TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs have hired Kyle Dubas as their new assistant general manager.

He replaces Claude Loiselle, who is leaving the team along with vice-president of hockey operations Dave Poulin.

The Leafs say the moves are part of “front-office restructuring.”

The 28-year-old Dubas was the youngest GM in OHL history when he was appointed to the Greyhounds position in 2011.

Leafs president Brendan Shanahan says he’ll bring a “fresh approach” to the Toronto front office.
