Indy picks up scoring threat in forward Quentin Shore
Third-year forward brings 74 points in 115 ECHL gamesSep 19, 2018
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indy Fuel, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs, announced Wednesday that they have agreed to terms with forward Quentin Shore for the 2018-19 ECHL season.
Shore, 24, split the 2017-18 season between the Florida Everblades and Quad City Mallards, recording 13 goals and 18 assists in 59 games. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound forward logged five multi-point games with the Everblades – including a four-point outing on January 12 against Jacksonville – before he was traded to the Mallards in early March in exchange for forward Sam Warning.
A third-year professional, Shore made his ECHL debut with the Manchester Monarchs in 2016-17, tallying 43 points (18g, 25a) in 56 games before joining the AHL’s Ontario Reign for the end of the season. After logging one goal over a 13-game stint with the Reign, the Denver native returned to the ECHL for the 2017 Kelly Cup Playoffs, where he helped the Monarchs climb within a win of the Kelly Cup Finals. Shore’s 15 points (6g, 9a) in 19 postseason games ranked second on his team and third among all league rookies.
Prior to turning pro, Shore spent four years at the University of Denver, where he compiled 98 points (40g, 58a) in 151 total NCAA contests. The sixth round selection of the Ottawa Senators in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft (No. 168 Overall) also boasts an array of experience in international competition. Shore represented the United States in the 2014 IIHF U20 World Junior Championship, in addition to winning Gold in the 2012 U18 World Junior Championship.
Shore becomes the 17th player to sign with the Fuel ahead of the 2018-19 season, with the club’s roster consisting of 11 forwards, five defensemen and one goaltender. Additional players are expected to be assigned to Indy from the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs in the coming weeks before Fuel training camp starts on Sunday, Sept. 30.
