SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Edmonton Oilers blue-liner Justin Schultz won the Eddie Shore Award on Wednesday as the American Hockey League's defenceman of the year.

He is the first rookie in the award's 55-year history to earn the honour.

The Kelowna, B.C., native began the season with Oklahoma City but left the AHL affiliate on Jan. 5 to join the Oilers. In 34 games with the Barons, Schultz had 18 goals and 30 assists.

Schultz has continued his solid play with the Oilers. He leads Edmonton defencemen with 21 points (6-15) in 42 games this season.
