Drew Shore (born January 29, 1991) is an American professional ice hockey center who currently plays for the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was a second round selection, 44th overall, of the Florida Panthers at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and played parts of two seasons with Florida prior to being traded to Calgary. Internationally, Shore has represented the United States at both the junior and senior levels; He was a member of the American entry at the 2014 IIHF World Championship.

Playing career[edit]

Junior and college[edit]

After playing the 2006–07 season with Detroit Honeybaked of the Midwest Elite Hockey League,[1] Shore had several options for junior hockey. The Chilliwack Bruins of the Western Hockey League selected him with their second round pick in that league's Bantam Draft, however Shore opted to remain in the United States and joined the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (USNTDP) in 2007.[2] As a member of the USNTDP Under-17 team, Shore played 54 games in 2007–08, scored 13 goals and added 25 assists.[3] He made his first international debut that season as a member of Team USA at the 2008 World U-17 Hockey Challenge. Shore recorded seven points in six games as the Americans won the silver medal.[3]

In a combined 62 games between North American Hockey League (NAHL) play and various exhibitions with the USNTDP Under-18 team in 2008–09, Shore scored 17 goals and led his team with 32 assists.[3] He caught the attention of National Hockey League (NHL) scouts in advance of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, and was ranked as high as 11th overall by International Scouting Services and 32nd among North American skaters by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau.[2] The Florida Panthers selected him with their second round pick, 44th overall,[4] however he did not sign with the team immediately as Shore committed to play college hockey for the University of Denver Pioneers.[2]

As a freshman in 2009–10 Shore scored 5 goals and 18 assists for Denver, who won the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) regular season title. He then led the Pioneers in scoring with 46 points and was named a WCHA Second Team All-Star in 2009–10.[3] At the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championship, Shore appeared in six games and scored two goals.[1] He was again named a WCHA All-Star in his junior season of 2011–12 after leading his team and finishing fourth overall in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I scoring with 53 points.[3] Shore opted to forgo his final season of college eligibility and turned professional upon the conclusion of his college season; the Panthers assigned him to their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage. Shore scored his first professional point on March 31, 2012, with an assist against the Rockford IceHogs.[3]

Professional[edit]

Playing his first full professional season in 2012–13, Shore began the season with San Antonio where he scored 30 points in 41 games.[1] He played in the AHL All-Star Game, and was recalled to the Panthers upon the resolution of the 2012–13 NHL lockout in time to make his NHL debut on January 22, 2013, against the Montreal Canadiens.[3] He scored his first NHL goal on February 12, against goaltender Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals in a 6–5 loss.[5] Shore played 43 games for the Panthers in his rookie season and scored 3 goals along with 10 assists.[1]

Shore split the 2013–14 season between San Antonio and Florida. He scored 32 points in 50 games for the Rampage and had 5 goals and 2 assists for the Panthers in 24 games.[1] The combination of the Panthers' depth at center and Shore being only one game shy of requiring waivers – and the risk of losing him to any other team at no cost – caused the Panthers to start him with San Antonio in 2014–15.[6] Unable to fit him into their NHL lineup, the team finally traded Shore to the Calgary Flames on January 9, 2015, in exchange for Corban Knight. At the time of the deal, Shore was 12th in AHL scoring with 30 points and had been named to play in the All-Star Game.[7] He made his debut with Calgary on January 15 in a 4–1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.[8]

Personal life[edit]

His younger brothers are also hockey players; Nick is a member of the Los Angeles Kings organization [9] and Quentin plays NCAA college hockey at the University of Denver and is a member of the Ottawa Senators organization.[10]
