CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Former Calgary Flames part-owner Harley Hotchkiss has died. He was 83.

The team confirmed the death of Hotchkiss, who had prostate cancer, on Wednesday.

Hotchkiss was part of the group that bought the Atlanta Flames and moved them to Calgary in 1980. Calgary won the Stanley Cup in 1989.

Hotchkiss, who served as chairman of the NHL's board of governors from 1995 to 2007, sold his minority stake in the Flames this season. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.

Hotchkiss and NHL Players' Association president Trevor Linden tried to prevent a season-long lockout in 2004-05, but didn't succeed.
