Just a few weeks after making the decision to fire Kyle Dubas, it appears like the Toronto Maple Leafs will soon have a new general manager.
All indications point to the Leafs hiring former Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving, according to a report from TSN’s Darren Dreger. He posted this earlier tonight on Twitter:
“We updated the Toronto Maple Leafs GM search earlier tonight Insider Trading. More specifically, all signs now point to the search wrapping up in the very near future with Brad Treliving being named as the new GM.”
The 53-year-old native of British Columbia joined the Flames in April 2014 as their general manager, a position that he held until the end of this season. During his tenure in Calgary, they reached the playoffs five times, which included two postseason victories over the Vancouver Canucks (2015) and Dallas Stars (2022) respectively.
He was a founding member of the Western Professional League and later served as Don Maloney’s assistant general manager for the Phoenix Coyotes.
Other possibilities that the Leafs reportedly explored included Jason Botterill, Marc Bergevin, and Peter Chiarelli.
