Prospect Profile: Nick Shore

When I visited Manchester last month, one player that was drawing acclaim from both those within and outside of the organization was Nick Shore, who has 35 points (14-21=35) through 57 games of his first full professional season. Though the production has been there all season, it’s almost misleading to refer so quickly to his point totals, as his separation from other productive AHL players comes by virtue of his ability to provide less tangible contributions that aren’t necessarily conveyed in box scores. He’s used in all situations, is excellent on faceoffs, and is a responsible two-way center with a keen hockey intelligence. The Kings appear to have a very intriguing prospect on their hands in Shore, who was selected in the third round in 2011 and posted a goal and an assist in 16:52 of work during a preseason game against his hometown Colorado Avalanche on September 20.

From FOX Sports West and Kings Weekly, here’s the latest Prospect Profile:
