Each month we’ll give a shout out to one NHL team’s coaching staff for pulling out ahead of the pack.

The month of November 2021 goes to the Toronto Maple Leafs coaching staff, including Sheldon Keefe (Head Coach), Manny Malhotra, Spencer Carbery, and Dean Chynoweth (Assistant Coaches), Steve Briere (Goaltending Coach), Sam Kim (Video & Coaching Coordinator) and Jordan Bean (Video Coordinator and Statistical Analyst). Congrats on taking the November 2021 Coaching Staff of the Month award!

12-2-0 record
0.857 Points %
90.3 Penalty Kill %
31.4 Power Play %
53.9 Face Off %
4 Shutouts

How’s the scoring work? We look at 5 categories for how teams are doing:

  1. Wins
  2. Points Percentage
  3. Shutouts
  4. Power Play Percentage
  5. Penalty Kill Percentage

Then we take the top ten teams from each category that month and assign points based on how they finished in that respective category. Combine that with any subjective categories, like a really long winning streak, and we determine which coaching staff is most deserving of the title each month.
