 regular-season games. He added 57 points (22 goals, 35 assists) in 94 career playoff contests.
