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.
2014-15: In his second full season as a pro, Shaw established himself as a solid two-way player with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL. He increased his point total from eight to 25 from the year prior and finished 11th on the team in scoring despite primarily playing in a bottom-six role. His 13 goals was also enough to tie him for fourth on the team. He was held pointless in two playoff games.
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.
Shaw is entering the final year of his entry-level deal in 2015-16 and will skate for Florida’s new AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates. His ability to play a two-way brand of hockey should at least maintain his status as an effective pro, but an increase in offensive output – and opportunity – this season could go a long way in determining his ability to play in the NHL.
