Who Will Be the Next Maple Leafs General Manager?
After yet another disappointing finish to their season, the Toronto Maple Leafs made the decision to clean house which included the dismissal of longtime general manager, Kyle Dubas.

Next Toronto Maple Leafs GM Odds
(Odds Courtesy of FanDuel Ontario Sportsbook as of May 23rd, 2023)
Brad Treliving (+195)
The leading candidate to land the job as the next Maple Leafs general manager, former-Calgary Flames GM, Brad Treliving could be in for a quick turnaround in his job search this summer. After mutually agreeing to art ways with the Flames after failing to qualify for the 2023 NHL Playoffs, Treliving could be the next leader of the Leafs brass.
With ample experience working within a large hockey market, the adjustment period for Treliving could be easier than for many other outsides hires. Treliving found moderate success in his time at the helm of the Flames, winning two division titles as well as advancing through the first round of the playoffs twice.
While he wasn’t able to take his former team to the promised land after attempting a risky gamble in the offseason that saw Trevling ship off star player Matthew Tkachuk, in exchange for Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weeger, and Connor Schmidt, you can’t argue Trelivings determination to win.
Looking to build off of the success established in Toronto in the wake of Dubas departure from the team, by hiring Treliving we could see some major personnel changes made to next years Leafs roster. With plenty of experience in the position, Treliving is a great look for anyone interested in wagering on the next Maple Leafs GM odds.
Eric Tulsky (+350)
One of the hottest names appearing across the league in terms of potential landing spots for teams in need of a new general manager, current Carolina Hurricanes assistant GM, Eric Tulsky is sure to have several suitors including the Maple Leafs, vying for his services in the 2023-2024 season.
An integral part in building a powerhouse in the Eastern Conference, Tulsky has had his praises sung around the NHL with many crediting him with having a sensational mind for the game and in roster construction. With the Hurricanes having won back-to-back divisional titles as well as having deep postseason runs during Tulsky’s two seasons as an assistant general manager, the proof is in the pudding of his potential.
Fitting a similar bill to that of Kyle Dubas when he was brought in to lead the Charge for the Maple Leafs in 2018, with a fresh perspective on how to win in the modern era of the NHL, Tulsky may be the person that could finally help the Maple Leafs get over the hump and find their way back to the Stanley Cup.
The Maple Leafs will surely take a run at acquiring him in the offseason but Tulsky is already being looked at as a serious candidate by other teams such as the Pittsburgh Penguins. The cards may be in his hands now, we now must await the final flop. At +350 odds Tulsky is a great bet for anyone wagering on the next Maple Leafs GM odds.
Brandon Pridham (+750)
In what could possibly be the smoothest transition for any potential new hire for the next Maple Leafs general manager, current interim GM, Brandon Pridham may be next in line to lead the charge for the Leafs.
Having worked in the Maple Leafs front office for four seasons, Pridham was promoted by former general manager, Kyle Dubas in May of 2018 to the position of assistant general manager. Having had a major part of the recent successes for the Maple Leafs, no other candidate being looked at for this position knows this team better than Pridham.
This could be both a blessing as well as a curse for Pridham’s chances of becoming the next Maple Leafs general manager as he would be able to seamlessly transition into the bigger role, but would carryover much of the philosophy and mindset possessed by Dubas which would result in little to no real change in terms of team culture.
While his current interim role does not give him an advantage over the field of candidates interested in the Maple Leafs general manger position, his current odds of +750 are a great look for any bettor. One of the safest bets you can make on the next Maple Leafs GM odds, keep a close eye on Brandon Pridham this offseason as he potentially takes the next step up the corporate ladded with the Maple Leafs.
