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. 

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.

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 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.

The Florida Panthers are one of the feel-good stories of the 2015-16 NHL season. The team grabbed the Atlantic division lead at the beginning of February and had a 12-game winning streak in January. Understandably, soon-to-be 44-year-old Jaromir Jagr has been garnering most of the attention, along with Roberto Luongo, who has been having a renaissance year between the pipes. But it’s the organization’s strong foundation of young players which has led to a lot of the team’s success. Read more»

The Florida Panthers AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, finished the 2014-15 season with a 45-23-7-1 record, which was good enough for first place in the West Division. However, they were swept in the first round of the playoffs. It was a team that relied heavily on veterans like Bobby Butler, Mark Mancari, Shane O’Brien and Brett Olson, while prospects Connor Brickley and Rocco Grimaldi made swift progression throughout the season.

The Florida Panthers are defense and center-heavy in terms of prospects, and this season will provide those players a chance to vault themselves ahead on the depth chart. The organization’s prospects are spread fairly evenly across all four levels—pro, junior, amateur and overseas—with intriguing prospects at each. Read more»

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»
