Fantasy Summary

Shen has decent offensive upside and could slot into a top-nine if he ever makes the transition to North America


Observations

Click to Expand

August 2021 – Shen was placed on unconditional waivers earlier this season for the purpose of a mutual contract termination. He never truly found his footing in the AHL, and will now likely return to the KHL to continue his playing career. Chris Mazza

February 2021 – Shen has begun his second AHL campaign centering Providence’s fourth line. After underwhelming production in his first year in North America, the former seventh-round pick will find it equally hard to post meaningful numbers in his depth role. The Bruins have good depth both in Boston and Providence, which could work to restrict Shen’s opportunities. Hopefully, NHL call-ups help to clear a path for him as the season continues. Chris Mazza

August 2020 – Playing 35 AHL games in his first pro season in North America, Shen managed a modest four goals and nine points. Providence had a deep forward group, which meant limited opportunities in a scoring role for the young Russian. The experience gained still makes this a successful year for Shen. Look for increased production in his second AHL campaign. Chris Mazza

September 2019 – After splitting time with three different club teams last year, Shen will look to establish his NHL upside while playing for Providence in 2019-2020. He has produced effectively as a prospect in Russia, but playing consistently for one team this season should go a long way in his development as a pro. While his role may be limited at first, Shen should be given every opportunity to earn more playing time as he progresses in his first AHL campaign. Chris Mazza

December 2018 – Shen has been having a miserable season statistically but coach Bragin has still invited him to the World Junior Championship camp for Russia. Despite the meager point totals for Shen this year he’s still a good offensive prospect. His MHL (Russian equivalent to CHL) point total from his last two seasons is excellent but he has struggled, as most young Russian players do, to find playing time with his KHL team, and this has likely hurt his general production at the junior level as well. If he can crack Russia’s WJC roster it may help turn his otherwise disappointing season around. Stuart Hall
