GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Saturday re-signed forward Dominik Shine to a one-year contract for the 2020-21 season.

Skating in his third full professional season in 2019-20, the 27-year-old Shine has tallied 14 points (4-10—14) – which is two shy of equaling his career best he set as a rookie – in 50 games for Grand Rapids while establishing career highs with 10 assists and 57 penalty minutes.

Shine, a Detroit native, made his pro debut with the Griffins on March 19, 2017 at Milwaukee and has logged 188 regular season games with the Griffins, netting 44 points (18-26—44) and 171 PIM. He shows two points (1-1—2) and four PIM in 10 Calder Cup Playoff appearances.

Prior to turning pro, Shine spent four seasons (2013-17) at Northern Michigan University (WCHA), where he notched 97 points (48-49—97) and 185 PIM in 131 games and served as a two-time alternate captain. During his senior year in 2016-17, Shine paced the conference with 20 goals in 33 contests en route to his second consecutive 30-point season and was named to the All-WCHA Third Team.

Shine also played four seasons for the USHL’s Lincoln Stars from 2009-13 and served as captain during his final two years. He totaled 134 career points (64-70—134) and 503 PIM in 188 regular season contests while chipping in five points (2-3—5) and 22 PIM in 15 postseason appearances.
