Andrew Shaw sat out Tuesday's practice because of a neck injury.

Shaw missed Game 6 on Saturday as a result. He'll have the summer to recover now, but concussions are unpredictable. It's entirely possible that he'll be symptom free in the near future and this won't even end up impacting his summer preparations, but there's also a chance that this will even linger into the 2017-18 campaign.
