Kevin Shattenkirk Career

Playing career

Shattenkirk competed in the 2002 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with the New Jersey Devils minor ice hockey team as a youth.

In the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche, Shattenkirk was drafted 14th overall. Before attending The Brunswick School in Greenwich, Connecticut, he played youth hockey for the New Jersey Devils Youth Hockey Club. He was drafted by the USA Hockey National Team Development Program and committed to Boston University of the NCAA's Hockey East conference, alongside fellow 2007 Avalanche draft pick Colby Cohen.

Shattenkirk helped the Terriers win the Frozen Four tournament in 2008–09 after a solid freshman season with the Terriers in 2007–08, which included him on the Hockey East All-Freshman Team. Shattenkirk progressed to Boston University to win the National Championship 4–3 against Miami University after being named in the NCAA Second All-American Team, helping with the overtime, championship-winning Colby Cohen goal.

On April 21, 2009, Shattenkirk and Brian Strait were named co-captain, as co-captain, of the Terriers for the 2009–10 season. However, Shattenkirk became the Terriers' sole captain and the first junior sole captain since 1961–62 season, and the first senior sole captain since Strait turned professional. He matched his sophomore goal total of 7 and 29 points in 38 games with the Terriers, although more attentive to defense, winning the Inside College Hockey Preseason Second Team award. Shattenkirk (along with Colby Cohen) was signed to a three-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche after losing in the Hockey East semi-finals to the University of Maine on April 3, 2010.

Shattenkirk was signed to an amateur try-out with the Lake Erie Monsters, Avalanche's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, on April 5, 2010. In a 5–4 win over the Abbotsford Heat on April 7, 2010, he made his career debut, adding an assist and a shootout goal.

Shattenkirk of Lake Erie was recalled by Colorado on November 4, 2010, making his NHL debut against the Vancouver Canucks on the same day. Shattenkirk was one of 12 rookies selected to attend the 2011 NHL All-Star festivities in Raleigh, North Carolina.

In a trade for four former first-rounders, Shattenkirk, Chris Stewart, and a conditional second-round pick were traded to the St. Louis Blues on February 19, 2011, exchanged for Erik Johnson, Jay McClement, and a conditional first-round pick. Shattenkirk made his home debut with the Blues at the Scottrade Center later that day, contributing to a tense 9–3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

Shattenkirk signed a lockout in Finland on November 26, 2012, adding fellow Blues teammate Kris Russell with HC TPS of the SM-liiga, effectively delaying the 2012-2013 season. He appeared in 12 games before the labor dispute was settled, winning two goals and six points for TPS.

Shattenkirk and St. Louis agreed to a four-year, $17 million contract on June 26, 2013.

The Blues were unable to work out an extension with Shattenkirk as he approached a free agency in the last year of his deal, during the 2016–17 season. Shattenkirk was traded (alongside Pheonix Copley) to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Zach Sanford, Brad Malone, a 2017 first-round draft pick and a conditional second-round draft pick in 2019. Shattenkirk was the fourth all-time top defensemen in franchise history after playing in 425 games and receiving 258 points, placing fifth all-time amongst defensemen.

Shattenkirk agreed to a four-year, $26.65 million contract with the New York Rangers on July 1, 2017. Shattenkirk had been linked to the Rangers through rumors for months leading up to his free agency, which erupted after a June 23 trade in which New York traded away Derek Stepan, clearing up cap space. Shattenkirk will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, and he will be out of the game indefinitely, according to the company on January 19, 2018. It was later discovered that he had torn the meniscus during training camp and had played through the first half of the season before opting for surgery. Despite being predicted to return for the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs and the regular season, the Rangers eventually fell out of playoff contention and eventually decided to shut down Shattenkirk for the season.

Shattenkirk's contract was purchased by the New York Rangers after a poor 2018--19 season in which he scored only 2 goals and 28 points in 73 games.

Shattenkirk has signed the Tampa Bay Lightning to a one-year, $1.75 million contract for the 2019-20 season. Shattenkirk will win the Stanley Cup as a member of the Lightning, with three goals and ten assists for 13 points in the playoffs.

Shattenkirk left the Lightning as a free agent on October 9, 2020, and the Anaheim Ducks signed him to a three-year, $11.7 million contract.
