VANCOUVER (AP) — Colin Campbell has dropped his duties as the NHL’s chief disciplinarian.

The veteran executive has relinquished a key component of his job just before the start of the Stanley Cup Finals involving his son Gregory, a member of the Boston Bruins.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has confirmed the news Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of the finals between Boston and Vancouver. Bettman says Brendan Shanahan will take over the job. Shanahan will also oversee a committee on player safety.

Campbell had already been excused from making any rulings during the series, just as he was any time the Bruins were involved in a decision by the league.

Campbell will continue to work for the NHL.
