Florida signed depth forward Logan Shaw to a one-year, two-way deal on Wednesday, the club announced.
Shaw, 23, had reportedly inked his deal last week, per Cap Friendly. The Panthers didn’t release financial details, but it’s believed to be worth $660,000 at the NHL level.
Shaw played a pretty useful role for the Panthers last year, scoring seven points in 53 games. He also appeared in three games during the club’s opening-round playoff loss to the Islanders.
A rookie last season, Shaw has spent considerable time in the AHL, where he’s performed well. He was nearly a point-per-game producer in Portland last season (14 points in 19 games) and given his good size — 6-foot-3, 202 pounds — transitioned well to the NHL level.
The next step for Shaw is to try and make the Florida roster full-time. But that won’t be easy, given the Panthers brought in some additional depth forwards via free agency, notably Colton Sceviour and Jonathan Marchessault.
