With the team since April of 2014 and has been a large part of why the Leafs are near the top of the league in recent history. Consecutive 100-point seasons and breaking the team points record while he has been here, is just a small example of what Shanahan has been able to do.
“When MLSE approached me several months ago to discuss an extension, I told them this would be quite simple as I’ve had no desire to leave what we’ve started here with the Maple Leafs” said Shanahan, per Leafs PR.
He has seen the club rebuild and put out its worst product in decades to now having some of the most talented Leafs of all-time on its roster. So far, the “Shanaplan” seems to be on-track.
The club is only going in one direction with Shanahan at the top and in control.
“I’d also like to thank our incredibly loyal fanbase,” Shanahan said. “The trust and passion they’ve shown is truly inspiring and drives us to never quit until we reach our ultimate goal.”
