The Toronto Maple Leafs have inked new head coach Sheldon Keefe to a new three-year deal, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Keefe’s new contract will include the current 2019-20 campaign as well as the next two seasons, leaving the 39-year-old signed through 2022.
Keefe was named head coach of the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, taking over the role from Mike Babcock after a successful four-year stint with the club’s AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.
Prior to that run, Keefe coached the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds from 2012 to 2015 and the Pembroke Lumber Kings from 2006 to 2012.
