Brendan Shanahan

Brendan Shanahan, currently President and Alternative Governor of the Toronto Maple Leafs, played 21 seasons in the National Hockey League from 1987 to 2009. During his career, he captured three Stanley Cup championships, an Olympic gold medal, a World Championship gold medal, and a Canada Cup championship. Mr. Shanahan was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013. For almost a decade, he has been a staunch supporter of Sanctuary for Families’ work serving victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking

“We know that sex trafficking often increases during big games. Athletes have a special responsibility to educate our teams and fans that buying women and girls for sex doesn’t make men cool or powerful. It lines the pockets of violent traffickers and taints the reputation of the games we love.”
