Shane Prince (born November 16, 1992) is an American professional ice hockey forward who is currently a free agent, having played most recently for HC Davos of the National League (NL). He previously played for the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the second round (61st overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He was traded to the Islanders in February 2016.

Playing career

Junior

Prince was raised in Spencerport, New York[1] and played for the Syracuse Stars minor hockey program. Prince was selected by the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League in the 2008 OHL draft.[2] Prince joined the Rangers for the 2008-09 season at age 15, as the league's youngest player.

On January 8, 2010, midway through his second OHL season, Prince was acquired by the Ottawa 67's in exchange for a third-round draft pick. In his third season, Prince became one of the OHL's top offensive players. Prince was selected to the CHL Top Prospects game played at the Air Canada Centre and scored the lone goal for Team Cherry.[3] In April 2011, NHL Central Scouting ranked Prince 26th among North American forwards and defencemen in its annual final rankings for the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Professional

Prince was selected in the second round, 61st overall, in the 2011 NHL Draft by the Ottawa Senators. The pick Ottawa used to select Prince was obtained from the Boston Bruins in the Chris Kelly trade. Playing with the Binghamton Senators he scored his first professional goal against the Rochester Americans on November 17, 2012. He deflected a shot from teammate Tyler Eckford past Americans' goaltender David Leggio.

After recording 18 goals and 38 points in 47 games with the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League Prince made his NHL debut with the Senators on February 16, 2015 vs the Carolina Hurricanes. Prince registered an assist in the game.[4] He played one additional game with Ottawa and was then returned to Binghamton. Prince would go on to lead the Binghamton Senators in scoring tallying 28 Goals, 37 Assists for 65 Points while being selected to the season ending AHL All-Star Team.[5]

Prince started the 2015–16 season with the Ottawa Senators, scoring his first NHL goal on November 25, 2015 against the Colorado Avalanche in Colorado. He finished the game with two goals and one assist and was selected as the games first star.[6] Although being among the team leaders in points production per 60 minutes played he was often inexplicably scratched by Senators coach Dave Cameron.[7] To the angst of many Senators fans, Prince was traded to the New York Islanders on February 29, 2016, along with a seventh round pick, in exchange for a third round pick in the 2016 NHL draft.[8] Senators GM Bryan Murray stated in a press conference that Prince "wasn't playing much here, he deserved to play".[9] Six weeks after trading Prince the Ottawa Senators fired Dave Cameron and the entire coaching staff.[10]

Prince played a regular shift for the Islanders for the remainder of the season scoring 3 goals and 2 assists in 20 games helping New York qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Prince scored his first NHL playoff goal on April 17, 2016 in game three of the first round vs the Florida Panthers. The Islanders eliminated the Panthers in six games winning their first playoff series in 23 years. In game one of the second round vs the Tampa Bay Lightning, Prince scored two goals in the first period leading the Islanders to a 5-3 victory in Tampa on April 27, 2016.[11] Prince was named the game's first star and became the youngest Islander in 28 years to score two goals in a playoff game and the first Islander in 34 years to score a pair of first period goals in a playoff game.[12] The Lightning eliminated the Islanders in five games with Prince finishing tied for second in team playoff goals with three.[13]

On July 1, 2016, Prince signed a two-year contract extension with the Islanders valued at $1.7 million.[14]

As an impending restricted free agent following the 2017–18 season, Prince was not tendered an qualifying offer by the Islanders resulting in his status as a free agent on June 25, 2018.[15] On August 4, 2018, Prince opted to embark on a European career, after signing a two-year contract worth CHF 1.2 million with Swiss club, HC Davos of the National League (NL).[16] However, on November 16, Prince terminated his contract with Davos, stating that he intended to return to the NHL.[17]
