Kyle Dubas has left as general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The team said Friday it was saying goodbye to the 37-year-old, whose contract was due to expire on June 30.
The Leafs won a playoff series for the first time in nearly two decades this spring when they defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning before bowing out to the underdog Florida Panthers in a disappointing second-round run.

An emotional Dubas said at his end-of-season press conference that he was unsure if he would continue as GM, citing the stress on his young family.
Dubas joined the Leafs in 2014 as an assistant GM at age 28 in 2014 and led the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League to a Calder Cup title in 2017-18.
He took over as Toronto general manager from Lou Lamoriello in May 2018 as part of a succession plan led by team president Brendan Shanahan.
