Chicago Blackhawks agree to terms with F Andrew Shaw

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with forward Andrew Shaw on a two-year contract extension through the 2015-16 season.

The 22-year-old Shaw had nine goals and six assists in 48 games last year, his first full season in the NHL. He added five goals and four assists as the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, and he is currently sixth on the team with 11 points — and 51 hits through 18 games.

The Belleville, Ontario, native was drafted in the fifth round (139th overall) in 2011.

Chicago announced the deal Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
