Soo Greyhounds have hired 28-year old Kyle Raftis as their new general manager, multiple sources have confirmed to HockeyNewsNorth.com.
Raftis was previously the Ontario Hockey League’s director of recruiting, education service and player development.
A former Ontario Hockey League defenceman with the Oshawa Generals, Kingston Frontenacs and Peterborough Petes, Raftis will replace Kyle Dubas as general manager of the Greyhounds.
Dubas recently left the Greyhounds after three seasons to become the assistant general manager with the National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs.
Of note, when Raftis played for Oshawa, the Generals assistant coach was Joe Cirella. Cirella is now the Greyhounds associate coach.
