Jason Shaver
Play-By-Play Announcer


Jason Shaver has completed nine seasons as the voice of the Wolves after being named the team’s play-by-play announcer in August 2008. Prior to joining the organization, the 45-year-old Shaver served as the director of broadcasting for the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros during the 2007-08 season and worked as the director of corporate sales and broadcasting for the AHL’s Iowa Stars during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons.

The Apple Valley. Minn., native is the third generation of hockey broadcasters in his family. His father, Wally Shaver, has been the voice of the University of Minnesota hockey team since 2001 while his grandfather, Al Shaver, a 1993 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, was the radio voice of the Minnesota North Stars for 26 seasons.

Prior to his AHL career, Shaver spent two seasons as the play-by-play announcer for the ECHL’s Texas Wildcatters. The former college hockey player began his broadcasting career with stints as the radio announcer for the United States Hockey League’s Waterloo Black Hawks and Northwoods Baseball League’s Waterloo Bucks.

Shaver and his wife, Karin, reside in Chicago.
