It's been a challenging road for 24-year-old Mason Shaw, who has already suffered four major knee injuries in his young career. With so many significant injuries in such a short amount of time, there a lot of questions arising about his durability and whether or not he's built for the pro level.

Shaw has suffered four separate ACL tears, the most recent of which was this past April. Now, with the youngster having been unable to locate any suitors at the NHL level this summer, he has opted to sign a deal outside of the NHL in hopes of keeping his pro hockey dream alive.
On Tuesday, the Iowa Wild, AHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, announced that they've agreed to terms on a one-year, one-way contract with Shaw, which will allow him to get back on the ice to try to prove that he can indeed stay healthy and be a productive player at the pro level.
Shaw, a native of Wainwright, Alberta, spent the majority of the 2022-23 season in the NHL with Minnesota, where he appeared in 59 games and put up 17 points (seven goals, ten assists). He scored his first goal in the National Hockey League on October 30th against the Chicago Blackhawks.
