Originally hired back in 2017, Jack Han was brought in as a part of the Research and Development staff that was growing at a rampant rate. Known for his video work, Han has now been moved through the organization and is now an Assistant Coach with the Toronto Marlies.

Han will be working directly with Head Coach Sheldon Keefe, and fellow assistants A.J. MacLean and Rob Davison.
Unfortunately, his Twitter account has been dark since he was hired two years ago, but it was filled with these “#1MinuteTactics” videos that perfectly explain and demonstrate with on-ice examples how certain plays would result in higher success and all that useful stuff.
He was hired by the Leafs from McGill University, as he was their video and analytics coach for their women’s team before he was picked up by Toronto. During that time, Bob McKenzie wrote a feature on Han, if you want to get to know the new assistant coach better and his philosophies on coaching, read it here.
As the Leafs promote these individuals into more active roles …
