2014-15

2013-14

The Canucks grabbed Shinkaruk with the 24th overall pick of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Originally expected to be selected in the top half of the first round, Shinkaruk apparently fell due to concerns about his size (5-11, 175). While Shinkaruk may not have prototypical size, he plays with unlimited energy while possessing top notch offensive skills and decent skating. The 18-year-old center was dominant in his past two seasons at the WHL level, totaling 177 points (86 goals, 91 assists) in 130 games. While the potential is there for Shinkaruk to develop into a top-six forward at the NHL level, he will need to bulk up and learn how to unleash his offensive arsenal against tougher competition before getting a long look from the Canucks. But he may just be one of the steals of the draft in a few years.
