Freshman Austin Shaw Gets First Appearance At Baker

Austin Shaw and the team listen during a break

PRINCETON, N.J. – The first shot Austin Shaw faced in his home debut was a goal. Or at least that’s what the officials thought, signaling a goal after a National Team Development Program player poked the puck at the corner of the net.

After the call, the officials left the ice to watch the replay.

“It’s never fun to go in cold, but [I] had to go in there,” Shaw said. “Going in and then having a 2-on-1 and then a backdoor [goal] and then having it reviewed was a little nerve-wracking.

“But I saw it hit the post and I didn’t think it went in, so I was kind of surprised that they announced it as a goal.”
