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.

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."

PITTSBURGH -- Defenseman Kris Letang will return to the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup Wednesday against the Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2), 10 weeks after having a stroke.

"Kris has been cleared almost for a few weeks now to be back practicing with us with contact," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said. "The doctors had left it up to him when he felt he was ready to play and come back. Kris has been bugging me for a little while here to return to play. I talked to him on the road trip, talked to him again [Tuesday]. He feels real good on and off the ice, so he'll be back playing this evening.

"I'm excited for him because I think the main thing is health-wise he feels good, and everything is trending in the right direction for him short term and long term."

Mark Osiecki, who has been a part of championship teams at almost every level of his hockey career, will look to add another next winter.

USA Hockey on Wednesday named Osiecki, 45, coach of the United States team for the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Osiecki is in his first season as an assistant coach with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

"I'm thrilled to accept the role of head coach for the U.S. National Junior Team," Osiecki said. "Each time I've been on the Team USA staff it's been an extremely rewarding experience. I will incorporate a lot of what I learned from Phil Housley, Keith Allain and Dean Blais at previous tournaments, as well as what I gained from Mike Eaves at Wisconsin. We have great emerging young talent across the country and I can't wait to start working with them in Lake Placid this August."

ST. LOUIS -- Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin scored his 50th goal of the season Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues.

Ovechkin's power-play goal with 2:06 remaining came on a one-timer from the left circle that got past goaltender Ryan Miller. It was Ovechkin's 23rd power-play goal of the season and started the Capitals on their way to a 4-1 victory.

It's Ovechkin's fifth 50-goal season but his first since 2009-10, when he scored 50. He leads the NHL by eight goals; Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks is next with 42.
