Drew Shore(36) Florida Panthers

Florida Panthers‘ 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft (#44 overall), rookie center Drew Shore(36) is getting his opportunity to impress in both the minors with affiliate San Antonio Rampage and up in the show with the big club.

He notched his first NHL goal (not the prettiest of shots that’s ever made it inside the net) in his 10th game to go with the three helpers he already has. For a player listed at 6’3″ 200 lbs., he deceptively looks a bit smaller than he’s credited for and has the hands of a smaller-sized forward.

In 41 AHL games he has 10 goals and 20 assists for a good team that is challenged to string together wins. He’s also a +4 plus/minus.

He was named to the lineup for the AHL All-Star Game and score a goal and an assist to help the Western Conference to a 7-6 victory.

The 22-year old, who left his last year of college hockey to turn pro after a point per game production, is signed through 2015 and looks to already be paying dividends for the scouts that found him.
