Shore was signed for the rest of the year Sunday by the Canucks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province and Sun reports. He hasn't played in the NHL this year, as he's been playing in the Swiss league instead. In his last two NHL seasons, Shore notched four goals in 13 games, so don't expect a high-scoring fantasy player.
Shore signed a contract with Kloten of Switzerland's National League A on Friday, TSN reports. Shore was a second-round (44th overall) draft pick by the Panthers in 2009. The hulky center recorded nine goals and 15 assists in 80 NHL games split between the Panthers and Flames, and now he's set to play overseas for the first time in his career.
The Flames have assigned Shore to AHL Stockton. Shore, who recorded an assist in two games with the big club this season, will finish up the current campaign with Stockton, where the 25-year-old forward has tallied 10 goals and 35 points in 56 AHL games to date.
Shore was called-up to Calgary on Thursday. Shore's recall is likely as a replacement for Lance Bouma (oblique) who was ruled out for the remainder of the season. The center has yet to suit up for the Flames this season, but has registered 10 goals and 25 helpers in 56 contests for AHL Stockton this year. An extensive slate of games Thursday should give fantasy owners several alternatives to the untested 25-year-old.
Drew Shore accepted his qualifying offer with the Flames on Wednesday.
