Maple Leafs add AHL coach of the year to staff


TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs are adding to their bench, hiring Spencer Carbery as an assistant coach.

Carbery, 39, previously worked in the American Hockey League as head coach of the Hershey Bears, an affiliate of the Washington Capitals.

The Bears went 104-50-17 over Carbery’s three seasons at the helm, and he was named the AHL’s outstanding coach of the year in June after Hershey finished the campaign 24-7-9.
