The Toronto Maple Leafs and head coach Sheldon Keefe have agreed on a two-year contract extension, Sportsnet can confirm.

Keefe was entering the final season of his contract, meaning he is now signed through the 2023-24 campaign.

The 41-year-old has a 62-29-12 regular-season record since replacing Mike Babcock in November of 2019. Before joining the Leafs' bench, Keefe was the head coach of the AHL's Toronto Marlies from 2015-19, leading the team to a Calder Cup championship in 2018.

The Maple Leafs will return to the ice Friday night in the annual Blue vs. White game, which you can watch on Sportsnet ONE and SN Now beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
