Anaheim’s seen enough of Logan Shaw to keep him around for another season.
Shaw, acquired via trade from Florida in November, has agreed to a one-year, one-way extension worth $650,000, the club announced on Monday. The deal comes after Shaw appeared in 43 games for the Ducks, scoring five points while averaging just under 10 minutes a night.
The 24-year-old’s work on the penalty kill has drawn good reviews this season. And given Anaheim has the NHL’s fourth-best PK unit, it’s understandable why he’s earned a regular lineup spot under head coach Randy Carlyle.
“I take a lot of pride in that,” Shaw said, per the O.C. Register. “For me, that’s my role. I play sound defensively. I take a lot of pride in the penalty kill. Special teams, it’s a privilege to play on. You never take it for granted.
“It means a lot to get out there and help. It helps win games. And that’s my contribution.”
