Brendan Shanahan to become president of Toronto Maple Leafs

Brendan Shanahan has been a key part of the NHL league office since 2009, and became the NHL’s senior vice president of player safety and hockey operations in 2011. But his time with the league office will reportedly end soon, as he will reportedly resign his position and become the president of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Brendan ShanahanThe Toronto Star first broke the story and is claiming Shanahan could make the decision official on Friday. The Maple Leafs have been eliminated from the playoffs and currently have 84 points, which puts them in 22nd place league-wide. Simply put, the team’s new president has his work cut out for him.

Shanahan took over as the NHL’s chief player disciplinarian in 2011 and some of his rulings on suspensions (dubbed “shanabans”) have been controversial. But one step forward for the league has been Shanahan’s delivery of rulings with an accompanying video in which he explains his view of the offending play. It’s a great idea that will hopefully continue now that he’ll be moving on.

Shanahan played 21 seasons in the NHL and retired in 2009. He played on three Stanley Cup-winning teams and is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. He is also the only player in NHL history with more than 600 goals and 2,000 penalty minutes in a career. Shanahan scored 656 goals during stints with the New Jersey Devils, St. Louis Blues, Hartford Whalers, Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers.

The 45-year-old is a native of Etobicoke, Ontario, which is now the western section of Toronto. So he grew up in the city and will be moving back to take over his hometown team.
