NHLTR: Dion Phaneuf returns to the Toronto Maple Leafs

In a rare appearance that has caught everyone off guard, Dion Phaneuf was seen at the Scotiabank Arena on Thursday night as two of his old teams were battling it out. The PEI native, was spotted 'shadowing' Leafs President, Brendan Shanahan, and rumor has it, they are grooming Phaneuf for life after playing hockey.

Bob McKenzie of TSN reported, that Phaneuf was invited in by Shanahan, to shadow his job for a few days to get a feel for the business side of the game. Phaneuf hasn't played a game since he was bought out by the LA Kings, and by all accounts, has retired (unofficially) as a player.

The 34-year old, played 1048 games, with 4 clubs, finishing with 494 points and 1345 minutes in penalties.

Good for Dion, to want to stay busy as given his circumstances, it would be really easy to put your feet up and enjoy the company.
