Brendan Shanahan stuck to his word and agreed to a 1-year deal with the New York Rangers yesterday. The 38-year-old left winger had 29 goals and 62 points with the Rangers last season, his first with New York. Following the Rangers' second-round playoff elimination, Shanahan said he wanted to continue his career and had no interest in playing anywhere but New York. "There was never any doubt what Brendan's intentions were or on [general manager] Glen Sather's part that he wanted Brendan back," Shanahan's agent, Rick Curran, told the Associated Press in a phone interview.

Brendan Shanahan is leaning toward returning for a 20th NHL season, and wants to stay with the New York Rangers. Sporting a clean-shaven face and full-toothed smile, the 38-year-old forward spoke yesterday after his end-of-season interviews with general manager Glen Sather and coach Tom Renney. He hasn't come to a final decision whether to continue his surefire Hall of Fame career, but that is the direction his mind has taken him. "My instincts are that I will probably play, but it's something that I'm going to think over," he said in front of dressing-room stalls full of practice gear no longer needed this season.

Brendan Shanahan is retiring from the NHL after 21 seasons and an almost certain Hall of Fame career. The 40-year-old forward announced yesterday that he wouldn't play again. After going through training camp with the New Jersey Devils, the team he spent his final season with, he and the club mutually parted unexpectedly shortly before opening night of the season. Shanahan, who scored 656 career goals, decided to leave the Devils in October one day after he was told there was no spot for him on New Jersey's top three lines.

Brendan Shanahan, a star left wing with the St. Louis Blues who broke his ankle during the playoffs, was traded last night to the Hartford Whalers for top young defenseman Chris Pronger. A big scorer who finished with 20 goals last season, Shanahan injured his ankle in the fifth game of the playoffs, and the Blues were eliminated in the first round by Vancouver. Shanahan was often at odds with coach Mike Keenan. During the season, Keenan criticized Shanahan's toughness and work ethic, and Shanahan sulked after the Blues traded linemate Craig Janney to San Jose.

Grant Fuhr notched his fourth playoff shutout as the visiting St. Louis Blues defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 2-0, in the opener of their Western Conference series last night. "It starts with defense," St. Louis forward Scott Pellerin said. "We're just trying to go in there, knock guys around, and see what happens. " Geoff Courtnall and Pierre Turgeon scored first-period goals for St. Louis, a team that took Detroit to double overtime in Game 7 of the second round a year ago before bowing out. And that was with backup Jon Casey subbing while Fuhr recovered from a knee injury.
