Devin Shore named OJHL Rookie of the Year

The Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) has selected Devin Shore of the Whitby Fury as the OJHL Rookie of the Year.

The 17-year old rookie from Ajax took the OJHL by storm this season, leading the Fury with 29 goals, while finishing second on the club in scoring with 58 points, all this despite missing numerous games while attending the World Junior ‘A’ Challenge. Already one of the keys to the club’s special teams units, Shore was a dominant force throughout his first junior hockey season, making an immediate impact by starting the season with a six-game point-scoring streak that included five goals and 10 points.

Shore joined the Fury this season after playing for The Hill Academy in Vaughan. Shore chose to commit to the University of Maine Black Bears (2013) NCAA Division I program prior to being selected in the fourth round of the 2011 OHL Priority Selection, 69th overall, by the Barrie Colts, paving his way to make the jump to the OJHL.

Shore has more than lived up to expectations this season finishing 12th and 24th overall respectively among all OJHL players, and also played significant minutes on both the power play and penalty kill. He led the Fury with nine power player goals, while also notching 17 power play assists, tied for the sixth best total in the league. Shore was also an important cog on the penalty kill, notching two shorthanded goals, helping the OJHL’s fourth best unit. Shore’s season included 17 multi-point games and a 14-game point-scoring streak from Dec. 18 to Feb. 3 that helped him win OJHL South-East Conference Gongshow Gear Player-of-the-Month honours for January.

Other highlights of Shore’s impressive rookie campaign include a dominant performance at the 2011 World Junior ‘A’ Challenge in Langley, B.C. as a member of Team Canada East. He would record a tournament leading six points in four games played to earn Most Valuable Player honours during a silver medal performance. Shore was also a member of the OJHL East Division All-Stars that competed at the inaugural Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge that was held in Smiths Falls, and was named an OJHL Second Team All-Star, as well as First Team All-Rookie, the only OJHL player named to both squads.

All season long, he has been closely followed by NHL Central Scouting, steadily moving up the draft rankings. Most recently he was ranked in the third round of their mid-term rankings, 75th overall, among North American skaters.
