Douglas Shedden
Douglas Shedden
Center
Shoots:
Born: Apr 29, 1961
Birthplace: Wallaceburg, ON, Canada
Drafted: PIT / 1980 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 5th (93rd overall)
While growing up in Barrie, Ontario, Doug Shedden was surrounded with quality hockey players who helped keep his eyes on the prize of making it to the top. His closest friend at the time was future NHL superstar Mike Gartner. He also encountered Wayne Gretzky on a regular basis while playing junior hockey for Hamilton, Kitchener, and Sault Ste. Marie of the OHA.

Shedden was selected 93rd overall in the 1980 Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins. He joined the club the following year and, after a stint in the minors, quickly established himself as an offensive style player equipped with strong passing skills, a hard shot, and an ability to see the ice well.

At the start of his fourth season with the Pens, Shedden won the line lottery, taking on rookie Mario Lemieux as his centreman. Shedden's numbers immediately rose to career highs as he netted 35 goals that year. He was good for 32 more goals during the following campaign before being traded to the Red Wings in 1986.

Shedden's post-Pens career, however, was much less offensively prolific. Although he skated with Steve Yzerman in Detroit and with Peter Stastny in Quebec, he was unable to maintain his earlier form.

In 1988, he signed as a free agent with the Leafs' organization where he bounced between the parent club and their AHL affiliate in Newmarket. But in 1991, he was struck with a serious knee injury that effectively ended his NHL career. Still able to skate, however, he went overseas to play in Italy and Switzerland before rounding out his on-ice career in 1993 with Muskegon of the IHL.
