The Toronto Maple Leafs have officially announced their new Head Coach, and at the World Championship, captain John Tavares has reacted to the big news.

On Friday, the Maple Leafs named Craig Berube as their newest Head Coach. After a big win against Finland, John Tavares shared his thoughts on the new hire for the first time.
"I don't know him at all, just connected with him via text early this morning. It's what I woke up to. Obviously very difficult to see 'Keefer' go, but part of the game at times, and for us as players, it's on us to do a better job. With Craig coming in, he's going to help us with that.

"I'm excited to work with him. He's got a tremendous pedigree. [General manager Brad Treliving] sent a quick note out to myself as well, just about the excitement of bringing him in and how he can help our group. That process has already begun and we're looking forward to having him."

Tavares had mixed emotions after working with Sheldon Keefe for the past five years, but he is excited about the reputation Berube brings. Tavares and the entire city of Toronto are aiming for a Stanley Cup, and the captain believes Berube can help them reach that goal.
"As time goes on and Craig comes in the page turns and we're looking forward to what he brings and how he can help us get to where we want to get to and that's obviously reaching the ultimate goal," Tavares said. "It's what our expectations are and what we want to deliver."

Berube brings passion and Stanley Cup experience to one of the toughest jobs in the NHL, with all the pressure that comes with it. Now, the focus shifts to the summer, where the Leafs are expected to make big changes to their lineup.
