The boy wonder is moving on and up.
Kyle Dubas is leaving the Soo Greyhounds for the Toronto Maple Leafs, HockeyNewsNorth.com confirmed this morning.
The 28-year old Dubas has been hired by the Maple Leafs as their new assistant general manager.
Dubas replaces Claude Loiselle as assistant GM of the storied National Hockey League franchise.
Dubas was hired by the Greyhounds in 2011 and at age 25, became one the youngest general managers in Ontario Hockey League history.
Brendan Shanahan, the recently-hired president of the Maple Leafs, said Dubas will bring “a fresh approach” to Toronto.
“Kyle is a young executive who has made a strong name for himself in hockey with a progressive style, work ethic and maturation beyond his years,” said Shanahan.
Dubas said the opportunity to work for the Maple Leafs is “a dream come true.
“I’m truly excited to begin helping this team win and to learn from men like Brendan Shanahan and (Leafs GM) Dave Nonis,” added Dubas. “I am very thankful for the opportunity and equally grateful to the Greyhound organization for helping put me in this position.”
