Coach Joel Quenneville said it was "inevitable" that Andrew Shaw would get playing time with Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad again.
It's unclear if he said that before or after the Blackhawks signed Brad Richards, who is expected to occupy that spot at the beginning of the 2014-15 campaign. Shaw played well in that role for parts of last season and during the playoffs. If Richards doesn't work out then Shaw's fantasy value will go up dramatically, but for now you can pencil him in as Chicago's third-line center. Aug 4 - 4:24 PM

Andrew Shaw is hoping that he can earn a bigger role with the Blackhawks.

"I love being part of the bench and keep working to get better at it," Shaw said. "I'm the kind of guy who, once I get somewhere, it's not enough. I want more." Shaw logged an average of 15:41 minutes per contest in 2013-14. He's tentatively projected to serve as the team's third-line center due to the signing of Brad Richards.

Andrew Shaw will spend some of the summer rehabbing a right knee injury.

Shaw was sidelined for about three weeks due to the injury before he returned on May 24. "Obviously it was painful but at a time like that, you feel like the team needs you and you want to be a part of it," Shaw said. "So you push through it." He's expected to be fine for the start of training camp.

Andrew Shaw is apparently "fine" after his right leg appeared to buckle late in the third period of Game 5.

"Tough guy," coach Joel Quenneville said. "Came back and was real good for us all game." He was back in for overtime and will be ready to play in Game 6 on Friday night. Shaw skated between Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad for most of Wednesday's contest.

Andrew Shaw skated between Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad for the majority of Game 5.

The trio played a significant role in getting Chicago back into their series with the Los Angeles Kings. Shaw earned two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 double overtime win, while Kane collected four helpers and Saad posted a goal and three points. "They were excellent, outstanding," coach Joel Quenneville said. "They brought speed of the rush; play recognition, finish, support. I thought they all had huge games. That might have been a discovery."
May 29 - 9:45 AM

Andrew Shaw is slated to start between Brandon Saad and Kris Versteeg when he returns to the lineup on Saturday night.

His return appears as though it will bump Peter Regin into the press box. "We're happy to have Shaw back," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He's been there mostly all year, so that's where it's at." Shaw feels he could've played three games ago, but the Blackhawks were patient with his recovery and the extra time off could be beneficial.

Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith is expecting his team to get a boost from the return of Andrew Shaw.

Shaw is projected to center the third line in Game 3 after missing roughly three weeks. "We've missed his presence in the lineup," Keith said. "He's a good guy to have on the team, be it on the ice providing that energy or in the locker room. We look forward to having him back. He's a versatile player when it comes to what he provides on the ice, be it in front of the net, going to the hard areas or playing different positions. He's a big part of our team." Shaw had two goals and four points in seven playoff games before he was hurt.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville expects Andrew Shaw to return from his lower-body injury in Game 3.

The Blackhawks decided to keep him out of the lineup for a seventh straight game on Wednesday night even though he felt ready to return. The extra days to prepare and more practice time should prove to be beneficial for the gritty forward. However, he still may need a few shifts before he gets comfortable again.
May 22 - 2:30 PM

Andrew Shaw (lower body) wanted to return Wednesday, but he understands the logic in staying out of the lineup until Game 3 on Saturday.

"Those three extra days of rest will be huge for me," Shaw said. "We're thinking ahead, thinking of the long run." Chicago has a 1-0 series lead against Los Angeles. When Shaw does return, he will do a lot to solidify Chicago's bottom-six.
May 21 - 12:46 PM

Andrew Shaw (lower body) will not return to Chicago's lineup on Wednesday.

Shaw took part in Wednesday's practice, but skated on the team's fifth line. He said on Tuesday that he feels like he's ready to return, but he only recently started practicing, so it's not surprising that the Blackhawks are giving him a little more time to recover.
May 21 - 12:22 PM

Andrew Shaw (lower body) hopes to return to Chicago's lineup on Wednesday night.

"I feel like I'm ready to play, but that's not my decision to make," Shaw said after returning to practice on Tuesday. "I'm getting prepared like I'm going to play (Wednesday)." Coach Joel Quenneville isn't sure yet if Shaw will return. Shaw hasn't played since May 2 and Tuesday was his first practice, so the Blackhawks may hold him out until Sunday for Game 3.
May 20 - 5:56 PM

Andrew Shaw took part in Tuesday's practice, but he isn't likely to return from his lower-body injury in Game 2 against Los Angeles.

He skated on the Blackhawks' fifth line during the session alongside Jeremy Morin and Joakim Nordstrom. Shaw hasn't played since May 2, which was Game 1 against the Minnesota Wild in Round 2 of the postseason. However, he is getting closer to being available.
May 20 - 12:35 PM

Andrew Shaw (lower body) is projected to take part in Tuesday's practice.

Shaw hasn't been practicing with Chicago, but he did skate on his own for a third straight day on Monday. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville didn't rule out the possibility of Shaw returning for Game 2 on Wednesday.

Andrew Shaw (lower body) skated on Saturday, as expected, but he won't be ready to play in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final against Los Angeles.

He has been out of action, with what is believed to be a leg injury, since the opening game of Round 2. Shaw has two goals and two assists in seven postseason contests.
May 17 - 2:11 PM

Despite being expected to skate this weekend, Andrew Shaw (lower body) is not at the Blackhawks' practice Saturday.

Perhaps he will skate on his own after practice or will wait until Sunday to don skates.
