NHL franchise legend may be Joining the Maple Leafs Front Office

Published June 4, 2023 at 3:03 PM
The transition from Kyle Dubas to Brad Treliving as GM was a significant change for the Toronto Maple Leafs. However, according to one insider, the team might not be finished yet.

Another Well-Known Name?

Nick Kypreos suggests that there has been considerable discussion about the Leafs pursuing Shane Doan for their front office. He does not specify the role Doan might take on, but Doan's experience alone could significantly benefit Toronto.


An Impressive Resume

Doan was drafted by the first iteration of the Winnipeg Jets and played for the team throughout his entire NHL career, even after it became the Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes.

He holds several franchise records, including the most career points (942), the most goals (402), and the most games played (1540). Since retiring in 2017, Doan has maintained various roles with the Coyotes and now serves as the team's Chief Hockey Development Officer. He also has extensive experience on the international stage, both as a player and an executive.

As a player, he won two gold medals and three silvers with Team Canada and most recently served as the team's General Manager.

If Doan takes on a role with the Maple Leafs, it's likely to be a prominent one. He is well-liked by fans, players, and reporters alike and would make an excellent representative for the front office.
