Extension For Shaw

Chicago | by Bayshore News Staff  

Former Attack forward rewarded by Blackhawks with new NHL deal.

The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with former Owen Sound Attack forward Andrew Shaw on a two-year contract extension

Shaw, who has 11 points on the season,  had 9 goals in 48 games in his rookie season last year.

The highlight for the 22 year old Belleville native was winning the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks.

From an individual standpoint, Shaw had a big contribution to the Championship, scoring the triple overtime winner against Boston in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

In 2010, Shaw was acquired by the Attack from the Niagara IceDogs and was an integral part of the OHL Championship team in Owen Sound.

In his lone season with the Attack, Shaw scored 22 times as Owen Sound won the Western Conference title.

In the 2011 post season,Shaw scored 10 times as the Attack went on to win their first ever Robertson Cup Championship.

Ironically, Shaw missed the final two games of the Championship series with Mississauga as he was suspended.

Once the suspension was served, Shaw went on to have a terrific Memorial Cup tournament for Owen Sound, leading the tournament with 7 points in 4 games.
