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.
