Shayne Gostisbehere, selected by the Flyers in the third round (No. 78 overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft, is determined to continue beating the odds. At 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds, he will never turn heads with his size or strength even as he fills out and adds muscle. If the player nicknamed “Ghost” is to make it to the NHL, it will have to be with his smarts as well as his two-way skills. He exudes poise and a quiet sense of self-confidence. Very little, if anything, overwhelms him.

“My attitude is basically just keep pushing,” said Gostisbehere. “I've been told I would never play college hockey, I've had other people tell me I would never get drafted in the NHL and it's happened. For kids who are out there like me just keeping pushing and keep striving for your goal. If you get knocked down, just keep trying.”

The young defenseman’s development has already come a long way in a short time. After the Flyers Summer Development Camp, the young defenseman will participate in the U.S. National Team Developmental Camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships.

Gostisbehere (pronounced GOST-is-bear) has come a long way in his development in a short period of time. His hometown of Margate, FL is hardly a hotbed of ice hockey activity, but he starting playing at the age of five.

TAMPA -- Growing up outside of Sunrise, Union freshman D Shayne Gostisbehere attended Florida Panthers games on a regular basis as his grandparents held season tickets since the inaugural season in 1993-94.

Now the 19-year-old who grew up in Margate idolizing Pavel Bure is playing the biggest game of his hockey career on Florida soil as a regular blue liner for the East Coast Athletic Conference champions appearing in their first Frozen Four.

Union sophomore defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere's week got off to a good start Monday when he was invited to participate in the U.S. National Development Camp for the U.S. World Junior team.

This weekend, Gostisbehere could be an NHL draft pick.

The NHL draft starts Friday night at the Consol Energy Center with the first round. But it will be Saturday that Gostisbehere could hear his name during the final six rounds.

Gostisbehere was ranked 148th among North American skaters in the final NHL Central Scouting Bureau list of players eligible for this year’s draft.

"I'm looking forward to it," the 19-year-old Gostisbehere said. "It's a whole new experience. It'll be exciting if something happens."

Gostisbehere had an outstanding freshman season, collecting five goals and 17 assists in 41 games. He was named to the ECAC Hockey All-Rookie team, and was selected to the ECACH All-Tournament team.

Shayne Gostisbehere was part of a well-balanced Union College team that made their very first Frozen Four appearance this spring. The Margate, FLA native led the Dutchmen in freshmen scoring with 22 points (five goals, 17 assists) playing in all 41 games and earned a spot on the ECAC All-Rookie team. His plus-18 ranked tied for second on the team. While Gostisbehere was on the scouting radar throughout the season, it was his excellent post-season performance that significantly boosted his draft stock.

Gostisbehere is a smart, puck-moving defenseman who sees the ice remarkably well. But what sets him apart from many collegiate rookie defensemen is his ability to balance great offensive skills with a solid defensive game. Gostisbehere is smart in knowing when to jump into plays and his decision-making is very good. He moves exceedingly well with the puck and his passing skills are excellent. Gostisbehere also possesses a great stick and does a good job of taking away lanes. While Gostisbehere's one-on-one coverage is good, he'll need to continue to improve his gap control. Gostisbehere is a superb skater with good speed and agility. He possesses a very good shot and can get pucks to the net. Gostisbehere's greatest attributes, such as his skating will be further enhanced with continued physical development.

No idea who he is. Cool name though. A little smallish maybe.

Well my wife is a Union alum.

Sounds vaguely like a better skating Gus, right down to being an NCAA guy.

"Ghost" for a nickname is pretty cool.

I love it!! My home rink for HS hockey was at Union. I'm also close friends with the equipment manager.

As am I. He's a tad small and if you go by his pre-rank this is a huge jump.

Small players can play in the new nhl. Hes a puck moving defender which we dont have many in the system. He was the 4th ranked ncaa player and had the 2nd most points as a defender in the ncaa. Prob my favorite pick so far

They can definitely, it he was ranked somewhere around late 4th, 5th round wasn't he?? Same with the goalie we took....these are reaches, from lesser junior leagues....Flyers seem to be just looking for the diamond in the rough rather than safely building up the organization depth

I don't like it! Meaning the philosophy not necessarily this pick specifically

The Flyers picked up an absolute stud in Gostisbehere. I saw him play a handful of games this season and he will definitely play in the show. 160 pounds is small but he played this season as a natural freshman at Union so he will definitely bulk up. Although a natural freshman, he played with the poise of an all-american.

Additionally, he's been invited to the US World Junior Team camp and I can definitely see him making the team this winter.

All in all he was originally slated as a 5th rounder, but he had such a great post-season that he was talked about as a fringe 2nd round or a sure fire third rounder over the past month, so this was by no means a reach for Philly. If Philly hadn't taken him he would have been off the board within the next few picks. Great pick by Philly and this kid will arrive on your blue line (not the Phantoms) by 2014 or 2015.

BobbyClarkeFan16 06-23-2012 12:59 PM

If there was any draft year to take chances, this year was it. Fact is, by the time pick 45 came around, some of the good defensemen were already off the board. So, the Flyers took a gamble on the 4th ranked North American goaltender. Now, with this pick, they took someone who is at least two to three years away. From what I've seen, he's a very good defenseman. Yes, he's got offensive skills, but he's also incredibly smart defensively.

I like the fact that the Flyers are looking for athletes with skill. People are also forgetting that some of these kids (Gostisbehere and Stolarz) have been invited to the US National Team World Junior U-20 camp too. I say kudos to the Flyers for going off the "traditional draft board."

During the 90s and the early 2000s, the New Jersey Devils were notorious for that and they drafted a ton of great players as a result. Same with the Red Wings. Sometimes, you've got to break the mold and go in a different direction. I love it that the Flyers are taking risks.

Haute Couturier 06-23-2012 01:05 PM

Personally, this is my favorite pick. They took a kid who clearly has skill, but just needs time to fill out. He was a reach, but I'm okay with reaching for skill.

I would much rather the Flyers go for speed and skill than size and brawn. This is a good change from the previous philosophy.

Quote:

PITTSBURGH -- Shayne Gostisbehere was watching the NHL draft Saturday afternoon on television from his living room in Ft. Lauderdale.

“There was a slim chance I’d be going a little earlier than expected,” said the teenage defenseman from Union College, who the Flyers drafted Saturday in the third round.

“When I saw my name I jumped off the couch. Literally, I jumped off the couch. My family didn’t feel like making the trip [to Pittsburgh]. We stayed home.”

Gostisbehere, a 19-year-old puck-moving defenseman, will be a sophomore next season. Teammate Greg Coburn – younger brother of the Flyers’ Braydon – will be a junior next year at Union.
Quote:

“The kid came on the radar at mid-season and started to play better, our guys in the East happen to see him a lot,” said Chris Pryor, the Flyers director of hockey operations, who oversees the draft.

“He has a good head, good stick, and can make plays. He’s only a freshman and he’s in a good situation.”

His own self-evaluation? While he admits he’s a skating defenseman, he said three times, “I’m not a slouch on defense.”
