Justin Shugg (born December 24, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for Augsburger Panther in Germany.

Shugg was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the fourth round (105th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Career Edit

Shugg played four seasons (2007-2011) of major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) where he scored 101 goals and 115 assists for 216 points and registered 146 penalty minutes in 262 games played.

On June 17, 2011, the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL) signed Shugg to a three-year entry-level contract[1] and sent him to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL). In 2014-15, he saw the ice in three NHL contests for the Hurricanes.

At the conclusion of the 2015-16 season and not offered a new contract with the Hurricanes, Shugg as a free agent left North America and accepted an initial try-out contract with Latvian club, Dinamo Riga of the KHL on July 27, 2016.[2] After 33 KHL contests, including two goals and nine assists, he parted company with Dinamo on December 13, 2016.[3] Some days later, he inked a deal with Augsburger Panther of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) in Germany for the remainder of the 2016-17 season.[4]
