The Toronto Maple Leafs currently do not appear to be in a rush to get a new head coach. However, one former NHL head coach has recently expressed a desire to coach the team.

Craig Berube 'Would Be Honored' To Coach Toronto Maple Leafs



Craig Berube, former head coach of the St. Louis Blues, noted today that he would be interested in coaching the Maple Leafs if he ever got the chance. Notably, Berube won the Stanley Cup with St. Louis back in 2019.

Craig Berube on TLN: "It would be an honour to coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs if it ever happened. Like I said, if not the best hockey market in the world and great organization"

The Stanley Cup winning coach went on to further elaborate on his thoughts about potentially coaching the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Leafs Re-sign Sheldon Keefe To Two-Year Contract Extension



All of this being said, the Maple Leafs just resigned Sheldon Keefe to a contract extension through the end of the 2025-26 season. There have been no indications from the team that they may be looking to change their head coach. However, the Leafs have not been performing as expected this season and head coaches are often the first people to lose their jobs when things take a turn for the worse.


Perhaps Berube will get a chance to coach the Maple Leafs in the near future after all.
