Cats Prospect G David Shantz Backstops Peterborough to 1-1 Mark in Memorial Cup

SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers prospect G David Shantz and his Peterborough Petes squad own a 1-1 mark in their first two games of the 2006 Memorial Cup Tournament. The Petes edged Quebec 3-2 on Friday, May 19 and dropped a 4-2 decision to Moncton on Monday, May 22. Peterborough plays the Vancouver Giants on Tuesday night in the Pete's final game of round robin competition.

Shantz, 20, has appeared in both games for Peterborough during the Memorial Cup going 1-1 with a 3.00 GAA and a .929 save percentage. He made 45 saves in the Petes 3-2 win in his club's first game of the tournament on Friday versus Quebec.

The Hamilton, Ontario native played in all 19 games for the Petes during the Ontario Hockey League playoffs, posting a 16-3 mark with a 2.61 GAA and a .925 save percentage. He appeared in 49 regular season contests with Peterborough posting a 31-16-1 mark with a 2.87 GAA. He was originally drafted by Florida with its second choice (37th overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

The Petes advanced to the Memorial Cup, after clinching the Ontario Hockey League title with a four-game sweep of the London Knights. Peterborough won the J. Ross Robertson Cup as the OHL champions for the ninth time, after going 10-0 at home during the playoffs.

Since 1919 the Memorial Cup has been awarded to Canada's National Junior Champions. This prestigious and storied trophy will be presented for the 87th time this year in Moncton, N.B. Current Panthers who have won the Memorial Cup include Juraj Kolnik (Quebec-2000), Gregory Campbell (Kitchener-2003) and Gary Roberts (Guelph-1986).

The names on the Memorial Cup include many of hockey's greatest builders, coaches, managers and players. Thirty one members of the Hockey Hall of Fame have had their names engraved on the Memorial Cup including players like Guy Lafleur, Andy Bathgate, Harry Howell, Bobby Bauer, Ted Lindsay, Bernie Parent, Red Kelly and Toe Blake. Lionel Conacher, Canada's Athlete of the First Half Century, was a member of the Toronto Canoe Club's winning team in 1920. Conacher was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961. Builders of the game such as Father David Bauer, Scotty Bowman, Sam Pollack, Glen Sather and Frank Selke were members of Memorial Cup winning teams.
