Shanahan dedicates Hall entry to late father | 11/12/2013 10:16 AM
NewsBrendan Shanahan wanted to dedicate his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame to his father, the late Donal Shanahan.
New Jersey Online
ImpactDonal suffered from Alzheimer's disease and passed away in May 1990. He never saw his son play in an NHL game. "When I was about eight or nine years old he caught me with a piece of chalk I had taken from school and I was writing my name on the wall," Brendan Shanahan recalled on Monday. "He said with his gentle Irish brogue: 'A man's ambitions must be small to write his name upon a wall.' First thing I thought was, 'How long have you been carrying that one around? What are the odds you get to use that in life?'" On a more serious note, he later added, "This is the name he gave me and he deserves to see it up on this wall."

Flames CEO confirms Shanahan up for exec role | 06/18/2013 8:36 AM
NewsFlames CEO/president Ken King says Brendan Shanahan is a candidate to join Calgary's front office but won't replace GM Jay Feaster.
ImpactShanahan admitted Friday that he met with Flames management last week and there was speculation the NHL's czar of discipline was in line to replace Feaster. "This is not a death watch," King said Monday. "I can tell you we are now on a long-term process to add depth to our hockey operations. We want to get back to where we should be, and this is something we think is consistent with that. We have a GM, and Jay is involved in this process." It remains to be seen if Shanahan might be offered a front office position or what sort of role he would have with the Flames.
