I've not used this wrapper but Shapefile does create only triplet of
Shapefile files (shp, shx and dbf).
The .prj file is just a text file with projection definition
encoded in ESRI-like WKT string.

If you need to manipulate projections, then I'd encourage you to try
GDAL/OGR (http://www.gdal.org). There is C# bindings provided.
