  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Waived by Wild

    Shaw has yet to make his NHL debut, spending the last four seasons with AHL Iowa. He racked up eight goals and 22 points in 30 games last season. The 22-year-old forward should once again spend most of the season in the minors but could be recalled in case of injury.

    Shaw spent the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors, picking up eight goals and 22 points through 30 appearances. The 22-year-old forward will likely once again spend most, if not all of the upcoming campaign with AHL Iowa.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Heads to AHL

    The Wild reassigned Shaw to AHL Iowa on Thursday.

    Shaw supplied depth to the forward group at the beginning of the Wild's restart with a slew of players in the COVID-19 protocol. The 22-year-old will need to wait a bit longer to make his NHL debut, as he's expected to spend his time between the taxi squad and minors this season.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Called up to taxi squad

    Shaw was recalled from AHL Iowa to the taxi squad Monday.

    Since the Wild still have a few players in COVID-19 protocol, Shaw will add depth on their three-game road trip to California. The 22-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut. He'll need to be promoted from the taxi squad to play an NHL game.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Heads to AHL

    Shaw was assigned to AHL Iowa on Friday.

    Shaw didn't make his NHL debut during his five-day stint with the big club. The Wild have suspended team activities due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, but Shaw may be called back up once they resume play. Otherwise, the 22-year-old center will continue to develop in the minors, where he posted six points over 17 games last year.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Brought up to taxi squad

    Shaw was recalled to the taxi squad from AHL Iowa on Sunday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Shaw will join the team to add depth at forward. He can practice and travel with the team, but he'll need to be promoted from the taxi squad before making his NHL debut. The 5-foot-9 center has played 94 AHL games, posting 11 goals and 28 assists.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Demoted to AHL

    The Wild sent Shaw to AHL Iowa on Monday.

    A 2017 fourth-round pick of the Wild, Shaw failed to make the NHL roster out of training camp for the second straight season. A knee injury forced him to miss a good portion of the AHL season in 2019-20, but Shaw still earned six points over 17 games. Shaw is still 22 years old, so he'll likely need more games in the minors before he's ready for NHL action.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Healthy and joining AHL Iowa

    Shaw (knee) will suit up for AHL Iowa in its game against AHL San Jose on Friday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Shaw suffered a knee injury in last season's AHL playoffs, and it has kept him out for the first half of this campaign, as well. Now healthy, the 21-year-old will make his season debut in the minors. If Shaw plays well with Iowa, he could eventually make his way to the big club.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Will start season on IR

    Shaw (knee) will start the 2019-20 campaign on injured reserve, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Shaw is still recovering from offseason knee surgery. Once he's given the green light the 20-year-old pivot, who notched 33 points in 76 minor-league appearances last season, will head to AHL Iowa.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Back under knife

    Shaw underwent an additional procedure on his surgically repaired ACL in his right knee, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Shaw missed all but one game of the 2017-18 campaign after injuring his knee in a prospect tournament and now could be in doubt heading into 2019-20. After putting up 33 points in 76 games with AHL Iowa this season, the 20-year-old was certainly trending in the right direction. If he is able to suit up for training camp this fall, it could open the door for a potential call-up during the year.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Should be ticketed back to juniors

    Shaw is expected to start the 2018-19 campaign with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL.

    Shaw tore his ACL at the Traverse City Prospects Tournament last September and was limited to one game with AHL Iowa as part of the 2017-18 campaign. "It's been a tough road to recovery here," he said. "I think we're past the nine-month point, but it feels really good in skates and workouts and whatnot, so I'm pretty confident in how I'm feeling." The 5-foot-8, 180-pound center was selected by the Wild in the fourth round (97th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Shaw has recorded more points (163) than games played (161) in juniors and it's easy to get excited about his potential. However, due to his injury setback, it will probably be a few years before he is fully immersed in NHL play.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Pens entry-level deal with Minnesota

    Shaw (knee) signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Wild on Saturday.

    Three years is the maximum duration for an entry-level contract, so the Wild will be able to get a long look at the prospect they selected in the fourth round (97th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Lauded for his playmaking acumen, Shaw amassed 94 points (27 goals, 67 assists) in just 71 games for the WHL's Tigers in 2016-17, but he's rounding out his recovery from a torn ACL sustained in the Traverse City Prospect Tournament last September.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Begins skating

    Shaw has started skating after being cleared by doctors in his return from an ACL injury. "You start to see some steps, kind of, to move forward to play again when you get the skates back on," he told the Medicine Hat Chat News Today. "It actually felt better than i thought it would, so that's a positive."

    Minnesota's 2017 fourth-round draft pick suffered the injury in September. He's unlikely to play this season, but it looks like he's making progress as he aims to return for the 2018-19 campaign.
