Minnesota Wild Forward Out for the Season After 4th ACL Tear

Minnesota Wild forward Mason Shaw can't catch a break. He's done for the remainder of the 2022-23 season after tearing his ACL. The crazy part being it's Shaw's fourth time tearing one of his ACL's and he's only 24 years old.

The team made the announcement on Monday, as Shaw suffered the latest injury last weekend against the Vegas Golden Knights. He was originally a fourth-round selection of the Wild back at the 2017 NHL Draft.

So far this season, Shaw has recorded 17 points, including seven goals in 59 games. The checking forward uses his work ethic to grind teams down and has been doing so from the team's fourth line for the majority of the season.

Shaw hopes to bounce back in a major way next season, after this is a terrible way to end what was his first 'full' season with the Wild and playing a legit role with the team. Minnesota will carry on into the Stanley Cup Playoffs without Shaw as the team clinched their spot early this week.
