NEW YORK (CP) - Veteran winger Brendan Shanahan of the New York Rangers is the winner of the inaugural Mark Messier Leadership Award.

Messier personally presented the award to Shanahan on Tuesday. Every month Messier, with input from the NHL, will select players he feels best exemplify leadership skills on and off the ice.

''The NHL is fortunate to have so many players that embody all the attributes of great leadership,'' Messier said in a statement. ''This award provides an opportunity for me to acknowledge the players who lead by example and bring out the best in others, both within their sport as well as in the community.''
