Mirtle: Kyle Dubas won't be defined by hockey's archaic analytics debate

The Maple Leafs' search for a new GM didn't last very long, as team president Brendan Shanahan announced Friday Marlies GM and Leafs' assistant GM Kyle Dubas would be promoted to take the position. "They're trying to keep it as hush-hush as possible, but the sense is out there - from the sources I'm talking to anyway - that there is dialogue that's happening between Lou Lamoriello and the New York Islanders". Lamoriello's son, Chris, now serves as the Islanders' assistant general manager. He will appear later today on Overdrive on TSN 1050 Toronto, which will stream on TSN.ca. But Dubas knows the organization as well as anyone, and his ability to build bridges when it comes to hockey's major modern philosophical debate - analytics vs.an "old-school", eyeball-test approach - appealed to Shanahan, who gave Dubas a five-year contract as GM. Toronto made Lamoriello's shift from general manager to special advisor complete earlier in the day by promoting promoted Kyle Dubas 32 to general manager. With the Leafs, Dubas shared interim GM responsibilities with fellow Asst.

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

In 2015, Forbes named Dubas among the sports industry's young stars in its annual Top 30 Under 30 in Sports.
