  • Jets' Nick Shore: Notches assist Saturday

    Shore picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Shore's helper on a Logan Shaw tally snapped his personal 27-game point drought. The 27-year-old Shore now has six points, 54 hits, 40 shots and a minus-1 rating in 59 contests between the Jets and the Maple Leafs this year. With a limited fourth-line role, Shore isn't likely to interest fantasy owners.

  • Jets' Nick Shore: Missing from scoresheet

    Shore failed to record a point versus the Blackhawks on Sunday, his 21st consecutive contest without getting on the scoresheet.

    Shore has logged a mere 8:47 of ice time per game during his pointless streak, so his opportunities have been limited. The center hasn't put a shot on goal in his last six outings and managed a mere two hits, so fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him providing much in terms of value the rest of the way.

  • Jets' Nick Shore: Throws body around

    Shore failed to record a point in Sunday's 1-0 loss to Nashville, finishing with three hits in 6:09 of ice time.

    Shore remains stuck on five points, having failed to produce a point for the sixth straight game. He boasts an impressive shooting percentage (14.3) but hasn't played enough minutes to make an impact, averaging roughly nine minutes per contest in 2019-20.

  • Jets' Nick Shore: Lights lamp in loss

    Shore scored his third goal of 2019-20 in a 4-1 loss to St. Louis on Sunday.

    Shore only logged 10:28 of ice time in Sunday's loss, but he made the most of it by scoring a goal. The fourth-line center isn't too relevant from a fantasy standpoint, as Shore's goal against the Blues was just his fifth point in 31 games this season.

  • Jets' Nick Shore: Earns assist against Flyers

    Shore recorded an assist in Sunday's 7-3 defeat of Philadelphia.

    It was the first point for Shore in a Jets sweater, having joined the club off waivers Dec. 4. The center figures to continue holding down a bottom-six role, though could find himself occasionally relegated to the press box once Bryan Little (ear) is cleared to play.

  • Jets' Nick Shore: Claimed off waivers

    Shore was claimed off the waiver wire by Winnipeg from Toronto on Wednesday.

    Shore served as a healthy scratch in four of the Maple Leafs' previous five outings, though he scored a goal in his lone appearance. It seems the veteran center wasn't going to be in new coach Sheldon Keefe's future plans and will now play for his fourth Canadian team in his five-year NHL career. With the Jets, the Denver native should be in the mix for consistent minutes and could bump David Gustafsson from the lineup ahead of Thursday's clash with Dallas.

  • Maple Leafs' Nick Shore: Lands on waivers

    The Maple Leafs waived Shore for the purpose of assignment to AHL Toronto on Tuesday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Shore has played 21 games this year, recording three points and 17 hits. HIs departure hints that Mitch Marner (ankle) could be near a return. If Shore's scooped off waivers, he'll land with his fifth team in three seasons.

  • Maple Leafs' Nick Shore: First points in blue and white

    Shore scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over Detroit on Saturday.

    They were Shore's first points in blue and white. He continues to rotate through the fourth line and that limits any fantasy value he might have.

  • Maple Leafs' Nick Shore: Rotating in fourth-line role

    Shore has no shots and one minor penalty in two games with the Leafs.

    It looks like coach Mike Babcock will be rotating Shore and Jason Spezza on the fourth line, and both will get limited ice time. Shore will likely help in PK situations, but won't be valuable in the fantasy arena.

  • Maple Leafs' Nick Shore: Returning to NHL

    Shore secured a one-year, $750,000 deal with Toronto on Monday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

    Shore spent the 2018-19 campaign in the KHL with Magnitogorsk, in which he tallied three goals, 13 helpers and 21 PIM in 37 appearances. While the 26-year-old should be able to land a spot on the 23-man roster, minutes may be hard to come by outside of the penalty kill, which gives him mid-range fantasy value, at best.

  • Nick Shore: Inks deal with KHL club

    Shore signed a contract with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL on Friday, TSN reports.

