It's been a busy off-season for Andrew Shaw.
He was traded to the Montreal Canadiens, signed to a six-year, $23.4 million contract and earlier this month he announced his engagement to Chaunette Boulerice on Twitter. "We're both excited to move into it and get settled in," said Shaw, who bought a house in Montreal. "It's been pretty exciting. A lot of big changes in my life for the better. I'm excited for it. ... I'm close to home, playing for an Original Six, the Montreal Canadiens. I'm excited for it." He is expected to add some toughness and leadership to the Canadiens, but he isn't likely to bring much to the table offensively. Aug 14 - 11:03 AM

According to Andrew Shaw's agent, Pat Brisson, his client never asked for $4.5 million per season.

Last week, a report surfaced in the Chicago Sun-Times saying that Shaw was asking the Hawks for $4.5 million annually, but Brisson insists that isn't true. "The Blackhawks did everything they could to sign ‘Shawzsy,’" Brisson said. "They just don’t have the cap space. Contrary to reports, we didn’t ask for $4.5 million." Scott Powers of the Athletic says Shaw was asking for $3.2 million on a seven or eight year contract. That's a lot of term for a player like Shaw, but it's a long way away from $4.5 million. Shaw ended up signing a six-year deal worth $3.9 million per season.

Andrew Shaw has reached an agreement on a six-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Reports suggest the 24-year-old forward will be paid an average of $3.9-million a season. He could have become a restricted free agent Friday. "As I mentioned last Friday following Andrew's acquisition (in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks), we are adding a solid character player to our team, a reliable player who plays with grit and a two-time Stanley Cup champion. . .over the past five seasons," Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin said. "Andrew will add more leadership to our team. I had the opportunity to discuss with him over the past few days, and I sense his determination and excitement in joining the Canadiens' organization for many years to come."

Andrew Shaw is looking forward to joining the Montreal Canadiens this season.

Shaw and Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin know each other pretty well, as Bergevin was the assistant general manager in Chicago before taking the job in Montreal. "(Bergevin) likes the rat in me, the work ethic," Shaw said on Saturday via conference call. "He enjoys watching me play and dealing with him on my first contract was exciting for me as well. I owe him a lot." When asked about playing with another scrappy player like Brendan Gallagher, here's what Shaw had to say: "Me and Gallagher, we have had some fun battles. Now I’m excited to be on his side to annoy people together, I guess." Shaw is a restricted free agent this off-season. The two sides should be announcing an agreement in the near future.

Montreal has been talking contract with Andrew Shaw and a new deal may be reached soon.

TSN's Darren Dreger said a five to seven year extension could be agreed to in the "days ahead." Shaw was acquired at the 2016 NHL Draft by the Canadiens in exchange for the 39th and 45th overall picks. He is currently a restricted free agent.

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin is thrilled to have Andrew Shaw on board.

Shaw was acquired in a trade from the Blackhawks for two draft picks just as Friday's entry draft got under way. "Andrew Shaw has played five seasons in the NHL and he’s won two Stanley Cups. We talked a lot about helping out our dressing room with character guys, and that’s one of the reasons why it was important to go out and get a player of his caliber. He’s got many good attributes on the ice and off it," said Bergevin. "He knows what it takes to win. He’s scored big goals during the playoffs, and he reminds me a little bit of Brendan Gallagher. He takes guys into battle with him. I feel like our fans will appreciate him." Shaw will certainly play in the Habs' top nine and will get plenty of power-play ice time.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Andrew Shaw for the 39th and 45th overall picks in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Shaw is eligible to become a restricted free agent on July 1. There was a time when it looked like Chicago would be able to re-sign him given that the Blackhawks freed some cap space by dealing Bryan Bickell to Carolina. However, it came out Friday afternoon that Shaw is reportedly seeking an average annual salary of $4.5 million, which likely priced Chicago out. He had 14 goals and 34 points in 78 games in 2015-16.

Andrew Shaw is reportedly looking for a contract that will pay him at least $4.5 million annually.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman recently seemed upbeat about the contract negotiations with Shaw, but if that's really the salary that he's looking for then it wouldn't be surprising to see Chicago trade him. Shaw, who is set to become a restricted free agent, had 14 goals and 34 points in 78 games last season.

"There are a lot of things we’re working through and that’s certainly one of them." Shaw had 14 goals and 34 points in 78 games last season. He's eligible to become a restricted free agent in July.

Andrew Shaw is expected to be re-signed by Chicago, according to a source.

Andrew Shaw's agent, Pat Brisson, said there have been preliminary discussions about a new contract with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Andrew Shaw has been named the winner of the Blackhawks' unsung hero award by the fans.

"It's not only his offense that has made Shaw a fan favorite," said the narrator in the video tribute for Shawk's award. "He'll battle in the corner for a loose puck and he's not afraid to throw around his 5-11, 185-pound frame." Shaw beat out Artem Anisimov, Scott Darling and Trevor van Riemsdyk for the honor.

Andrew Shaw will be a restricted free agent in the off-season.

Coach Joel Quenneville called Shaw "irreplaceable" and Shaw wants to be back too, but GM Stan Bowman has a tricky situation to navigate when it comes to the team's salary cap. "I don't have an answer for you right now," Bowman said. "We certainly like what Andrew brings to the table. There are just some things that have yet to be determined in terms of what's the salary cap going to be. We'll get that number over the next two months and once we get that, we'll make it work and put a team together that fits and is competitive. Certainly, we'd like to try and do what we can to bring him here." Shaw has won two Stanley Cups with the Blackhawks and he generated 34 points in 78 games this past campaign.

Andrew Shaw scored his fourth goal of the postseason Monday night but he and the Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated from playoff contention as they were edged 3-2 by the Blues in Game 7 of their first-round series in St. Louis.

The Blackhawks were ousted in the first round for the first time since the Coyotes defeated them in 2012. The Hawks are the first defending Stanley Cup champions to lose in the first round since the Boston Bruins were eliminated in 2012. Marian Hossa was Chicago's other goal scorer Monday. It was his third goal of the postseason. Hossa did his best to keep the Hawks alive, driving five shots on St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott.
