Devin Shore Traded to Anaheim

The Dallas Stars have traded 24-year-old centre Devin Shore to the Anaheim Ducks in return for veteran winger Andrew Cogliano, 31, who had the fourth-longest consecutive games streak in the NHL (830 games from 2007-2018).

A second round draft pick of the Stars in 2012 (61st overall), Shore spent three years at the University of Maine before turning pro in 2015. He became a full-time NHLer in 2016, playing all 82 games for the Stars during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 season.

Shore has 5 goals and 17 points in 42 games this season as the Stars’ third line centre. He is a reliable shutdown centre with an ability to suppress shots against and was called upon regularly to kill penalties for the Stars. He has 29 goals and 82 points in 209 career NHL games.

This trade is an attempt by both the Stars and Ducks to shake up struggling teams, with Anaheim (19-18-9) currently mired in an 11-game losing streak and Dallas (23-19-4) bemoaning a “culture of mediocrity.”
