Shore scored a goal on his lone shot in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss. The trade-deadline acquisition from Anaheim logged his first goal as a Blue Jacket, opening the scoring nine minutes into the first period. The 25-year-old received less than 10 minutes of ice time for the night and has just five goals and 12 points in 42 games on the year. Shore posted 10-plus goals and 30-plus points in each of his first two NHL seasons while with Dallas, but has bounced from the Stars to the Ducks to the Blue Jackets since the start of 2019-20. He doesn't figure to be much more than a bottom-six role player going forward.
Shore was acquired by the Blue Jackets from the Ducks on Monday in a swap for Sonny Milano, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports. Shore registered four goals, six helpers and 47 hits in 39 games for the Ducks this season. The addition of the Ontario native will help shore up the forward depth for Columbus, which has been decimated by injuries. The 25-year-old figures to take on a bottom-six role but could earn the occasional look in a second-line role.
Shore scored a goal and dished three hits in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Golden Knights. Shore tied the game at one in the dying seconds of the first period, but his contribution was surpassed by multiple big performances on both teams. The 25-year-old seems to have reclaimed his spot in the lineup lately -- he's posted four points in his last eight games. He's at 10 points, 47 shots and 47 hits through 39 games this season. Shore will likely peak at a fourth-line role, which likely won't interest fantasy owners.
Shore scored a goal and fired four shots on net across 10:02 in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Flames. Shore pocketed his first goal since Dec. 27, and he now has three points over the past four games. The 25-year-old's ice time has been flaky, however, as he's been a healthy scratch in six of 11 games since the All-Star break and has averaged 12:06 per contest when in the lineup.
Shore had a goal and a power-play assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights. Shore had the secondary helper on Cam Fowler's go-ahead goal in the second period. The forward then potted an insurance tally at 9:46 of the third. That goal would become the game-winner after the Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt scored twice in the final two minutes of the game. Shore is up to six points, 30 shots on goal and 25 hits in 22 appearances this year. We don't expect many more performances like Friday from the 25-year-old, but it did get him to the 100-point mark for his career.
