• Shore helped lead Team USA to a gold medal at the 2009 Under-18 IIHF World Championships, beating Russia 5-0 on home ice.

• There was no family history in hockey for the Shore family before Drew -- his dad played lacrosse in College and his mom played semi-professional tennis – but now he has three younger brothers following his footsteps. He was joined in Ann Arbor this season by his younger brother Nick, who played for the U.S. National Under-17, becoming the first sibling pair to play at the NTDP at the same time. His other brothers, Quentin and Baker also play hockey.

• Nicknamed “Shoresy”, the Denver, Colorado native will return home to attend the University of Denver (WCHA) in the fall of 2009.

• He played on his first hockey team in Littleton, Colorado and his childhood hockey idol was Peter Forsberg while he played for his hometown Avalanche.

• If he could have dinner with any three people he would choose: Lebron James, Sidney Crosby and Michael Phelps – “they all dominate their sport and are great leaders”.
