Toronto Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan signed a six-year extension through the 2024-25 season on Tuesday. Shanahan joined the organization in April 2014. The Maple Leafs have reached the playoffs in each of the past three seasons, including back-to-back 100-point campaigns in 2017-18 and 2018-19.

"Brendan's positive impact on this team has not only been felt on the ice, where the team is on an impressive path, but throughout the league, with the Leafs alumni, and in the community," chairman of the board for Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Larry Tanenbaum said in a statement. "We look forward to continued success for the Maple Leafs under Brendan's leadership over the next six years." Shanahan thanked his coaches, trainers, office staff and players "for the professionalism and dedication they display every day."

"I'd also like to thank our incredibly loyal fanbase," the Ontario native said. "The trust and passion they've shown is truly inspiring and drives us to never quit until we reach our ultimate goal." Toronto finished third in the Atlantic Division in 2018-19 and lost a seven-game first-round series to the Boston Bruins.

Shanahan, 50, is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. The three-time Stanley Cup winner and three-time All-Star played 21 seasons with five teams from 1987-2009, tallying 656 goals and 1,354 points.
