Kyle Dubas, General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Wednesday that Brandon Pridham has been promoted to Assistant General Manager. Pridham, who first joined the Leafs as Assistant to the General Manager in August of 2014, will continue in his role to assist with salary cap analysis, contract negotiations and collective bargaining agreement interpretation for the team.
"Brandon's promotion to Assistant General Manager is most deserving," said Dubas. "Working closely with him for the last four seasons has allowed me to see the value that he brings to our program across many domains."
"Brandon is a vital part of our organization today and moving forward. He has earned this title with his selfless contributions to the Maple Leafs during his time here."
Pridham joined the Leafs from the National Hockey League where he most recently served as Senior Director, Central Registry and Senior Advisor, Central Scouting. He began his career at the NHL in 1999 as a coordinator in NHL Central Scouting. In 15 years with the League, he served in a number of capacities in the Central Scouting and Central Registry departments with duties that included serving as the contact person for NHL General Managers, Assistant General Managers and NHL Executives on issues involving the CBA, salary cap and NHL Central Scouting department.
Pridham, 44, and his wife, Sue, have two children.
