Sheldon Keefe: "Leaf stars have room to grow"November 21, 2020 | 04:57 AM

Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe said on Friday that his young stars Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander still have plenty of room to grow. Analysis: It was one year ago Friday that Keefe took over as the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs from Mike Babcock and he thinks his three young stars will improve as they mature. "They have a great deal to grow. I don't know where it shakes out in terms of their production. The production has been fairly good, of course, especially in the regular season as they've established themselves as premier players," Keefe said to Mark Masters of TSN. "But I think all of our players have room to grow in all the other areas of their game in terms of the consistency away from the puck and the competitiveness in terms of their ability to bring the best out of others around them and not just be at their best."
