After a disappointing second round exit and the departure of Kyle Dubas, many felt that head coach Sheldon Keefe could also be on his way out of Toronto. After the hiring of Brad Treliving fans expected the Maple Leafs to head in a different direction. Today the Leafs confirmed that would not be the case.

After multiple conversations with his general manager, it appears that Keefe made a great first impression. Today the Maple Leafs announced a multi-year extension for Keefe.
