Your shrub is a boxwood and they are prone to winter damage. You could try covering it with burlap or a wire cage with some other sort of protection but there is no guarantee. You could also replace it with something hardier. Here is some more info about winter injury. https://extension.umn.edu/planting-and-growing-guides/protecting-trees-and-shrubs-winter
