NHL insider reveals NJ Devils are highly interested in Sheldon Keefe

The New Jersey Devils chaotic 2023-24 season saw them cycle through two head coaches without securing a playoff berth, despite high expectations to contend for the Stanley Cup.

With Travis Green's recent departure to coach the Ottawa Senators, the coaching seat in New Jersey is once again vacant.

NHL Insider Pierre LeBrun has reported that the Devils are showing interest in Sheldon Keefe, who was recently let go by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I do believe the New Jersey Devils will have interest in interviewing Sheldon Keefe as part of their coaching search.

This development surfaces as the Devils are also reportedly eyeing Craig Berube, a seasoned coach whose future could intertwine with Keefe's decisions, sparking considerable interest among fans.

Sheldon Keefe faced intense pressure and scrutiny in Toronto, a market notorious for its high stakes and vocal fanbase. If Keefe lands the job with the Devils, he will inherit a young, talented squad eager for success.

This could be the perfect opportunity for Keefe to showcase his coaching prowess, far from the harsh spotlight of Toronto, and prove his critics wrong by turning around the Devils' fortunes.
