This was reported Thursday evening by the Sportsnet network. As a result, the two parties will end a seven-campaign association when the contract between them expires on June 30.

Hired in 2015, Briere helped Frederik Andersen (now with the Carolina Hurricanes) and Jack Campbell get tickets to the National Hockey League All-Star Game. Having previously worked on various junior teams, Briere saw the Leafs post the 19th best goals against average (3.07) during the last regular season.

Toronto will have to make some big decisions at the goalie position, with Campbell eligible for full free agency this summer. He was plagued with a rib problem during the year and struggled in the second half of the season. For his part, Petr Mrazek has a valid agreement for two more years, he who has also been hit by injuries. The veteran was even placed on waivers after playing 20 games. The Leafs are also betting on Erik Kallgren, who has totaled 14 games in 2021-2022.
