Kyle Dubas names new Marlies head coach after Keefe's promotion to the NHL

1 décembre 2019
Mike Babcock's firing from the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Sheldon Keefe's subsequent promotion from the AHL to the main club, left a void at the head coaching position for the Toronto Marlies. That void has now been filled as Toronto GM Kyle Dubas has named Keefe's replacement at the AHL level.

"Over the last 10 days, we have evaluated all options after Sheldon Keefe's promotion to the Maple Leafs. After a detailed review, it was clear to us that Greg Moore was the best fit to become the Head Coach of the Marlies," said Dubas, via Toronto's website. "Greg's record in development and winning with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program and the USHL's Chicago Steel to begin his coaching career made us take great notice of him as a candidate. More importantly, it became clear in speaking with his employers at USA Hockey and the Chicago Steel that Greg was the best fit for our program in terms of development philosophy."


Moore, 35, served as a guest coach at the Leafs' 2019 development camp. He played 10 NHL games and 377 AHL games after being selected in the fifth round, 143rd overall, of the 2003 NHL Draft by the Calgary Flames. He also spent some seasons playing hockey in Germany and the Czech Republic at the end of his on-ice career. He had been coaching the Chicago Steel since 2018.
