A former National Hockey League enforcer is set to begin the next chapter in his hockey career. 

A report form the Calgary Flames official website has revealed that 36-year-old Brian McGratton has been given a role in the Flames player development program, one where he is expected to provide both support and guidance.

The Flames believe that McGratton, who played in 10 NHL seasons and in 137 games for the Flames, will be a suitable mentor for their players both on the ice and off the ice as well. 

The news comes on the heel of Sean O'Brien being promoted to Director of Team Operations, although it's unclear at this time if the two moves are connected or not.
