Highlights
1-time QMJHL Second All-Star Team 1

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)
