Marc Savard joins the Maple Leafs as assistant coach


TORONTO, June 29, 2024 -The Toronto Maple Leafs announced last week (June 23, 2024) that, 2011 Stanley Cup-winning, two-time NHL All-Star Marc Savard has been hired as an assistant coach. Most recently, Savard contributed his hockey expertise and positive attitude as an assistant coach with Calgary Flames.

The hiring completes head coach Craig Berube’s staff for the upcoming season, which includes associate Lane Lambert, assistant Mike Van Ryn, goaltending coach Curtis Sanford, and video coaches Jordan Bean and Sam Kim.

Calgary Flames assistant coach last season

Savard joins the Maple Leafs after serving as an assistant coach with the Calgary Flames last season, following two seasons as head coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires. During his two seasons (2021-22 and 2022-23) in Windsor, Savard guided the Spitfires to a record of 88-35-8-5 and an appearance in the OHL Finals in 2022. The Ottawa, Ontario native began his coaching career with the St. Louis Blues in 2019-20 before beginning his tenure in Windsor.

Stanley Cup winner with Bruins, Two-time All Star

As a player, Savard suited up in 807 regular season games and 25 playoff contests with the New York Rangers, Calgary Flames, Atlanta Thrashers and Boston Bruins, collecting an impressive 706 points (207 goals, 499 assists). He made two NHL All-Star Game appearances (2008 and 2009) and captured one Stanley Cup championship with the Boston Bruins in 2011.

Savard was drafted by the New York Rangers in the fourth round (91st overall) of the 1995 NHL Draft.
