Shane Albert Doan (born October 10, 1976) is a Canadian professional ice hockey executive and former player currently serving as chief hockey development officer for the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Doan spent the entirety of his 21-season NHL career with the Coyotes franchise, beginning with the Winnipeg Jets in 1995 before playing in Arizona for two decades.

Career[change | change source]

Before playing in the NHL, Doan played 3 seasons with the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League (WHL). During his time there, he was able to win the Memorial Cup two years in a row with the Blazers and won the Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the Memorial Cup Tournament.

He was drafted with the 7th overall pick by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. In the 2003-04 season, he was named the third captain in Phoenix Coyotes history, replacing Teppo Numminen, who was traded to the Dallas Stars. He signed a 4-year, $21.2 million contract with the Coyotes on September 14, 2012.[1] On August 30, 2017, Doan officially announced his retirement from the NHL.[2]

Personal life[change | change source]

He grew up in a religious family and continues to be a practicing Christian. He also writes Bible verse Romans 8:28 on his hockey sticks.[3] In April 2011 Doan along with his brother Brook appeared as the "Prey" on the television series Mantracker.[4]
