The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that Kyle Dubas has been named general manager.

Dubas, 32, has been serving as assistant GM of the Maple Leafs and general manager of the AHL’s Toronto Marlies since 2014.

The Marlies won the Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy as the AHL’s regular-season champions in 2017-18 — their second such honor in three years — and are preparing to play in the Eastern Conference Finals beginning next week. In Dubas’s four seasons as Marlies general manager, the team has a record of 190-90-20-4 with two division titles and two conference finals appearances.

Eight members of the 2017-18 Toronto Maple Leafs final roster (Connor Brown, Connor Carrick, Travis Dermott, Zach Hyman, Andreas Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen, Josh Leivo and William Nylander) developed with the Marlies during Dubas’s tenure.
