Brendan Shanahan

Brendan Shanahan has been hired as the Toronto Maple Leafs' president and alternate governor.

The move had been rumoured for days but the team announced the hiring on Friday.

Shanahan, a Mimico native, had been serving as the NHL's director of player safety since 2011.

The 45-year-old played 1,524 career NHL games and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last year.

The team said in a press release that Shanahan would begin his role immediately, adding there will be no further comment until a Monday news conference.

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment president Tim Leiweke and Leafs vice-president and general manager Dave Nonis are expected to be at that news conference along with Shanahan.

    This team is an embarrassment in all sports. I hope he wipes out all the coaches & assistant GMs, strips the C off Dion and keep Nonis because they just extended him.

      @ToddJK Yes, and I wish Brendan Shanahan would also do something about your frequent attempts to photograph young children at the ACC.
