We have some breaking news on the Toronto Maple Leafs coaching front! Rumors have been flying left and right about who might step into the head coaching role, and it looks like things might be heating up.

Earlier today, veteran NHL coach Todd McLellan was spotted boarding a plane at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and guess where that plane's headed? Straight for Toronto, Ontario, home of the Maple Leafs!

Now, before we get ahead of ourselves, let's pump the brakes a bit. It doesn't necessarily mean McLellan's signing on the dotted line as the new head coach. He could head to Toronto for an in-person interview with the Leafs brass. It's a sign that he's being considered for the gig by GM Brad Treliving.

Check out this short video showing McLellan at the airport:
