Dubas named Leafs new GM

Maple Leafs appoint Dubas as new GM

It's a brand new era for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Dubas joined the Maple Leafs as a 28-year-old in July 2014 to work under then-GM Dave Nonis following a successful stint as GM of the OHL's Sault Ste. He will appear later today on Overdrive on TSN 1050 Toronto, which will stream on TSN.ca.

Dubas has been an advocate of speed and skill, for analytics blended with fresh thinking. He succeeds the 75-year-old Lamoriello, a grizzled veteran of the league who is no stranger to building championship franchises.

When asked how close he came to leaving the Maple Leafs organization, Dubas explained team president Brendan Shanahan shut down talks before things got very far. Lamoriello had said April 30 he planned on honoring his contract with the Maple Leafs, which said he would become a special advisor after three years as GM. With the Leafs, Dubas shared interim GM responsibilities with fellow Asst. Marie Greyhounds in the Ontario Hockey League.


The Marlies were AHL regular season champions this season for second time in three years.

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.

"Certainly, Mark is qualified to be a general manager", said Shanahan "He's qualified to do this job, if I had chosen Mark to do this job".

Mark Hunter had joined the team nearly four years earlier, accepting the newly created title of director of player personnel as part of a sweeping change Shanahan was making to the front office. Stellick started with the team when he was 17.
