Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas said he does not have a contract beyond the 2022-23 NHL season but doesn't see that becoming a distraction for himself or the team.

"I'm more than happy to go through the year and be evaluated on the year and then have the decision made, because I believe in our group," Dubas said on the first day of Toronto Maple Leafs camp on Wednesday.

Dubas was promoted to general manager in May 2018. The Leafs have made the Stanley Cup playoffs in all four of those seasons but haven't advanced past the first round of the NHL postseason since 2004.

He said team president Brendan Shanahan informed him at the end of last season, after the Leafs were eliminated in seven games by the Tampa Bay Lightning, that Dubas would enter this season without a contract extension.
