Before joining the Maple Leafs, Carbery coached the Capitals’ AHL affiliate in Hershey, Pennsylvania, for three seasons, so several players in the organization already know their new boss. That could help players like forwards Beck Malenstyn and Joe Snively, who previously played for Carbery, but a fresh look could also be beneficial for players on the NHL roster.
It’s no secret that the 2022-23 season didn’t go well for Anthony Mantha, who was a healthy backup multiple times and struggled to provide consistent offense. Mantha’s name has been bandied about throughout the offseason as a player who could be traded, but he will have a clean slate under Carbery – and will be motivated to improve. Carbery also has a track record of developing emerging talent, which could help younger players such as Martin Fehervary, Rasmus Sandin and Connor McMichael.
