Q: Who Is Shay Stephenson?

A: He's the newest King.

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms on a multi-year entry-level contract with forward Shay Stephenson, Kings Senior Vice President/General Manager Dave Taylor announced today. Per club policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.

Stephenson, 21, this past season collected 26 points (13-13=26) and 104 penalty minutes in 44 games with the Sundsvall Bobcats (SWE1), members of Sweden’s First Division. The 6-4, 200-pound native of Outlook, Saskathewan, selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the seventh-round (198th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft and by the Edmonton Oilers in the ninth-round (278th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, also played four seasons (2001-04) with the Red Deer Rebels (WHL) before joining Sundsvall last year.

No idea.
I can't find him at www.eurohocke.net
HockeyDB has his career stats (updated through 2003-04 season)

link

I don't see it as a good sign the fact this kid has been drafted twice. My guess is that there's a one-way ticket for Reading waiting for him.

I have no idea who Shay Stephenson is. I think the Kings should package him with Cammalleri and trade them for the trade rumor player de jour....

Their average height is about 6' so this would make it a much more attractive deal to teams that might be worried about team size...

He isn't a signing for the Kings.

Think Manchester ( hopefully not ) or Reading. There are other rosters in the organization to fill out.

Living here in Red Deer I have seen him play, and he does not really stand out as anything special, he has size and strength which can cause chaos infront of the net. his skills are not incredible, but he does have a hard shot and good work ethic. I guess managment saw something special in him, hopefully he can continue his progress in Manchester or Reading.

He is listed at Eurohockey.

(He didn´t play center in Sundsvall.)

Shay was supposed to play with the Nybro Vikings in the same swedish league as last year, but who can blame him for pursuing his dream? ECHL next!

Shay Stephenson is the older brother of Coyotes prospect, Logan Stephenson (WHL-Tri-City Americans). He played junior in Red Deer. After that, he went onto Sweden. I'm sure he'll be in San Jose next month.

Shay grew up a block from me.

His dad, Bob, played in the NHL and WHA (Toronto and Hartford, respectively) in the 1970s.

He holds the WHL record for most playoff games played. He was much more effective come playoff time in the WHL than during the regular season.

He's big, can skate well, can take punishment, is aggressive, but is not much of a liability for the penalty box.

He has bad hockey hair.

It's a 3 year deal. Shay's been told he'll be going to Manchester to start the year. Whether he sticks there is another question.

His younger bro, Logan (currently at WJC tryouts), will also play in the San Jose rookie tourney for Phoenix's squad, so the family is quite excited about the event.

Are you sure it isn't a typo? Maybe it is Shayne Stevenson former Bruin, Lightning, Komet, Wildcat, Blizzard, Lumber King, Smoke, Prairie Dog (okay, I made that one up), Border Cat, Outlaw, Eagle center who also was a major roller hockey player for the Port Huron North Americans and the Toronto Torpedoes.

It will be fun to see it if they square off.
