Sportsnet is reporting the Toronto Maple Leafs have promoted Kyle Dubas to be their new general manager.

Dubas has been an advocate of speed and skill, for analytics blended with fresh thinking. In addition, eight Marlies' players that developed while Dubas was the GM were on the Leafs' final roster before a Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins in round one ended their season: William Nylander, Josh Leivo, Kasperi Kapanen, Connor Carrick, Connor Brown, Zach Hyman, Travis Dermott, and Andreas Johnsson. Most expected President Brendan Shanahan to choose Dubas or Mark Hunter, another assistant GM with the team.

"It was a hard decision in that we had two such qualified people", Shanahan said during the press conference.

Emergency Management B.C. will work with Pelmorex and wireless carriers across the province to fix the issue, Lightbody said. Problems were also encountered in other Western Canadian provinces, though the test seemed to go smoothly in Atlantic Canada.

Dubas sees a full slate ahead of him immediately, including focusing on the upcoming National Hockey League draft and making moves regarding the Leafs' restricted and unrestricted free agents.

Kyle Dubas is younger than that, sure, with 33 coming up later this fall. And Dubas foresees no issues in making that transition. In fact, Dubas said he relied on Lamoriello for support then. I think the way he's perceived is that he's very open to ideas, he's very open to change, he's very open to trying to make the Leafs better, and that's really his only focus.

Firstly, the new GM is only 32 years old, which makes him the second-youngest at his position in the National Hockey League - just four years older than the Arizona Coyotes' John Chayka and a whopping 43 years younger than Lamoriello, under whom he served as an assistant to the GM starting in 2015.

The New York Islanders are reportedly talking Lou Lamoriello about potentially joining their front office. "It gives me great pride to announce Kyle as the new GM".
