Junior forward Drew Shore, the leading scorer for the University of Denver for the past two seasons, has signed with the Florida Panthers, giving up his final year of college eligibility.
Shore had 22 goals and 53 points in 42 games for the third-place Pioneers. He finished his career with 118 points.
Denver is still expected to have a pair of Shores in the lineup next season — junior-to-be Nick Shore and incoming freshman Quentin Shore. They are all brothers.
Denver also will be keeping an eye on Jason Zucker, a forward prospect who the Minnesota Wild want to sign.
