Samuel Hamilton "Hamby" Shore (February 12, 1886 – October 14, 1918) was a Canadian professional hockey player who played several seasons for the Ottawa Senators, notably during the "Silver Seven" era when the club was champion from 1903 until 1906. Shore was a victim of the influenza epidemic of 1918–19, dying of influenza on October 14, 1918.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Shore joined the Ottawa Hockey Club in 1904 when the club was already the Stanley Cup champion. After one season, he played out west with the Winnipeg Winnipegs in 1905-06, before returning to Ottawa in 1906–07. He returned to Winnipeg to play professional, with the Maple Leafs and Strathconas. He played in the Maple Leafs' unsuccessful Stanley Cup challenge in 1908 against the Montreal Wanderers. He did not play the following season, 1908–09 due to illness. He returned to Ottawa, now a professional club, in the 1909–10 season, playing on another Stanley Cup winner. He would remain in the organization until October 1918, when he died of the Spanish flu epidemic. He was a member of a third Stanley Cup winner, in 1911.
