Scheidl and Shattock re-sign with K-Wings

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — The Kalamazoo Wings, ECHL affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning, have re-signed forwards Lane Scheidl and Tyler Shattock for the 2016-17 season.

Scheidl will skate in his fourth season of professional hockey and his third with the Wings. The 24-year-old posted career highs last year in games played (72), goals (17), assists (25) and points (42), while playing a critical role in the Wings’ late chase for a playoff spot. Scheidl’s most memorable stretch during the 2015-16 season occurred when he was able to chip in 10 goals in 10 games from March 13 through April 2.

Since turning pro in 2013, the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native has notched 84 points in 182 career games, including seven points in 34 games at the American Hockey League level with the Worcester Sharks. Before his debut in the professional ranks, Scheidl played 277 games in the Western Hockey League with Vancouver, Red Deer and Regina where he tallied 186 career points.

Shattock, 26, enters his seventh season of professional hockey in 2016-17, and his second with the Wings. The big-bodied forward, who was last year’s team captain, appeared in 59 games and tallied 35 points (14g-21a), while pacing the team with his physical style of play.

Shattock began his pro career in 2010 with the American Hockey League’s Peoria Rivermen. He has 258 career AHL games under his belt and 127 more in the ECHL. A native of Vernon, British Columbia, Shattock spent four years in the Western Hockey League with Kamloops and Calgary before turning pro. He was a member of the Calgary Hitmen’s championship team in 2010 and skated in that year’s Memorial Cup.
