The Pittsburgh Penguins' President of Hockey Operations got hired by Team Canada for the upcoming World Championship!

With the Men's WC set to start in less than a month, team rosters are expected to be released soon, and the organization just announced a new executive hiring.

Indeed, Kyle Dubas will join Team Canada as Associate General Manager. He will work with Rick Nash, who was named GM a few weeks ago.

It was also announced that Jim McKenzie, Tim Taylor and Jamie Pushor were joining the team.


"CALGARY, Alberta – Hockey Canada has announced that Kyle Dubas (Sault Ste. Marie, ON/Pittsburgh, NHL) has been named to the management group that will help build Canada's National Men's Team for the 2024 IIHF World Championship, May 10-26 in Prague and Ostrava, Czechia.

Dubas will make his international management debut as associate general manager, and will work alongside Rick Nash (Brampton, ON/Columbus, NHL), who was named general manager last month. He was selected by Nash, with input from Scott Salmond (Creston, BC), senior vice-president of high performance and hockey operations, Doug Armstrong (Sarnia, ON/St. Louis, NHL), management group lead for Canada's National Men's Team, and player relations advisor Ryan Getzlaf (Regina, SK/Anaheim, NHL).

In addition, a selection committee of three NHL executives – Jim McKenzie (Gull Lake, SK/Vegas, NHL), Jamie Pushor (Lethbridge, AB/Tampa Bay, NHL) and Tim Taylor (Stratford, ON/St. Louis, NHL) - will assist with evaluating and selecting players for the 2024 IIHF World Championship."
