Hayden Shaw Commits to North Dakota

The young defenseman is headed to Grand Forks

Waterloo(USHL) '96 born defenseman Hayden Shaw announced this evening via Twitter that he will play his college hockey at North Dakota:

Shaw played high school hockey at Woodbury High School prior to this season, when he opted to move on the USHL. Shaw is a junior in high school this year, so he will have at least another year of junior hockey before he can join North Dakota's squad.

Shaw is the son of Matt Shaw, who is now head coach/general manager of the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL, but served as an assistant coach at his alma mater of Colorado College, as well as NHL assistant coaching gigs with the Minnesota Wild, San Jose Sharks, and New Jersey Devils.

Hayden Shaw is a smaller, puck-moving defenseman, listed at (probably generous) 5'10" 180 lbs. As the son of a coach, Shaw is a very smart player that understands the game well and is responsible with the puck. He's also an exceptional skater. Through 24 games with the Blackhawks this year, Shaw has 6 goals and 11 assists, to go along with a +3 +/- rating.
