History

2007-08: Logan Shaw was chosen in the first round, 12th overall, of the 2008 QMJHL Entry Draft by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

2008-09: In his QMJHL rookie season, Shaw played in 49 games for the Screaming Eagles. He scored 5 goals and added 3 assists for 8 points. Shaw played for Team Atlantic at the 2009 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, picking up 2 assists in 5 games.

2009-10: In 67 games for the Screaming Eagles, Shaw scored 9 goals and added 15 assists for 24 points. Shaw registered no points in 5 playoff games.

2010-11: In 68 games for the Screaming Eagles, Shaw scored 26 goals and added 20 assists for 46 points. Shaw picked up 1 assist in 4 playoff games.

2011-12: Shaw returned to Cape Breton for his fourth junior season and skated in 37 games with the Screaming Eagles before being obtained by Quebec in a trade deadline deal. In 60 games between the two teams he scored 20 goals with 21 assists and was minus-23 with 46 penalty minutes. Eight of his 20 goals came on the power play. Quebec finished third in the East Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Shaw scored 6 goals (five on the power play) with 5 assists and was plus-two with 12 penalty minutes in 11 playoff games. He signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Panthers in May, 2012.

2012-13: Shaw returned to Quebec for an overage season with the Remparts. He was the team’s second-leading scorer behind Adam Erne (Tampa Bay), finishing with 26 goals and 42 assists in 67 games, and was a team-best +30 with 37 penalty minutes. The Remparts finished third in the East Division and reached the second round in the QMJHL playoffs. Shaw scored 3 goals with 5 assists in 11 playoff games and was -4 with 8 penalty minutes. Shaw signed a three-year entry-level contract with Florida in April 2013. 

2013-14: Shaw appeared in 46 games with Florida AHL affiliate San Antonio in his first pro season; splitting the year between the Rampage and the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones. He scored 1 goal with 7 assists and was -9 with 24 penalty minutes with San Antonio, which missed the playoffs after finishing last in the West Division. Shaw spent two months with Cincinnati after being demoted to the Cyclones after being sent down in November and re-joined the club for it’s playoff run to the Kelly Cup finals. In 20 regular season ECHL games he scored 8 goals with 10 assists and was +5 with 8 penalty minutes. Shaw scored 5 goals with 1 assist and was -5 with 4 penalty minutes in 24 playoff games. The Cyclones lost to Western Conference champion Alaska in six games in the finals. 

Talent Analysis

Shaw is a big winger who does not hesitate to use his frame to his advantage but is more than a checking line winger. He is willing to absorb punishment at the top of the crease or engage in puck battles along the boards and is a strong skater with a willingness to drive to the net, Shaw can also help out on the penalty kill. Steadily adapting to the pace and higher skill level of pro hockey, he has shown flashes of the playmaking ability he displayed in junior hockey and is scoring more consistently in his second AHL season.

Future

Shaw attended training camp with Florida before being assigned to AHL affiliate San Antonio at the start of the 2014-15 season. Now in his second pro season with the Rampage, he has stepped into a full-time role and is contributing on both ends on a consistent basis. While he is not likely to put up the offensive numbers he did with the high-flying Remparts in junior hockey, he could become an NHL regular in the next two to three years.

The Florida Panthers have made the playoffs just twice in the last 16 years. In an effort to make the postseason this year, the Panthers added veterans Dany Heatley and Jaromir Jagr at the trade deadline. But if the Panthers are going to become a playoff contender on an annual basis, it is the youngsters coming up through their system that need to make a difference in the coming years. Read more»
