The 27-year-old forward has three points (two goals, one assist) in 21 games this season after signing a one-year contract with the Maple Leafs on July 1.

Chosen by the Los Angeles Kings in the third round (No. 82) of the 2011 NHL Draft, Shore has 56 points (17 goals, 39 assists) in 257 NHL games with the Kings, Ottawa Senators, Calgary Flames and Maple Leafs. He had 16 points (three goals, 13 assists) in 37 games for Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Kontinental Hockey League in 2018-19.

Dmitry Kulikov was placed on injured reserve by the Jets on Wednesday. The defenseman is projected to be out until the NHL All-Star break in January with an upper-body injury sustained against the Anaheim Ducks on Nov. 29.

Kulikov has four points (one goal, three assists) and is averaging 19:42 of ice-time in 25 games this season.
