Shuster won the 2010 United States Olympic Curling Trials and represented the United States at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver. At the 2009 Curling World Championships in Moncton, Canada, Shuster and his team finished in fifth place. They finished the Round Robin portion in a tie for the playoffs, however they lost to Team Norway in the tiebreaker.
After Shuster missed several crucial last-rock shots in three of the United States' first four matches in the 2010 Winter Olympics, U.S. coaches took the unusual step of benching Shuster and replacing him with alternate Chris Plys. Plys threw third rocks as skip, with Jason Smith throwing fourth rocks. In their first match after Shuster's benching, the U.S. won their first match of the tournament when they stole a point from France in the 10th end. Shuster returned to the ice in the next match, throwing third rocks against Sweden, whom the U.S. defeated. Plys returned to replace lead John Benton against world champion David Murdoch and Great Britain, but a 4–2 loss dropped the Americans to 2–5, all but assuring they would not qualify for the medal round.
After skipping the 2010 Olympic team to a last place finish, Shuster joined the Craig Brown rink as his third. For the 2011 season, Shuster formed his own rink with Zach Jacobson, Jared Zezel, and John Landsteiner. He then replaced Jacobson with longtime teammate Jeff Isaacson at third in the 2012–13 season. Shuster won his second World Curling Tour event as skip at the 2012 St. Paul Cash Spiel, defeating Todd Birr in the final.
After back-to-back bronze medal finishes at the 2012 and 2013 United States Men's Curling Championships, Shuster and his team were selected to participate at the 2014 United States Olympic Curling Trials by the national High Performance Program committee. Shuster and his team finished first in the round robin, and played Pete Fenson in the three-game final round, winning after the third game. Shuster represented the United States at the qualifying event for the Olympics, and succeeded in securing the final spot at the Olympics for the United States. He represented the United States at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, marking his third consecutive appearance at the Olympics. However, Shuster's rink got off to a slow start and were unable to recover, finishing in ninth place with a 2–7 win-loss record.
Shuster is married to Sarah Shuster, and has a son. He is a stay-at-home dad.
