NHL Insider Pierre LeBrun Predicts Who'll be the Next General Manager of Team Canada

In his latest paper, Pierre Lebrun of The Athletic talked about the top candidate to be Team Canada's GM if the World Cup of Hockey takes place in 2025 or if NHL players participate in the 2026 Olympics, Doug Armstrong seems to be the top choice.

"My understanding is that St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong, the GM of the 2016 World Cup champion team and GM of the would-be 2022 Team Canada had NHLers gone to China, is the front-runner to run Team Canada again.

Armstrong's credentials are impressive. He recently served as Canada's GM during the World Hockey Championships in Finland. Plus, under his leadership, the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup in 2019.


LeBrun Suggests Potential New Faces in Team Canada's Front Office



Pierre LeBrun also mentionned that Team Canada might be inclined to introduce fresh talent into their executive ranks. An example? Young GM Kyle Dubas, now with the Pittsburgh Penguins and previously with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It wouldn't surprise me to see some new faces as part of the next management team, though. For example, I could see Kyle Dubas being approached to be part of it." - Pierre LeBrun

Not only players are proud to represent their countries on International events, managers are too!
