ECHL: Reading Royals: Shane Sellar Re-Signs For Third Full Professional Season

On July 11th, 2024, Reading Royals announced that Forward Shane Sellar has re-signed for his third full professional season. Sellar is a mainstay and fan favorite in Reading the last two seasons. This past season, Sellar has played in 63 games and tallied 15 goals with 16 assists.

Hailing from Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Sellar came to Reading from RPI, and also having played four years with Dartmouth College. With Dartmouth, Sellar played in 94 games and tallied 16 goals with 24 assists. His final year, an injury derailed his season and he had to sit out. During Sellar’s time with RPI, he dressed for 39 games and notched seven goals with five assists.

“I got hurt my senior year at Dartmouth and tore my meniscus, MCL, and LCL. Ivy league does not allow fifth year players in ice hockey. You have to get a huge waiver and it takes months. I applied for it and got denied and they asked for further information. At that point, I said I’m better off graduate transferring and getting a degree somewhere else. In the Ivy League, you also can’t graduate if you come back for a fifth year, you have to keep doing your undergraduate coursework. I didn’t have enough classes left to really push it off so I decided to go elsewhere.”

– Sellar speaking with Inside The Rink about the injury sustained in his senior year

Sellar landed in Reading after his time with RPI and has played in 116 games wearing the Royals uniform. In the 2022-2023 season, Sellar made 11 playoff appearances in the Kelly Cup Playoffs. He tallied one goal with two assists.

“I am really excited to be back in Reading for a third season, I can’t wait to be back playing in front of the best fans in the ECHL and to see them all on October 26th for our home opener.”
