OTTAWA, ON – Atlético Ottawa has today confirmed that striker Malcolm Shaw has left the club ahead of the 2024 Canadian Premier League (CPL) season, after four seasons in the nation’s capital.

Shaw was the last squad member to have been signed in Ottrawa’s inaugural CPL season, the 2020 Island Games, and was a stand-out performer during the first year at TD Place in 2021. The 28-year-old striker departs the club having scored 19 goals and provided 5 assists in 83 appearances (all competitions). In 2022, Shaw made history by scoring Ottawa’s first CPL playoff goal in front of a raucous crowd of almost 10,000 people, in the semi-final against Pacific FC.

The Pickering native, who earned his first international cap for Trinidad and Tobago last season, is currently second in Ottawa’s all-time appearance holders (behind recently departed Miguel Acosta) and goal scorers (behind star midfielder Ollie Bassett).

Atlético Ottawa would like to thank Shaw for his commitment and professionalism during his time in the nation’s capital and wish him all the best in his next move.
