The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced Mark Hunter as a new Assistant General Manager.
Hunter first joined the Leafs as Director of Player Personnel in October 2014 and will share the role along with current Assistant General Manager Kyle Dubas.
GM Lou Lamoriello says “Mark’s new title is essentially a formality as these are duties he’s already been performing.”
He says “Brendan and I have been discussing this change of title since last season – as it’s a more appropriate recognition of Mark’s role with the organization since joining the Maple Leafs.
Hunter will continue to oversee the Maple Leafs’ pro scouting, amateur scouting and player evaluation departments while Dubas will continue as General Manager of the Toronto Marlies, overseeing all prospects within the club’s system, while also leading the Maple Leafs’ player development and hockey research & development departments.
