<span class="txt18Strg">All-Star Profile </span><br /> <br /> <a href="#quick"><b>QUICK FACTS</b></a><br /> <a href="#he"><b>HE SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#they"><b>THEY SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#news"><b>IN THE NEWS</b></a><br /> <a href="#video"><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b></a><br /> <br /> <a name="quick"></a><b>QUICK FACTS</b><br> Doan is one of only a handful active NHL players (Teppo Numminen, Keith Tkachuk, Nikolai Khabibulin, Teemu Selanne, Kris Draper and Chad Kilger) who once played for the Winnipeg Jets. Doan commented on playing his entire career with the Winnipeg/Phoenix franchise: "It's a huge blessing and honor. I've played with a lot of guys that have come and went to other teams, and a lot of my friends have been traded and moved, so it's pretty special, for sure." <br><br> He played in his first NHL All-Star Game in 2004 alongside former Coyotes teammate Keith Tkachuk - the two combined for Doan's first All-Star goal in the second period. Prior to the game, Tkachuk lobbied Western Conference coaches Dave Lewis and Marc Crawford for the Doan - Tkachuk line combination. Doan commented on his experience: "It was something I'll never forget. (Tkachuk's request) was awfully flattering. The opportunity to play with Keith was pretty special." <br><br> Off the ice, Doan has taken an active role in a number of charities, including United Blood Services in Arizona, Phoenix Children's Hospital and the Phoenix Rescue Mission. <br><br> <a name="he"></a><b>HE SAID IT</b><br> On the progression of his career: "It seems like yesterday I was the guy looking at (Keith) Tkachuk and (Teppo) Numminen and (Mike) Gartner, all the guys that were around and I got to watch and see what they were like. It really seems like yesterday. It changes so quickly. Our team got really young (in 2007-08). It's something that as a player, I think every player put in that situation enjoys because it means you've been around a while and you've had some durability in the League. If you can help any of your teammates and make it easier, you're going to. You look forward to that, but at the same time I talk to other guys on other teams that have been playing longer than I have. It's a circular thing." <br><br> On being an all-round player: "Someone once told me 'don't worry about being the highest scoring player worry about being the best player'. And there is a pretty big difference between the two and as I get older I realize I need to make sure I do all the little things and not worry too much about scoring." <br><br> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br> Phoenix Coyotes Head Coach Wayne Gretzky after Doan's 900th game: "Shane's game is power and when he's physical and when he's powerful, that's when he's playing his best hockey ... so, to be able to play that many games at that level of intensity is pretty solid." <br><br> Phoenix Coyotes forward Olli Jokinen: "It's been great getting a chance to play with a player of his caliber. He's an unbelievable leader, really good goal scorer and one of the best power forwards in the League. It's easy to play with a guy like him." <br><br> Phoenix Coyotes forward Peter Mueller: "He's definitely made it an unbelievable experience. A lot of young guys coming into the program are a little nervous, but when you have guys like Shane, they've made it a lot easier for us coming in and playing right away. He's been in the League since he's 19-years-old, so he knows exactly what to do. He tells people what to do and people listen. When he talks, everyone listens. He's our leader, our captain. He knows what it takes to be a pro." <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=391063&cmpid=rss">Jokinen, Doan make perfect match</a><br /> <br /> <a name="video"></a><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&id=26310">Bridgestone Captains: Doan</a><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&id=20137">Doan Feature</a><br /><br><span class="txt14Strg">Career All-Star Game Statistics </span> <div style="border: 1px solid rgb(161, 161, 161); margin: 4px 0px; padding: 0px; float: left; width: 660px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" id="asstatsbox"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" class="asstat"> <tbody> <tr class="headrw"> <td>SEASON</td> <td>TEAM</td> <td>Score</td> <td>R</td> <td align="center">GP</td> <td align="center">G</td> <td align="center">A</td> <td align="center">PTS</td> <td align="center">+/-</td> <td align="center">PIM</td> <td align="center">PP</td> <td align="center">SH</td> <td align="center">GW</td> <td align="center">SOG</td> </tr> <tr> <td>2003-04</td> <td>West</td> <td>4-6</td> <td>L</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center" class="right">3</td> </tr> <tr class="totrw"> <td colspan="4">All-Star Totals</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center" class="right">3</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> <script type="text/javascript">jQuery(function(){ jQuery('#asstatsbox').corner('6px'); });</script>
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
