Kyle Dubas is gone.
The Maple Leafs announcing they’re ”parting ways” with the 37-year-old general manager, whose contract was set to expire June 30th.

An emotional Dubas said at his end-of-season news conference earlier in the week that he wasn’t sure if he would stay on, citing the stress on his young family.

He joined the Leafs in 2014 as an assistant GM and managed the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies to a Calder Cup title in 2017-18.

Dubas then took over as Leafs GM from Lou Lamoriello in 2018, as part of a succession plan under team president Brendan Shanahan.

Shanahan says he decided it was best to find another general manager despite getting an e-mail from Dubas last evening saying he wanted to stay.
”At that point if I’m being honest, I had gotten to a different place about how I felt about the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs and what was best,” added Shanahan.
