Drafted: 2nd round, 44th overall in 2009 by Florida


Drew Shore is enjoying a fine start to his NHL career. Shore, who was a second round draft choice in 2009, joined the Florida Panthers after a stellar career at the University of Denver. The rookie center started the season in the AHL with the San Antonio Rampage, where he registered 30 points in 41 games, but was quickly called up to help bolster a Florida roster thinned by injuries once the lockout ended. Shore has almost immediately gone from call-up to being an integral part of the Panthers’ lineup. He currently is seventh among NHL rookies in scoring with 10 points in eighteen games. Shore is currently on a three-game scoring streak and has 5 points in his last five games. He is one of only two Panthers to carry a plus rating.

The former Pioneer might not have entered the league with the same fanfare or expectations as Jonathan Huberbeau but he has been just as impressive. Where Huberdeau has dazzled with his slick moves and superior offensive skills, Shore has quietly impressed by bringing an all-around game that makes him look more like a grizzled vet than a rookie getting his feet wet. Three seasons in the WCHA, 8 regular season games and 9 AHL playoff games with Rampage last season along with starting this season off in the “A” have given the Panthers an NHL-ready player who can handle playing in their top six. Shore has offensive ability, is strong on face-offs and can play on special teams. This is great news for the Panthers, who have been historically weak down the middle. The only thing Shore hasn’t done yet is score many goals. The chances have been there, so if he keeps working hard to create those chances, it should be only a matter of time before he starts converting more and garnering even more notice around the league.


The Good: Shore turned pro after a second consecutive successful college season. Shore is a gifted playmaker who regularly shows the ability to make plays to his teammates at a top-end level. He’s a multi-dimensional player offensively who has solid puck skills to along with a big shot. Shore has a nice gritty element to his game and plays pretty well in his own end. He has decent speed, too.

The Bad: Shore has no oustanding weakness, but some scouts question his skating a bit, as that’s been his historical weakness. Shore needs to continue to get stronger.

Projection: He could be a good second line center.


Hidden somewhere in Jonathan Huberdeau’s shadow is Drew Shore, another rookie who is enjoying a strong start to his NHL career with seven points in 15 games. He has great size at 6’3 and 200 pounds and has the potential to be an asset in the physical game.

While he does not have Huberdeau’s elite potential, Shore is nevertheless a great prospect coming into his own. Think of him more as an effective second-line player who is already approaching that level of play in his rookie campaign.
