Sheldon Keefe will be behind the bench for the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2023-24, general manager Brad Treliving said Tuesday, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

Keefe is entering the final year of his current contract. However, the Maple Leafs are reportedly expected to discuss an extension with him this summer.

The 42-year-old has led the Leafs to a 166-71-30 record over four regular seasons. His .678 points percentage is the best in franchise history.

Keefe's regular-season success hasn't translated into postseason accomplishments. His playoff record is 13-17 with just one series victory.

Toronto made it past the first round of the playoffs this past season for the first time since 2004 but was bounced by the Florida Panthers in five games in Round 2.
