Maple Leafs name Dubas assistant GM
Kyle Dubas was named assistant general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who recognized the 28-year-old as a rising personnel man while clearing out assistant general manager Claude Loiselle and vice president of hockey operations Dave Poulin, general manager Dave Nonis' right-hand men in the organization.
"Kyle is a young executive that has made a strong name for himself in hockey with a progressive style, work ethic and maturation beyond his years," said Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan. "He has a fresh approach that we feel will benefit our club for years to come."
Dubas spent the past three seasons as general manager of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and was a scout for the team while attending Brock University. He was hired as general manager while serving as a player agent, but left that career to be involved in team personnel.
