Shane McColgan

(age 21)

The Portland Winterhaws' center from Manhattan Beach, Calif., was born on this day.

McGolgan, 5-9 and 170 pounds, had played in nine games for Portland this season, notching three assists, going into the New Year's Eve match with Kelowna.

He was a fifth-round draft pick of the NHL New York Rangers in 2011.

The Hawks acquired him this season in a trade with the Western Hockey League's Saskatoon Blades, in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2014 WHL bantam draft and a third-round pick in the 2015 bantam draft.

Last season, he had 19 goals and 47 assists for 66 points in 69 games with Saskatoon.
