“Kyle Dubas Joins Team Canada After Pittsburgh Penguins Miss NHL Playoffs

After his Pittsburgh Penguins fell just shy of making it to the NHL playoffs, Kyle Dubas has shifted his focus to joining Team Canada for the upcoming world hockey championship. This new opportunity marks Dubas’ international debut as an associate general manager on GM Rick Nash’s staff.

A Rising Talent in Hockey Management

Hailing from Sault Ste. Marie, Dubas recently wrapped up his first season as the general manager and president of hockey operations for the Penguins. Despite a valiant effort that saw the Penguins make a late push towards the playoffs, they ultimately finished three points behind Washington for the Eastern Conference’s second wild-card spot.

Before his stint with the Penguins, Dubas spent nine seasons within the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, serving as the general manager for five of those years. Notably, he led the Toronto Marlies to a Calder Cup victory in 2018 during his tenure as GM of the team.

Dubas’ journey in hockey management began humbly, as a teenage dressing room attendant for the Soo Greyhounds. Through hard work and dedication, he steadily climbed the ranks to eventually become the general manager of the Hounds.

Looking Ahead to the World Championship

Canada is set to kick off its world championship campaign on May 11 against Britain in Prague, Czechia. Dubas will be bringing his wealth of experience and strategic insights to Team Canada as they aim for success on an international stage.


As Kyle Dubas transitions from the NHL to international competition, his presence on Team Canada adds a fresh perspective and new energy to the front office team. With his proven track record of success and dedication to the sport, Dubas is poised to make a significant impact as Canada vies for victory in the world hockey championship.”
