Leafs' hiring of Kyle Dubas as asst GM signals shift to analytics

Toronto, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - The Toronto Maple Leafs' hiring of Kyle Dubas as assistant general manager signaled utilization of analytics under new president Brendan Shanahan.
The 28-year-old Dubas replaced Dave Poulin and Claude Loiselle, who were fired.
As general manager of the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, Dubas was progressive in his use of analytics in developing systems and roster construction.
"We want our players to solve problems and make plays with the puck. ... One-hundred years of history will show you that the best way [to score goals] is to outshoot teams and get more shot attempts," said Dubas in describing his playing philosophy.
Dubas was one of the youngest GMs in the OHL and the youngest agent ever certified by the NHL Players' Association.
