History

2009-10: Quentin Shore played 33 games for the Colorado Thunderbirds midget minor team. He scored 13 goals with 13 assists and had 10 penalty minutes. Shore suffered a wrist injury which kept him out of the U16 Tier 1 tournament as the Thunderbirds captured Colorado’s first national championship.

2010-11: Shore became the third member of his family to skate for the US National Team Development program in Ann Arbor – following in the footsteps of older brothers Drew and Nick. He skated in 52 games for the NDTP U17 team and represented the USA in three tournaments. Shore scored 4 goals with 14 assists and had 28 penalty minutes in the regular season. He had 2 assists as the USA finished first in the Four Nations Cup in Illinois. In five games at the 2011 U17 World Hockey Challenge he had 3 assists and 8 penalty minutes as the USA finished second to Canada Ontario. Shore had one assist in three games at the Vlad Dzurilla U18 tournament in Slovakia. He committed to playing college hockey at the University of Denver in 2012-13.

2011-12: Shore skated for the NDTP U18 team and was part of the gold medal USA squad at the 2012 U18 World Junior Championship. In 60 games he led the U18 team with eight game-winning goals. He finished with 17 goals and 10 assists and had 31 penalty minutes. At the U18 WJC, he scored 3 goals with 2 assists and was plus-four with 2 penalty minutes in six games as the USA won the tournament for the third straight year. Shore was ranked 80th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.

2012-13: Shore became the third brother to play for the University of Denver, joining his older brother Nick Shore (LAK) , a junior, in the Pioneers lineup. Skating alongside fellow Colorado native Matt Tabrum for much of the season he scored 10 goals with 9 assists and had 22 penalty minutes in 39 games. Denver finished fifth in the WCHA but lost back-to-back games against eighth-seeded Colorado College in the first round of the conference tournament. The Pioneers received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, falling to New Hampshire 5-2, in the Northeast Region semifinals.

2013-14: Shore was the fourth-leading scorer for the University of Denver as a sophomore and played for the USA U20 team at the 2015 World Junior Championship. He scored 7 goals with 18 assists and was -5 with 16 penalty minutes in 33 games for the Pioneers. Denver finished sixth in the first-year NCHC but defeated fellow upstart Miami (which finished last in the regular season) in the conference championship game; earning an NCAA berth. Denver lost to Boston College, 6-2, in the Northeast Regional semifinals. Shore had 2 assists and was +1 with no penalties in five games for the USA at the WJC. The USA finished fifth, falling 5-3 to Russia in the quarterfinals. 

2014-15: Shore scored 10 goals in 39 games for the University of Denver as a junior and was -1 with 16 assists and 18 penalty minutes. The Pioneers finished fourth in the NCHC, earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament after defeating North Dakota, 5-1 in the NCHC third place game. The Pioneers topped Boston College, 5-2 before a 4-1 loss to eventual national champion Providence in the East Regional final. 

Talent Analysis

Shore is a two-way forward with decent size who doesn't really have one standout area of his game. He does have a knack for scoring big goals, although he is not a highly skilled offensive player. Shore does pay attention to the defensive side of the game, but would need to bulk up some to handle the bigger bodies at the pro level.

Future

Shore had a strong junior year at the University of Denver, achieving a career-high 26 points—despite a playing in a second-line role. His 10 goals include three game-winners, and he was a dominant .536 in the faceoff circle. Shore will finish his degree next season, and should join the Binghamton Senators in 2016.

The Ottawa Senators took a beating this year in both the NHL and AHL, but there was still plenty for fans to get excited about—and each Hockey’s Future award category has a clear winner.

Ottawa doesn’t have any prospects in the OHL or WHL right now, which is probably why the system is underestimated so often. The team’s biggest stories and best players are all found in the QMJHL, NCAA, and SHL. Read more»

The Ottawa Senators may not have any big names playing in the limelight of the OHL, but that doesn’t mean their system is in any trouble. Don’t let the team’s lack of Ontario-based prospects or AHL success fool you – much of the next big wave of talent will come from the NCAA and Sweden.

Of course, the team is no stranger to drafting overseas – a great deal of the modern team’s success can be attributed to scouting overseas. This year’s crop is no different, and once again the Senators boast a glut of Swedish prospects who have become larger assets than their middling draft positions indicate. Read more»

In this week’s Prospect Faceoff, we take a look at Quebec Remparts goaltender Callum Booth, who has been the team’s saving grace during a rough stretch. He will be opposed by a former first overall pick, Daniel Audette, who has a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. Also in this week’s edition, one underrated forward on North Dakota is garnering attention, as are a pair of draft-eligible skaters who are in weekend competition. Read more»

It has been an interesting fall for the Ottawa Senators and its prospects, and on the eve of the 2015-16 NHL Season, the final rosters for both the NHL and AHL clubs have been whittled down to a decision or two. Although the final rosters are mostly what those with their ear to the ground would expect, there are a few surprises—and it has been exciting to watch the immediate future for this talented group of youngsters take shape.

The Ottawa Senators became a competitive hockey team in the late nineties thanks in part to a handful of Swedish forwards that included Daniel Alfredsson, Magnus Arvedson, and Andreas Dackell. Now, the Senators have another trio of players developing in Sweden—and all three of them are exceeding expectations this year. Read more»
