Brendan Shanahan's departure from the NHL's offices to become president of the Toronto Maple Leafs left a void in the league's department of player safety. On Friday, the NHL announced that Stephane Quintal will take over Shanahan's role for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs.

Quintal, who played 1,037 games in a 16-year NHL career, already worked under Shanahan as safety manager after joining the department in 2011.

The player safety department, tasked with monitoring games, flagging plays for review, conducting hearings and administering supplementary discipline, will be overseen by NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, according to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun.

One of Quintal's first jobs will be holding a hearing on Mike Rupp's high hit on T.J. Oshie in Thursday night's Blues-Wild game.
