JAMES SHEPPARD  Canada

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 45001

BIRTHYEAR 1988-04-25 BIRTHPLACEHalifax, NS, CAN
AGE 28 NATION Canada
POSITION C/LW SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 185 cm / 6'1" WEIGHT 98 kg / 216 lbs
YOUTH TEAM Sackville MHA CONTRACT 15/16
NHL DRAFT 2006 round 1 #9 overall by Minnesota Wild

Sheppard is a forward with good size and a pretty well-rounded game. Sometimes displays both scoring and playmaking ability, as well as two-way instincts. Gets involved physically in an energy role. A natural center, he can also play the wing effectively.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)
