Toronto Maple Leafs President and Alternate Governor Brendan Shanahan announced today that Mike Babcock has been relieved of his coaching duties and Sheldon Keefe has been named the Club’s new head coach. #LeafsForever— Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) November 20, 2019
The Maple Leafs play tomorrow in Arizona at 9 p.m. Toronto time. The Marlies play tonight in Toronto at 7 p.m.
Hardev is covering the Marlies tonight, when he tells me who is coaching them, or if there’s any firm word on permanent coaching there, I’ll let you know.
Assistant coaches Rob Davison and A.J. MacLean will assume duties behind the bench for tonight’s game. #MarliesLive— Toronto Marlies (@TorontoMarlies) November 20, 2019
