Kyle Dubas was looking to find someone to be the general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, but I guess he had a hard time finding a good fit. There’s only one NHL executive he trusts to do the job, and that’s himself.

Meanwhile, the Edmonton Oilers are already trying to set themselves up for when Connor McDavid’s contract is up.

All that and more in this Friday edition of Evan’s Daily.

Kyle Dubas has been on the hunt for the right fit to be the general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, but in the end, he realized that there’s really only one person fit for the job – himself. That’s right, Kyle Dubas named Kyle Dubas the GM of the Penguins.

Meanwhile, the Edmonton Oilers are prepping for when Connor McDavid’s contract is up in three years. How are they doing that? Well, they’re trying to stay on his good side, and the best way to do that is to hire his agent, Jeff Jackson, to run hockey operations. McDavid will have a new agent, but when his contract is up, it’ll be one of the people he trusts trying to negotiate from the other side. Seems like an easy way to make sure he sticks around long-term.
