Maple Leafs extend head coach Sheldon Keefe

After four successful seasons as the Toronto Maple Leafs head coach, Sheldon Keefe, has been extended by the organization, the team announced this morning.

Across the last four years, Toronto has been in a tornado of emotions. From second-round playoff losses to 50-win seasons, they have been all over the place, but one thing we know they can do is win and Keefe does that.

In his four years as a head coach for the Maple Leafs, Keefe has tallied up a record of 166-71-30, ranking him sixth all-time in franchise history.

Toronto general manager Brad Treliving made a statement regarding the extension of Keefe.

“Since I’ve joined the Maple Leafs, I’ve been very impressed with Sheldon,” said general manager Brad Treliving, via release. “He has shown great leadership skills with his staff and our players, and has a clear vision for this team and where it needs to get to. Sheldon has established himself as one of the top coaches in the league and I look forward to working alongside him as we head into the upcoming season.”

“Coaching this team has been a great privilege, and I’m truly excited at the opportunity to continue building towards our ultimate goal,” said head coach Sheldon Keefe. “I’m thankful for the support from MLSE and its ownership along with Brendan Shanahan and Brad Treliving, who I’ve really enjoyed getting to know and work with this off-season. We have so many great players and people within our organization that I’m grateful to work with, and together our commitment to team success remains steadfast.”

Last season, Toronto and Keefe finished as one of the top teams in the NHL, finishing with the fourth-highest in the league in points and second in the Atlantic division. The eventual Stanley Cup runner-ups would bounce the Maple Leafs out of the second round, ruining their playoff hopes.

Can Keefe and the Toronto Maple Leafs make a big turnaround and achieve a deep playoff run next season? Let us know in the comments below.
