Shaw formerly coached the Moose Jaw Canucks, St. Catharines Black Hawks, and Edmonton Oil Kings junior teams. He took the Hawks from last place to first place in the Ontario Hockey Association during his first season. A fiery competitor, Shaw was suspended during the 1971-72 season because of an altercation with a fan.
Shaw died in 1993, aged 62, of lymphoma. At the time of his death he had been the owner of the Portland Winterhawks. Following the revelation of the Graham James sexual abuse scandal, Shaw was posthumously accused by several of his former junior players of having made unwanted sexual advances.
On March 6, 2010, Shaw was posthumously inducted into the inaugural class of the Portland Winterhawks' Hall of Fame. The honour was accepted by his nephew, former Winterhawks player Brian "Bunny" Shaw
