The Toronto Maple Leafs have made a significant move in their coaching staff by appointing Craig Berube as their new head coach. This decision comes after the Leafs parted ways with former head coach Sheldon Keefe following a disappointing playoff exit.

General manager Brad Treliving expressed the team’s desire for a fresh voice and perspective to guide the Maple Leafs towards reaching their full potential. According to Treliving, the team was seeking a coach who could effectively communicate and motivate the players.

Craig Berube, a seasoned NHL coach, brings a wealth of experience to the Maple Leafs. Berube previously coached the Philadelphia Flyers and led them to a playoff appearance in 2014 before moving on to coach the Chicago Wolves, the AHL affiliate of the St. Louis Blues.

Berube’s most notable achievement came with the St. Louis Blues, where he was named the interim head coach in 2018. Despite facing adversity at the start of his tenure, Berube inspired a remarkable turnaround that culminated in the Blues winning their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Following his success with the Blues, Berube earned a permanent head coaching position and signed multiple contract extensions to solidify his role within the organization. However, after a recent downturn in performance, Berube was relieved of his duties in St. Louis.

Now, Berube is set to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs with a proven track record of success and a deep understanding of the game. His experience as both a player and a coach in the NHL positions him as a valuable asset to the Leafs organization.

The Alberta, Canada native’s appointment as the head coach of the Maple Leafs signifies a new chapter for the team as they aim to make a strong push in the upcoming seasons under Berube’s guidance.
