Shea Theodore (born August 3, 1995) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman for the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League (NHL). Theodore was selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Theodore was rated as a top prospect in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.[1] In junior, Theodore served as captain for the Seattle Thunderbirds in the Western Hockey League (WHL).

During the 2012–13 season, Theodore was a member of Team Canada under-18 squad when it won gold medals at both the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.[2]

On September 24, 2013, Theodore signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Anaheim Ducks.[3]

During the 2015–16 season, on January 13, 2016, Theodore scored his first NHL point with a goal in a game against the Ottawa Senators.[4]

On June 21, 2017, at the NHL Expansion Draft, Theodore was traded by the Ducks to the Vegas Golden Knights in order for the Ducks to keep established defenceman Josh Manson and ensure the Golden Knights selected Clayton Stoner.[5] Theodore was assigned to the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League (AHL) to begin the 2017–18 season,[6] but was recalled to the NHL on October 30.[7]

Prior to the 2018–19 season, Theodore signed a seven-year contract with the Golden Knights on September 24, 2018.[8]
