Shayne Gostisbehere was born on April 20, 1993 in Pembroke Pines, Florida. He starred in the Florida Junior Panthers program before attending South Kent School in Connecticut in 2009-10.

Gostisbehere played his collegiate hockey at Union College of the NCAA, where he was named All-Conference First Team in 2014 and led the club to the national title. Shayne took his game to another level in the championship game. He recorded a goal and two assists to go along with a plus-7 rating in the 7-4 defeat of the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

Drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Gostisbehere, was expected to join the club’s AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, for the 2014-15 season, but a knee injury limited him to just five AHL games and a pair of NHL contests.

Gostisbehere would start the 2015-16 at the American League level, but his strong play would soon earn him a spot with the Flyers. He would immediately show that he belonged in the NHL, recording his first assist, in his first game of the season. Gostisbehere would go on to set a new record for a rookie defenceman, recording a point in 15 straight games. He also showed a knack for the big moment, becoming the first rookie in history to score four overtime goals in a single season.

Though he appeared in just 64 games, Gostisbehere’s 46 points were more than any other first-year defender. He was named to the NHL All Rookie Team and finished in second place in Calder Trophy voting.

On the international stage, Gostisbehere has represented the United States during a Gold Medal performance at the 2013 World Junior Championship as well as at the 2016 World Championship.
