TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to fill out their coaching staff.

The NHL team announced Tuesday that it hired Corey Hirsch as its goaltending coach and Graeme Townshend as skating coach. Dennis Bonvie and Tom Watt have also been added as pro scouts.

Townshend spent the past four seasons with the San Jose Sharks. He'll be reunited with new Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson.
