The Toronto Maple Leafs and general manager Kyle Dubas made a major announcement on Friday.
The team has hired 2013 Jack Adams Award winner, Paul MacLean.
"Over nearly two decades as an NHL coach, Paul has filled every role on a coaching staff, winning a Stanley Cup and Jack Adams trophy along the way," head coach Sheldon Keefe said. "Adding someone of Paul's expertise and character to advise and assist our staff is something that we felt was very important as we seek to make tangible steps next season."
MacLean was most recently an assistant coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Sounds like Paul MacLean will play the eye in the sky role for the Leafs coaching staff, advising in all areas of the game.
