Newark, NJ – The Devils today re-signed forward Brendan Shanahan to a new contract. The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello. As per club policy, no further terms were disclosed.

“Brendan Shanahan is an experienced veteran who can play in all situations, and accepts any role to help the team win,” said Lamoriello. “We are delighted to have him back.”

Shanahan will enter his 22nd National Hockey League season in October, including his sixth season with the Devils. He re-joined the club last season after signing as a free agent on January 15, 2009. The three-time Stanley Cup Champion saw action in 34 regular-season games last season, recording six goals and eight assists for 14 points and 29 penalty minutes, and added one goal and two assists for three points and two penalty minutes in seven post-season contests.

Shanahan has career totals of 656 goals and 698 assists for 1,354 points and 2,489 penalty minutes in 1,524 regular-season games with New Jersey, St. Louis, Hartford, Detroit, and the NY Rangers. Shanahan also has 60 goals and 74 assists for 134 points and 279 penalty minutes in 184 Stanley Cup Playoff appearances.

He ranks 11th all-time in games played, first among active players/11th all-time in goals, tied for 49th all-time in assists, and second among active players/23rd overall in points. The 6-3, 220-lb. forward is a two-time 50-goal scorer, has reached the 40-goal mark six times, 30-goal mark 12 times, and has scored 20 goals on 19 occasions. He has 94 goals and 134 assists for 228 points and 553 penalty minutes in 315 regular-season games with the Devils. He has also seen action in 32 playoff games with New Jersey, recording nine goals and 11 assists for 20 points and 78 penalty minutes.

Brendan Shanahan
The native of Mimico, Ont. returned to the lineup on January 19 at Nashville, becoming the 17th player in team history to re-join the organization. At 6,504 days since his previous appearance March 31, 1991, he established an NHL record for the longest gap between regular-season games with one team. On February 11 vs. the NY Islanders, he became just the 12th player in NHL history to reach the 1,500 games-played mark.

Shanahan has appeared in eight NHL All-Star Games and was named to the league’s First All-Star Team in 1994 and 2000, as well as its Second All-Star Team in 2002. He was the recipient of the 2003 King Clancy Memorial Trophy for leadership and humanitarian contributions.

Born January 23, 1969, he represented Canada at the 1987 World Junior Championships, 1991 Canada Cup, two World Championships, the 1996 World Cup, and two Olympic Winter Games. He was New Jersey’s first choice and second overall selection in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft.
