Randolph Robert Carlyle (born April 19, 1956) is a former ice hockey defenceman and head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs.12 He was raised in Azilda, just northwest of Sudbury, Ontario. He won the Stanley Cup in 2007 with his previous team, the Anaheim Ducks.3

Career

Carlyle was drafted by the National Hockey League's Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1976 NHL Amateur Draft, 30th overall. He was also drafted by the Cincinnati Stingers in the 1976 WHA Amateur Draft, seventh overall. Carlyle played 17 seasons in the NHL with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins and Winnipeg Jets. He appeared in 1055 games and earned 647 points. Known as a fiery, tough-nosed defenceman, he was selected to play in four NHL All-Star Games, winning the Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenceman in 1981. At the conclusion of his playing career in 1993, Carlyle remained with the Jets organization, eventually becoming an assistant coach for the 1995–96 season. In 1989, Carlyle represented Canada at the World Hockey Championships in Stockholm. In that tournament, Carlyle failed the A sample of a drug test, but was cleared of any improper drug use when his B sample came back clean. [1]

Carlyle spent six seasons (1996–2001 & 2004–2005) as head coach of the Manitoba Moose (both in the International and American Hockey Leagues), earning a career mark of 222–159–52–7 with the franchise. He had the additional duties of General Manager of the Moose from 1996 to 2000, adding the title of club President for the 2001–2002 season. He helped the Moose to a 47–21–14 record for 108 points in 1998–99, for which he was named the IHL's General Manager of the Year.

Following the 2001–2002 season, Carlyle joined the Washington Capitals as an assistant coach for two years (2002–2004), before rejoining The Moose.

Carlyle spent 2004–2005 as head coach of the Manitoba Moose, the Vancouver Canucks’ primary development affiliate in the AHL. In 2004–2005, he led the Moose to a 44–26–3–7 record (.613 winning percentage) and an appearance in the Calder Cup Semi-Finals.

Starting August 1, 2005, he became head coach of the Anaheim Ducks. He led a completely rebuilt Ducks team to the playoffs in his first year as coach, advancing to the conference finals during the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

During the 2007 season, Carlyle coached the Ducks to the best regular season in franchise history, setting a record for points in a season at 110 and grabbing the team's first division title. His team was dominant in the playoffs, as Carlyle led the franchise to its first Stanley Cup victory.

On February 8, 2008, with the Ducks 2–1 win over the New Jersey Devils, Carlyle earned his 121st victory, passing Ron Wilson for the franchise record.[2]

His tenure as head coach of the Ducks ended on November 30, 2011. An hour after securing a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on November 30, 2011, Carlyle was fired by the franchise.

Carlyle was hired by the Toronto Maple Leafs as their new head coach on March 2, 2012, replacing the outgoing Ron Wilson.4
