- Edmonton Oilers 2000 - present
Shawn Horcoff is a Canadian center on the Edmonton Oilers.
Horcoff was drafted by Edmonton in 1998, after playing college hockey at Michigan State University. Horcoff joined the Oilers in 2000, and was a regular participant on the team from the first season he played for them. Before the lockout in 2004-05, Horcoff was a more defensive minded player, but he spent the season with Mora IK of the Swedish Elitserien, where he developed into one of the offensive leaders of today’s Edmonton Oilers. After the lockout, Horcoff posted his career best season with 22 goals and 73 points, leading the Oilers to the Stanley Cup Finals. He has posted 50 points in both of his last two seasons as well.
Horcoff played for Team Canada at the 2003, 2004 and 2005 World Championships, winning two gold medals and one silver in 2005.
