Report: Shanahan wants to return, will look past Rangers

Publish date:

According to a report in the New York Post, Brendan Shanahan will look beyond the Rangers for a return to the NHL.

"I've told [agent] Rick [Curran] that I can no longer wait and that it's time to move on," Shanahan told The Post.

Shanahan has been working out alone at the Rangers’ practice facility and had been told by GM Glen Sather to “sit tight” as the team worked out roster and cap room for the 39-year-old veteran.

Originally selected second overall in the 1987 entry draft by the New Jersey Devils, Shanahan has 650 goals and 1340 points in 1490 NHL games. He has played for the Devils, Blues, Whalers, Red Wings and Rangers.
