Reports: Brendan Shanahan to become new Leafs president of hockey operations

TORONTO - Several media reports say NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan will become the new president of hockey operations for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Shanahan, who was born in Toronto, played in the NHL for 22 years and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013.

The 45-year-old retired as a player in 2009 and joined the NHL's executive as vice president of hockey and business development a month later.

On June 1, 2011, Shanahan replaced Colin Campbell as the league's chief disciplinarian, helping the NHL crack down on illegal plays.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
