MAJOR | Kyle Dubas under review by NHL Players' Association

Published May 25, 2023 at 12:46

The National Hockey League Players' Association confirmed to Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff on Thursday that they are reviewing former Toronto Maple Leafs General Manager Kyle Dubas for a potential violation due to his relationship with his agent.

Their investigation has to do with the fact that Dubas' agent works for Wasserman Hockey, who also represent Auston Matthews, Sam Lafferty, as well as a couple of Maple Leafs prospects.

According to the National Hockey League's Bylaws, a player agent is not allowed to represent both a management figure as well as a player. Dubas' agent Chris Armstrong is not certified by the NHLPA, so it's unlikely that he'll be subject any discipline.

A current player agent spoke with Frank Seravalli and said that this situation is clearly prohibited under the rules.

"This is clearly prohibited under the regulations," the agent said. "It is an unwritten, understood and longstanding practice that your guy down the hall doesn't work for the other side. I'd like the NHLPA to launch an investigation and draw their own conclusion."

Dubas, 37, was let go by the Maple Leafs last Friday after five years as their General Manager. It's unclear where Dubas will end up, but on Tuesday night, he was in Pittsburgh to meet with members of the organization, as well as captain Sidney Crosby.
