Kyle Dubas Named Maple Leafs GM After Lou Lamoriello's Firing

Kyle Dubas Named Maple Leafs GM After Lou Lamoriello's Firing

Brendan Shanahan, President and Alternate Governor of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced today that Lou Lamoriello will not return next season as General Manager of the Maple Leafs.

Dubas joined the team as assistant GM in July 2014.

Lamoriello shifted to the role of senior adviser last month.

Before joining the Leafs, Dubas served as GM of the Sault Ste.

Dubas worked with the Leafs in player personnel before Hunter arrived from the OHL London Knights to take some of those duties, but was mostly responsible for the AHL Marlies. Toronto went 49-26-7 during the 2017-18 regular season to finish third in the Atlantic division with 105 points, but was eliminated by the Boston Bruins in seven games in the first round of the playoffs.

In Dubas' four seasons as Marlies general manager, the affiliate developed eight players on the current Maple Leafs roster: Connor Brown, Connor Carrick, Travis Dermott, Zach Hyman, Andreas Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen, Josh Leivo and William Nylander. The affiliate has sent several players to the current Leafs roster in his time, won 54 games this season and is now in the AHL playoffs, with a chance to win the Calder Cup. Hunter, who is given credit for the Leafs improved scouting and talent evaluation, has aspirations to be a GM and it is unknown whether he will remain with Toronto with Dubas in charge or will leave the club in the near future, which could also cause a significant changeover in the Leafs scouting department as well. Gord Stellick became the league's then-youngest general manager at 30 when he was hired as GM in April 1988.
