Jets Re-Sign Shaw and SuessBy: Manitoba Moose Staff | Published: May 31st 2019
The Winnipeg Jets announced today they have agreed to terms with forwards Logan Shaw and C.J. Suess. Both forwards were signed to one-year, two-way contracts with an average annual value of $700,000 in the NHL.
Shaw, 26, was signed as a free agent by the Jets on Nov. 11/18 and split last season in the AHL between the Manitoba Moose and the San Diego Gulls where he totaled 51 points (29G, 22A) in 70 games. The Glace Bay, N.S. native’s 27 goals for the Moose led the club in 2018-19 and his 46 points were second. Shaw’s 14 power play goals tied him for fourth in the AHL last season, and his 13 extra-man tallies with Manitoba were the most by a Moose player since the 2006-07 season. The veteran forward has 31 points (12G, 19A) in 180 career NHL games for Florida, Anaheim, and Montreal in his career and has also skated in 12 playoff games.
Shaw was originally drafted by the Florida Panthers in the third round (76th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft.
Suess, 25, was drafted by the Jets in the fifth round (129th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft and just finished his first full season with the Manitoba Moose. The Forest Lake, MN native had 12 points (8G, 4A) in 26 games for the Moose in 2018-19 before suffering an upper body injury in mid-December that kept him out for the rest of the season. Suess made his debut for Manitoba in 2017-18 when he had two points (1G, 1A) in six games and added another assist in three playoff tilts.
