Andrew Shaw's future as a musician got a serious boost Thursday.
The Montreal Canadiens forward received private guitar lessons from country music star Keith Urban after practice in Brossard, Quebec.
Urban was in the Montreal area to promote his Ripcord Tour and announce its stop at Bell Centre, the home of the Canadiens, on Aug 12.
Shaw's guitar lesson was a repayment of sorts. He and Urban were on the ice together earlier post-practice to help the Australian rocker's puck-shooting.
