The Toronto Maple Leafs filled out their coaching staff Friday, naming two assistants to coach under Randy Carlyle.

Toronto Marlies head coach Steve Spott, and former Florida Panthers interim head coach Peter Horachek were named Carlyle's assistants for the upcoming season.

Spott took the Marlies to the conference finals in the Calder Cup playoffs last season after guiding the team to a 45-25-6 regular season record after taking over from Dallas Eakins.

Horachek led the Panthers to a 26-36-4 record last season after taking over head coaching duties from the fired Kevin Dineen.

Prior to his time in the Panthers organization, Horachek spent 10 seasons coaching under Barry Trotz in Nashville.
