Shaw (concussion) is retiring from the NHL. Concussions have forced the 29-year-old winger into an early retirement, but Shaw enjoyed a fruitful career before the unfortunate run-in with injuries. He captured a pair of Stanley Cups with the Blackhawks and finishes his career with 116 goals and 247 points in 544 games spread over 10 seasons; seven with Chicago and three with Montreal.
Shaw (concussion) was placed on long-term injured reserve Friday. According to Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times, general manager Stan Bowman told reporters doctors will determine if Shaw will be able to continue playing once he "starts feeling better from his concussion," but at this point it seems as though the 29-year-old forward may be forced into an early retirement. If that ends up being the case, the two-time Stanley Cup champion will hang up his skates having amassed 116 goals, 131 assists and 573 PIM in 544 career appearances.
Shaw (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Shaw missed most of the 2019-20 campaign with a concussion, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss extended time with his latest head injury. The 29-year-old forward has picked up four points through 14 games this campaign.
Shaw has entered the league's concussion protocol, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports. This is brutal news for Shaw, who missed the majority of the 2019-20 campaign with a concussion. For now, the feisty winger should be considered out indefinitely. With Shaw no longer in the mix, Mattias Janmark could see additional opportunities on Chicago's No. 1 power-play unit going forward.
Shaw scored a power-play goal on three shots in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Hurricanes. Shaw's tally came in the dying seconds of the first period to give the Blackhawks a 3-1 lead. While that advantage didn't hold up, Chicago won in the end. The 29-year-old Shaw has two goals and two assists in 12 games, and all of his offense has come with the man advantage. He's added 23 shots, 20 hits and six PIM.
