Samuel Hamilton Shore (February 12, 1886 – October 13, 1918) was a Canadian professional hockey player who played several seasons for the Ottawa Senators, notably during the "Silver Seven" era when the club was champion from 1903 until 1906. Shore was a victim of the influenza epidemic of 1918.

Playing career[edit]

Shore joined the Ottawa Hockey Club in 1904 when the club was already Stanley Cup champion. After one season, he played out west with Winnipeg Seniors, before returning to Ottawa in 1906–07. He returned to Winnipeg to play professional, with the Winnipeg Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Strathconas. He played in the Maple Leafs' unsuccessful 1908 Stanley Cup challenge against the Montreal Wanderers. He did not play the following season, 1908–09 due to illness. He returned to Ottawa, now a professional club, in the 1909–10 season, playing on another Stanley Cup winner. He would remain in the organization until October 1918, when he died of the Spanish flu epidemic. He was a member of a third Stanley Cup winner, in 1911.


Shore was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Shore. He married Ruby Legendre. When Ruby became ill with the flu in October 1918, Shore also fell ill. Shore died of pneumonia after a week's illness in Rideau Street Hospital.[1] Shore was a civil servant with the Canada federal government Department of the Interior at the time of his death.[2]
