NEW YORK -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw has been suspended for three games for charging Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith during Game 2 of the teams' Western Conference Quarterfinal playoff series Saturday night in Phoenix, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 7:11 of the second period. Shaw was assessed a major penalty for charging and game misconduct.
I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
