Oak River’s Shamray Signs With Mount Royal University

After spending the past four years in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, the 21-year-old defenceman out of Oak River has decided to pursue hockey at the university level, signing a standard agreement with Mount Royal University in Calgary this past week. 

Playing his bantam and midget hockey with the AAA Yellowhead Chiefs, Shamray put together a solid stat line, most notably in the assists column. He ended his AAA career with 23 goals, 65 points and 162 penalty minutes in 109 regular season games. He made his MJHL debut wit the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, dressing in 58 games in 2015-16, putting up six goals and 27 points. 

Shamray then moved on to the Dauphin Kings, where he played 90 games between 2016-18, collecting nine goals, 45 points and 176 penalty minutes. He had a five-game stint in the Western Hockey League with the Lethbridge Hurricanes where he picked up one major penalty, before coming back to the MJHL – this time suiting up for 20 games with the OCN Blizzard, where he earned four goals, 12 points and 41 penalty minutes. 

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound blueliner finished his MJHL career in Dauphin as team captain for the 2018-19 season, leading the team in points with 14 goals, 47 points and 100 penalty minutes, before putting up a point-a-game in four postseason contests with the Kings. The Mount Royal University Cougars went 12-11-5 in 2018-19, finishing the season in fifth place in the Canada West Division.
