IceDogs Deal Shankar
The IceDogs have traded defenceman Zach Shankar to the Windsor Spitfires in exchange for a draft pick in 2019. Shankar was acquired in the offseason from North Bay to serve as a veteran mentor for the team's young defence corps.
The IceDogs have seen the emergence of many young defencemen this season, meaning at least one quality player was a healthy scratch almost every night. With this trade, the next development phase can continue for these young, talented D-men.
Shankar played in 24 IceDogs games counting 2 goals and 5 assists.
