PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Senior men's ice hockey defenseman Steven Shamanski (Carberry, Manitoba) signed with the Fort Wayne Komets of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) and he made his professional debut on Sunday (April 6) in the Komets’ 2-1 win over Toledo.
The Komets have two games remaining in their regular-season schedule and are currently in eighth, the final playoff spot in the eastern conference.
Shamanksi played the final 130 consecutive games of his Friar career and totaled 11 goals and 25 assists for 36 points in 141 games at Providence. This season, he had a career-best six goals and added 10 assists for a career-high 16 points. Two of his 10 assists came during the playoffs and he scored the game-tying goal at Frozen Fenway in Providence’s 1-1 tie versus Merrimack (Jan. 1). He finished the season with a plus-10 rating and was one of five Friars to score a short-handed goal.
As a junior, Shamanski was selected to the All-Hockey East Honorable Mention Team and he is a three-time Hockey East All-Academic team honoree. A two-time Hockey East Weekly Top Performer as a senior, he was also a 2014 Senior Class Award Top-20 Finalist (Nov. 7) and was named to the 2013 Ledyard Classic All-Tournament Team (Dec. 30).
As a senior co-captain, Shamanski helped lead the Friars back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001 and to their first NCAA Tournament win since 1991, a 4-0 first round blanking of Quinnipiac (March 28). He also helped the Friars to three consecutive Hockey East Semifinal appearances for the first time in program history.
