Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jeff Shantz
Midway through Jeff Shantz's junior career with the Regina Pats of the WHL, the Chicago Blackhawks selected him in the second round of the 1992 Entry Draft. In his final season as a junior, he amassed 83 points in only 64 games and was named to the WHL East first all-star team. Shantz's next stop was the NHL.

In his first season with the Blackhawks, he played 52 games in Chicago and spent some time with the IHL's Indianapolis Ice. The 1994-95 season saw him split time between Chicago and Indianapolis. Shantz and the Blackhawks made a serious run for the Cup that season but fell short in the Conference finals.

Shantz remained with the Hawks for three and a half more seasons before he was traded to the Calgary Flames, where he became an assistant captain.
