Shawn Horcoff News


Shawn Horcoff (born September 17, 1978) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre and captain for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected in the fourth round of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, 99th overall, by the Oilers, the team with which he has spent his entire NHL career.

Horcoff played his first college season with Michigan State University, in the CCHA, in 1996. After a respectable first season in which he was considered a contender for the CCHA All-Rookie Team , Horcoff improved his numbers as a sophomore in 1997–98, despite playing in fewer games than the year before. This led to him being drafted by the Oilers in the 1998 Draft. The following season, 1998–99, Horcoff again improved his totals, and was named to the CCHA All-Academic Team at season's end.

The 1999–00 season was Horcoff's final year with Michigan State, and he posted career high totals in goals, assists and points. Along with a second CCHA All-Academic Team spot, Horcoff received a number of major awards, including CCHA Player of the Year. He was also a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, given to the top player in college hockey.
