Shaw was traded to Chicago from Montreal with a seventh-round pick in exchange for a second- and seventh-round pick in 2020 and a third-round pick in 2021 on Sunday, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports. Shaw will head back to Chicago, where he spent the first five seasons of his NHL career. Last season, he scored 19 goals and a career-high 47 points. Expect the veteran winger to play a similar top-six role with some time on the power play with the Blackhawks.
Shaw scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Maple Leafs. Shaw finished with 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in his last 10 games. And 47 points (19 goals, 28 assists) in 63 games. This was Shaw's best season by far and actually a 61-point pace. But he can't stay healthy. Shaw has played in 68, 51 and 63 games over the last three seasons, respectively. This guy could be a real fantasy stud given his combination of touch and grit.
Shaw tallied a pair of helpers in Tuesday's 6-1 win over Florida. Shaw's 2018-19 campaign has been one that's seen him find the scoresheet more than he ever has before. The two assists give him six points in his last five games, and for the season, the rugged forward is up to 42 points in 58 appearances.
Shaw finished with two assists in a 3-1 win over the Flyers on Tuesday. Shaw tallied his second helper of the evening on Max Domi's empty-net goal late in the third period, with his first assist coming earlier in the game, on Shea Weber's game-winning blast. The rugged forward needs just one more point to tie his career-best campaign from 2013-14. That year, Shaw, in 80 games, recorded 39 points. Assuming he plays all of the remaining games this season, Shaw will finish with 63 games played in 2018-19, making this year the best of his career from a point-per-game standpoint.
Shaw scored his 17th goal of the season in a 5-2 loss to the Sharks on Thursday. Shaw hadn't scored since a hat trick on Feb. 26, but he was able to convert one of his two shots in Thursday's game. In his last four games, he has 13 hits and a minus-3 rating. He has 34 points and 95 hits over 49 games this season, which might appeal to fantasy owners in deeper formats.
