After spending this season playing for Kloten in the Swiss-A league, the Canucks are expected to sign former Florida Panther and Calgary Flame Drew Shore to a contract for the remainder of the 2016-2017 season.
26-year old Shore scored a team high 48 points to go along with 24 goals in Kloten’s 50 games this season. He ranked sixth in the league in points and third in the league in goals.
Shore was drafted by the Florida Panthers in the second round of the 2009 NHL entry draft.
He has appeared in 80 NHL games with the Panthers and Flames scoring 24 points in 80 games. Shore played in the NCAA for the University of Denver where he scored 118 points in 123 games, and was the team’s captain in his last season there.
Shore is currently on waivers, and is expected to sign with the team should he clear.
Shore is on waivers right now. He is expected to clear and play tomorrow for #Canucks. 26 year-old has 4pts/13gms CGY and 20pts/67gms FLA
