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

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.

— Zac Rinaldo to the Flyers website on signing a two-year contract extension with Philadelphia
