TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have hired Guy Boucher and Mike Van Ryn as assistant coaches, the team announced Thursday.
The hirings round out head coach Sheldon Keefe's staff going into the 2023-24 season.
The rest of the group includes assistants Dean Chynoweth and Manny Malhotra, goaltending coach Curtis Sanford and video coaches Jordan Bean and Sam Kim.
Boucher previously served as head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning from 2010-11 to 2012-13 and the Ottawa Senators from 2016-17 to 2018-19.
Van Ryn joins Toronto after spending the previous five seasons as an assistant coach with the St. Louis Blues.
The 44-year-old helped the Blues capture a Stanley Cup in 2019.
“I'm thrilled to add experienced and accomplished coaches like Guy and Mike, as well as how the roles and responsibilities will now be shared amongst our coaching staff moving forward,” Keefe said.
