A portmanteau of NHL chief player disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan and his subsequent enforcement of league rules.

A player is Shanabanned following an on-ice incident which is often accompanied by a video explanation of factors contributing to a suspension.

Shanaban's have received league wide support in lieu of increasing concussions and blindside hits as well as multiple criticisms for lack of consistency.
Five players were Shanabanned in the first week of the 2011-2012 preseason
