Shankar, 20, has played 189 games with North Bay and Niagara over four seasons, along with 11 playoff games. He posted career highs in goals (4), assists (24), points (28) and penalty minutes (120) with the Battalion in 2016-17 and was traded to the IceDogs back on August 24th.

“Zach brings experience to our blue line,” Rychel said. “He is a character kid who has demonstrated (in North Bay and Niagara) the ability to lead and the willingness to help guide younger players. He adds a lot of intangibles to our club.”

Shankar is set to arrive in Windsor in time to make the Eastern Ontario trip with the team on Wednesday.
