Maple Leafs' Nick Shore: Returning to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore (illness) will play against the Rangers on Friday, Aaron Vickers of 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Nick Shore: Shifts to Great White North
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore was traded with Marian Gaborik in exchange for Ottawa's Dion Phaneuf and Nate Thompson, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Shore will be an unrestricted free agent after this season, and the Kings may hope to sign him as a cheap bottom-six forward for the future. The 25-year-old center has a mediocre stat line, with four goals and 15 points through 48 games. However, he doesn't hurt the team either, as he starts 61.2 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone but still manages a Corsi of 52.0 percent.

Kings' Nick Shore: Three points in last two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore delivered two assists in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

Shore has three points (one goal, two assists) in his last two games. He's on a career pace, but that still doesn't make him fantasy worthy. Shore has just 15 points in 48 games this season .

Kings' Nick Shore: Slated to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore (lower body) is in line to rejoin the lineup for Thursday's matchup against the Predators, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Shore's lower-body ailment cost him the team's previous two contests, but it appears he's ready to retake the ice for Thursday's tilt in Nashville. His output rate on the offensive end of the ice has improved in his fourth NHL season, but Shore still owns just 12 points (three goals, nine assists) through 45 games this season. Shore's expected to once again fill a bottom-six role for the club.

Kings' Nick Shore: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Stars, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Shore skated Tuesday, so he's definitely making progress in his recovery, but he'll likely need to log several full practices before returning to game action. The Kings should release another update on the 25-year-old pivot's status once he's given the green light to return to the lineup.

Kings' Nick Shore: Out with lower-body ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore will not play Wednesday against the Flames due to a lower-body injury, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Shore's absence Wednesday allows Andy Andreoff to draw into the lineup against the Flames, but the lines have yet to surface for the affair. With the All-Star Game on tap, he will have some time to rest up for a potential return next Tuesday against the Stars.

Kings' Nick Shore: Two-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore notched two assists in a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia on Monday.

The apples brought Shore to 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 31 games this season, while he's averaging 15:03 of ice time and mainly skating on the bottom six. After being a scratch for large stretches towards the end of 2016-17, the 25-year-old has skated in every game but two this season, a positive sign that he's securing a role in Los Angeles. Shore is nearly halfway to hitting his career-high point total of 17, but unless he receives a promotion into the top six, it would be surprising to see him climb much higher that.

Kings' Nick Shore: Nets overtime winner against Anaheim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore scored the overtime-winning goal Tuesday against the Ducks.

It was the second goal of the season for the third-line center, who is up to four points through 12 contests. Shore's lethal sniping ability was on full display on the play, as he beat netminder Ryan Miller in the extra frame with a perfectly placed shot. The 25-year-old won't post significant offensive totals and has never surpassed 17 points in his career, so aside from the occasional goal, the depth forward won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

Kings' Nick Shore: In line to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore (undisclosed) appears slated to rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Shore missed each of the last three games due to the undisclosed issue, but centered the team's third line alongside Michael Cammalleri and Trevor Lewis during morning skate. That will likely be the alignment for the Kings when they take to the ice Thursday evening versus the Leafs.

Kings' Nick Shore: Will not play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore (undisclosed) will not rejoin the Kings against the Blues on Monday, Lou Korac of reports.

Shore was able to take part in Monday's game-day skate, but is apparently not ready to return to action. Prior to getting hurt, the center was bogged down in a seven-game pointless streak, during which he has registered a mere 11 shots on goal, eight hits and two blocks. Even once given the green light, fantasy owners may want to wait until the Colorado native shakes off his dry spell before utilizing him in their lineups.

Kings' Nick Shore: Looks unfit to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shore (undisclosed) is projected to be an injured scratch for Saturday's game against the Bruins, reports.

It appears as though Brooks Laich and Michael Amadio will handle the center duties in the bottom six with Shore ailing. His next chance to suit up will arrive Monday for another road game against the Blues.
