NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman issued a statement Friday regarding the departure of Brendan Shanahan, who was named president and alternate governor of the Toronto Maple Leafs:

Brendan has helped to change the culture of the game, has made it safer on a variety of levels, and his influence will be felt for years. We send him to his new role with our best wishes and our deep appreciation for his many contributions to the game."

Report: NHL executive Shanahan to join Leafs

Thursday, 04.10.2014 / 8:10 PM / News

Brendan Shanahan reportedly will resign his position as NHL Senior Vice President, Player Safety and Hockey Operations to join the Toronto Maple Leafs this weekend, according to a report Thursday.

The Toronto Star said Shanahan's resignation could come as early as Friday to take a senior management role with the club.

This season, the Maple Leafs appeared headed for a second straight trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but an eight-game losing streak which began in mid-March severely hurt their chances. Toronto was eliminated on Tuesday, when it lost 3-0 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and has made the playoffs once in the past nine seasons.

Canucks name Linden president of hockey operations

Wednesday, 04.09.2014 / 5:18 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- Trevor Linden is the face of the Vancouver Canucks again.

Their all-time leader in games played and former captain was introduced as president of hockey operations Wednesday.

Picked second by the Canucks at the 1988 NHL Draft, Linden played 16 of his 19 NHL seasons for Vancouver before retiring in 2008 and having his No. 16 retired. He walked away from the game for six years but never left the city and never stopped cheering for the Canucks.

"I came to Vancouver 26 years ago. I've never left," Linden said. "I love this city. It is my home and the Canucks have always been a big part of my family.

"Part of the reason you love the game as a player is because you love the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. It becomes addictive, and part of the reason I am back is the chance to win and do something special here."
