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 want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
