Andrew Shaw (upper body) won't return on Saturday.

Shaw also missed Thursday's game against Calgary. He has three goals and six points in 18 contests in 2014-15.
Nov 21 - 5:22 PM

Andrew Shaw will miss Thursday's game with an upper-body injury.

The ailment is viewed as short term, but it kept him off the ice Thursday morning.
Nov 20 - 2:32 PM

Andrew Shaw potted his third goal of the young season on Thursday night in Nashville but the Hawks fell 3-2 to the Predators.

Shaw now has four points through six games as the 23-year-old is providing decent offense for the Blackhawks so far. He managed to notch 39 points in 80 games last season.
Oct 23 - 11:40 PM

Andrew Shaw wants to improve his work in the faceoff circle.

He has won 46.9 percent of his draws through three games this season. "It's something you can't learn overnight," Shaw said. "It's something that's going to take time to get better at." He's learning from faceoff specialist Yanic Perreault and he has Jonathan Toews to practice with, so he should be able to make some progress.

Andrew Shaw scored on a Chicago power play in the Blackhawks' 2-1 overtime loss to the visiting Calgary Flames Wednesday night.

Shaw's goal, his second of the season, tied the game at 1-1 in the third period. The goal came on a tip-in of a shot by Patrick Sharp, whose numbers stood out in this one. Sharp fired a game-high eight shots on Calgary goalie Jonas Hiller but also happened to be on the ice for both of the Flames' goals for a game-worst minus-two.
Oct 15 - 11:30 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks' second line of Andrew Shaw, Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad played a big role in Saturday's 6-2 over Buffalo.

Shaw and Kane were named the game's second and third stars respectively. The line combined for two goals and seven points in the contest. "Playing with those two guys, they’re going to make plays, so I just try to go to the dirty areas and get them the puck and go to the net," Shaw said. "They seem to make a lot of things happen." If Shaw continues to center that line, he can be a very valuable commodity in fantasy leagues.
Oct 12 - 10:21 AM

The Blackhawks will ice the same forward lines Saturday night against Buffalo as they did in their win against Dallas Thursday night.

That means that Andrew Shaw will once again center the team's second line featuring Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad and Brad Richards will skate on the third unit. Obviously Shaw is the winner in this arrangement and Richards is the loser.
Oct 11 - 12:11 PM

Andrew Shaw appears to be likely to start the regular season on the second line.

He skated between Brandon Saad and Patrick Kane in Friday's preseason finale and the chemistry that the trio displayed last year is still very much intact. "It was so good last year in a short amount of time, and it was right at the end of the year," coach Joel Quenneville said. "It was almost like, 'Do I really want to break them up?'" If the call is made to keep Shaw on the second unit then Brad Richards will be bumped to the third line between Bryan Bickell and Kris Versteeg.
Oct 7 - 9:37 AM

Andrew Shaw isn't upset that his spot on the second line will probably be taken by Brad Richards this season.

"He knows what he's doing," Shaw said referring to coach Joel Quenneville. "We have a great group of guys, a real deep team. It just means we're going to win a lot of games." There's still a chance that Shaw could move up the lineup during the season, but he should continue to get opportunities to succeed after he had a career year offensively in 2013-14.
Sep 25 - 1:12 PM

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.
May 30 - 9:27 AM

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."
