Shane Doan Now A Part Of The NHL’s Hockey Operations

NEW YORK / TORONTO (Oct. 26, 2017) – A consummate leader, popular teammate and respected opponent who became a franchise icon over his 21 NHL seasons, Shane Doan has joined the NHL’s Hockey Operations Department, the League announced today.

Doan will work with Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell and his staff on all aspects of the game. He will work closely with hockey executives on the Club level and be involved with the Competition Committee.

“We are thrilled to welcome Shane, whose vast experience and in-depth knowledge of the game will be invaluable to the League office,” Campbell said. “We look forward to calling upon his two decades of playing experience – particularly his incomparable understanding of the game as it is being played today.”

Doan, who played in the NHL from 1995-96 through 2016-17, announced his retirement as an active player on Aug. 30. His 1,540 regular-season games played are tied with John Bucyk for 14th place on the League’s all-time list.

Selected seventh overall in the 1995 NHL Draft, Doan spent his entire NHL career with the Winnipeg Jets/Arizona Coyotes franchise. He served as captain for each of his final 13 campaigns and retired as the team’s all-time leader in games played (1,540), goals (402), assists (570), points (972), power-play goals (128) and game-winning goals (69).

Doan was named to the NHL All-Star Game in 2004 and 2009, received the King Clancy Memorial Trophy for community service in 2010, and captured the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award in 2012. The Halkirk, Alta., native represented Canada at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin and in six IIHF World Championships.
