Shawn played professionally for 10 years, splitting time between the National Hockey League (NHL), American Hockey League (AHL), Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) and Swedish Hockey League (SHL). An Edmonton native, he was drafted in the first round of the 2000 Western Hockey League (WHL) Bantam Draft by the Regina Pats. After being traded to the Tri-City Americans of the WHL, he went on to have five impressive seasons. This led to representing Team Canada twice at the World Junior Championships, resulting in Silver and Gold Medals.
This success led to Shawn being selected in the first round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues. He went on to rack up 537 professional games, spending most of his time in the AHL with Iowa, Houston, Hamilton, Oklahoma and Lake Erie. Following a successful playing career, Shawn returned to Edmonton and transitioned into coaching. Formerly the Associate Coach with the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) Ooks, as well as an instructor at Vimy Ridge Academy, Shawn is currently the Head Coach of the OHA Edmonton Elite 15 team.
