Coach Zettler's Playing Statistics

Rob Zettler was named an assistant coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 22, 2008.      
Zettler worked the past five seasons with Maple Leafs head coach Ron Wilson in San Jose.  In 2007-08, under the guidance of Wilson, Hunter and Leafs assistant coach Tim Hunter, the Sharks were very strong defensively, ranking first in NHL penalty killing (85.8%) and third in goals against average (2.28).  San Jose finished second overall last season in the NHL with 108 points on a record of 49-23-10.

Wilson, Hunter and Zettler are among the most technologically advanced coaches in the NHL, as they utilize a laptop on the bench for replays and a tablet personnel computer for real time statistics.  As well, they utilize a SMART Board “digital chalkboard” in the dressing room, which has streaming and telestrator capabilities.

Zettler, a 40-year-old native of Sept-Iles, Quebec, spent parts of the final three years of his career playing for Wilson and Hunter in Washington, prior to joining San Jose as an assistant coach in 2002.  He played 14 seasons in the NHL for Minnesota, San Jose, Philadelphia, Toronto, Nashville and Washington, playing in 569 games collecting 70 points (five goals, 65 assists) with 922 penalty minutes.  For three seasons, from 1995-96 to 1997-98, he played in 136 games for the Maple Leafs registering two goals and 20 assists for 22 points and 207 penalty minutes.
