Brendan Shanahan, Last Night’s Hockey Hero, Buys $13.4 M. Condo

Tough 38-year-old Rangers forward Brendan Shanahan is doing well for himself. Last night he scored a game-winning overtime goal to beat the hallowed Montreal Canadiens (whose star Chris Higgins took a college Spanish class with this reporter a few years back).

And on Christmas Eve, according to a deed filed in city records today, Mr. Shanahan and his wife closed on a $13.44 million full-floor apartment at the newly-redone 823 Park Avenue condo.

That gets the Ontario-born athlete Park Avenue perks like five bedrooms, a 32-foot-long living room and a mahogany-paneled library–both with fireplaces–a formal dining room and a massive eat-in kitchen, floor plans show.