    Shore played for three NHL teams last season -- Los Angeles, Ottawa and Calgary -- totaling five goals and 19 points over 64 games. He was not tendered a qualifying offer with the Flames, so he hit the open market in June. Shore is only 26 years old, so there's still plenty of time for him to revive his career overseas and potentially return to the NHL someday.

  • Nick Shore: Not tendered by Flames

    Shore, who was not given a qualifying offer by Calgary, is set to become an unrestricted free agent, Kristen Anderson of Postmedia reports.

    Shore had a pretty hectic 2017-18 campaign, registering five goals and 19 points in 64 games with three different NHL clubs. The 25-year-old is a solid bottom-six center and should fill that role once again regardless of what team signs him this offseason.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Wraps up crazy 2017-18 season

    Shore played 64 regular season games -- 49 with Los Angeles, six with Ottawa and nine with Calgary -- totaling five goals and 19 points.

    Shore wasn't very effective anywhere, but suiting up for three different NHL teams in one season can get hectic. Still, the 19 points were a career best for the Colorado native. Assuming the 25-year-old can settle into a spot with Calgary, he could start producing at a decent clip for a bottom-six winger.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Struggles in faceoff circle upon return

    Shore skated for 12:40 in his return from an illness Tuesday night in a 1-0 home win over the Oilers.

    Shore didn't mark the scoresheet and lost four faceoffs on six attempts, but perhaps he was just a bit rusty after missing the previous four games. Either way, fantasy owners shouldn't be focusing too heavily on a bottom-six role player who has been associated with three different NHL teams this season alone -- Shore was also with the Kings and Senators before Ottawa traded him to the Flames for a 2019 seventh-round pick in late February.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Gearing up for Flames debut

    Shore (illness) will play against the Rangers on Friday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

    Shore has missed the last two games due to travel issues and this illness, but he's ready to make his Flames debut. The 25-year-old forward had four goals and 15 points with the Kings and one assist with the Senators earlier this season. He's set to slot onto the fourth line Friday, so he isn't expected to make immediate fantasy contributions.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Doubtful for Friday

    Shore (illness) isn't expected to play in Friday's game against the Rangers, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

    Shore's return to the ice for the Flames has been delayed by both travel issues and an illness, placing him in a position to miss his third straight game since the Flames acquired him prior to the trade deadline Monday. He's posted an underwhelming 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) over 55 games between the Kings and Senators so far in 2017-18, but the Flames hope a change of scenery will spark a fire under the 25-year-old winger. If he misses the contest as expected, Shore stands a good chance of debuting for the Flames on Monday against the Penguins.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Hampered by illness

    Shore is under the weather and is considered doubtful against the Avalanche on Wednesday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    It appears Shore's debut with the Flames will have to wait. The natural center needs just one point to match his career high of 17 from the 2016-17 campaign. Once healthy, the winger will likely knock Curtis Lazar or Troy Brouwer out of the lineup, but could also find himself serving as a healthy scratch periodically.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Still traveling

    Shore has yet to join his new club, which puts his availability against the Stars on Tuesday into question, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Shore -- who was acquired Monday via trade -- probably won't be rushed into action, so fantasy owners may want to anticipate him making his Flames debut versus Colorado on Wednesday -- although no official announcement has come from the team. Even once he arrives, the Denver native could struggle for a consistent role, given he tallied a mere 16 points in 55 outings with the Kings and Senators.

  • Flames' Nick Shore: Dealt to Calgary

    The Senators traded Shore to the Flames in exchange for a 2019 seventh-round draft pick Monday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Shore must be tired of moving, as he'd just arrived in Ottawa in a deal that involved Dion Phaneuf two weeks ago. However, it makes a lot of sense that the Senators -- who have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs -- would start collecting draft picks. Shore, who has 50 points (14 goals, 36 assists) in 227 career contests, should carry his bottom-six role over to Cowtown.
