Darren Dreger reveals why Craig Berube will be the Leafs head coach

Published May 14, 2024 at 9:05 PM

Insider Darren Dreger provided insight into why the Toronto Maple Leafs are likely to hire Craig Berube as their next head coach.

Following the dismissal of Sheldon Keefe after five years with the team, the Leafs began their search for a new coach. Two top contenders emerged: Todd McLellan and Craig Berube, both recently released from their coaching positions with the Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues, respectively.

Dreger's recent revelation indicates that the Leafs met with McLellan once, but they held two meetings with Berube, once over the weekend and another on Monday. This suggests a strong interest from both the organization and Berube himself.

"dreger on tsn1050 says the leafs met with berube on saturday *and* parts of yesterday

with other teams seemingly pivoting to other options, and the leafs meeting with berube twice, really feels like treliving has his guy"

While other candidates are available, the repeated meetings with Berube signal a potential front-runner status for him in the Leafs' coaching search.
