newjerseydevils.com – For the first time since 1990, Brendan Shanahan will be starting the season as a New Jersey Devil.

  ShanahanIt was announced Wednesday that Shanahan has re-signed with the Devils for 2009-10. Unlike last season, when he signed with Jersey's Team in January and played in 34 games, the future Hall of Famer will have the benefit of a training camp and a pre-season to get up to speed before the grind of an 82-game schedule.

The Devils begin the regular season against the Philadelphia Flyers at Prudential Center on Oct. 3.

Shanahan, 40, made a measurable impact in a short span last season. He tallied in his first appearance with the Devils on Jan. 19 at Nashville, collecting three goals and an assist in his first five games. On April 3, with the team looking to snap a six-game winless skid, Shanahan scored on a penalty shot that began a rally against Tampa Bay and sparked the Devils' run of four wins in their final five games.

Shanahan finished his abbreviated season with six goals and eight assists, including two power-play tallies, and added a goal and two assists in seven postseason contests. He strengthened his place among the NHL's greats: His 656 goals are first among active players and 11th all-time; and his 1,354 points are second among active players and 23rd all-time.

New Jersey's first pick, second overall, in 1987, Shanahan has been a Devil for 315 of his 1,524 career games, collecting 94 goals and 134 assists. He's hoisted the Stanley Cup three times with Detroit and has the 2002 gold medal to show for his two Olympic appearances with Team Canada.

Here's an NJD TV look back at some of Shanahan's top moments from 2008-09, beginning with his first goal in a Devils' uniform since 1990-91:

JAN. 19: Shanahan returns, Devils top Nashville, 3-1
