#2 Spencer Carbery
News has emerged that Spencer Carbery has received a request of permission to be interviewed by the Washington Capitals. They also interviewed other candidates but Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, who reported the news, didn’t disclose who they were. That’s probably because his source didn’t want to.
Carbery has has experience in the Capitals organization for over a decade. He started out as part of the coaching staff of their ECHL affiliate the South Carolina Stingrays. He then coached the AHL’s Hershey Bears for three seasons before taking the assistant coaching job with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
In 2018 19 he went 43-25-0-8 while his second year saw him go 37-18-0-7. HIs third year he went 24-7-0-2 before he took that assistant coaching job with the Maple Leafs.
"“Now that the Maple Leafs are out of the playoffs, there’s no question that teams will be reaching out about Toronto assistant coach Spencer Carbery, and I believe the Capitals, his old organization, have already sought permission to interview him for their vacant head coach position, although neither organization would confirm that Tuesday.”"
The Maple Leafs fell to the Florida Panthers in the second round of the playoffs in five games with Radko Gudas providing the game winning assist.
