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.

 

Talent Analysis

Shaw is a big winger who does not hesitate to use his frame to his advantage, but he is far from just a checking line winger. He is willing to absorb punishment at the top of the crease or engage in puck battles along the boards. A strong skater with a willingness to drive to the net, Shaw can also help out on the penalty kill.

 

Future

Shaw signed an entry-level contract with Florida at the end of his junior season. He will line up with the Rampage this fall, but he could become a NHL regular in the next two to three years.

After a year in which several prospects left the Panthers system, the summer brought new faces to Florida. Among them is the first overall pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, Aaron Ekblad, a towering, talented defenseman who could be just one of several prospects earning full-time NHL roster spots this fall.

The Florida Panthers currently have four players on their NHL roster who can still be considered prospects. Aleksander Barkov, Nick Bjugstad, Dylan Olsen, and Jimmy Hayes are all seeing regular shifts for Florida, and all have been effective at that level. There are also a handful of prospects at the AHL level who are either NHL-ready or not far off.

The Florida Panthers' system remains well stocked even after the graduation of Jonathan Huberdeau and Jacob Markstrom. The organization has incredible depth and skill at center and defense, and although the goaltending depth chart looks relatively weak, it remains a solid group with a couple of players performing well in the early part of the current season.

The summer started early for many of Florida's top prospects, after both the Panthers and their AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, failed to make the playoffs. Several of the team's brightest young stars, Jonathan Huberdeau, Drew Shore, Jacob Markstrom, and Alex Petrovic among them, missed out on postseason action. However, the Panthers were still represented in playoff action at many levels of play.

The 2012-13 season marked a pivotal point for numerous prospects in the Florida Panthers system. Seven different players (Jonathan Huberdeau, Drew Shore, Alex Petrovic, Quinton Howden, Nick Bjugstad, Michael Caruso, and Eric Selleck) made their NHL debuts this year. Others, including 2012 first-round pick Mike Matheson, launched their collegiate or professional careers. The players below have all gained recognition for their play, but given the breadth of talent in the system, each of these awards could have been handed out to several different players.
