Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Shawn Chambers
Shawn Chambers was selected by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1987 NHL Supplemental Draft. He played junior hockey in Michigan with Detroit Compuware before enrolling at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, where he played two years of hockey.

Chambers left Alaska-Fairbanks during the 1986-87 season and joined the WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds for the remainder of the season. Following a brief stay in the IHL with the Fort Wayne Komets at the end of the 1986-87 season, Chambers played in 19 games with the North Stars in 1987-88, scoring a goal and eight points while spending some time with the team's IHL affiliate Kalamazoo. Chambers stayed with the North Stars through the 1990-91 season.

After playing two games with the Washington Capitals in 1991-92, Chambers joined the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992-93, playing 55 games, and scoring 39 points. He remained with the Lightning until being traded to the New Jersey Devils midway through the shortened 1994-95 season. He also suited up for 20 playoff games as the Devils won their first-ever Stanley Cup, bouncing the Detroit Red Wings in four-straight games. Chambers played another two years with the Devils before joining the Dallas Stars in 1997-98.

In 1998-99, the Stars won the President's Trophy for earning the most points during the regular season. They followed their successful season in the playoff run, beating the Buffalo Sabres in the Stanley Cup finals, earning Chambers his second Cup ring. Following the Stars Cup win in 1999, Chambers decided to call it a career after playing only four games during the 1999-2000 season.
