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.
Shaw scored a power-play goal and doled out two hits in Friday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
Shaw's third-period goal gave the Blackhawks a 3-0 lead. It was his first tally of the year. The 29-year-old forward has added an assist, 10 hits, 11 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating through five contests. While he's still a physical presence on the third line, Shaw doesn't score like he used to. He's worth a look in deeper formats due to his usage on the power play.
Shaw has one assist and four shots on goal in three games this season.
Since scoring a career-high 47 points during the 2018-19 campaign, Shaw has just 11 points in 29 games over the last two seasons with Chicago. The Blackhawks have scored just five goals in three games to open the season so the 29-year-old isn't alone with his lack of offense. Unless he moves into the top-six, Shaw could post disappointing scoring numbers again this season.
According to general manager Stan Bowman, Shaw (concussion) has been medically cleared ahead of training camp, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Shaw only appeared in 26 games with the Blackhawks last season before missing the rest of the year with a concussion, picking up 10 points while racking up 74 hits over that span. It remains to be seen what kind of role the feisty forward will have in 2020-21, so virtual managers should plan on taking a wait-and-see approach with Shaw.
Shaw (concussion) indicated Monday that he intends to return for the 2020-21 season, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Shaw sat out all but 26 games in 2019-20 due to a concussion and admitted that he had battled with concussions the previous season, as well. While it may not spell an end to his career at this point, it certainly puts him more in danger of longer absences should future incidents occur. For now, Shaw is gearing up for a return to the Blackhawks next season after compiling 10 points (three goals, seven assists) this year.
Shaw (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.
Shaw has already been sidelined for three months due to a concussion, and he's evidently still experiencing symptoms. The 28-year-old forward will finish the campaign having notched three goals and seven assists in 26 games.
Shaw is still experiencing concussion symptoms and isn't close to returning to game action, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Recoveries from concussions are impossible to predict, but at this point it's safe to assume Shaw won't be ready to return before the calendar flips to 2020. The feisty forward will remain on long-term injured reserve for the duration of his absence.
Shaw (concussion) was flipped to long-term injured reserve Monday.
Shaw was already on injured reserve, but his placement on LTIR will rule him out through the Christmas break. With the center unavailable, the club promoted Matthew Highmore from AHL Rockford, who figures to compete with Kirby Dach and Ryan Carpenter for Shaw's spot in the lineup.
Chicago placed Shaw (concussion) on injured reserve Friday.
Shaw will technically be eligible to return to action Sunday against Arizona, but until the Blackhawks provide another update on his status, he should be considered out indefinitely. Once he's given the green light, the 28-year-old will return to a middle-six role and a spot on one of Chicago's power-play units.
Shaw (concussion) won't practice Tuesday.
It's notoriously difficult to predict recovery timetables when it comes to concussions, so Shaw can be considered out indefinitely until he's able to get back on the ice for practice, at which point his return should be imminent. Dylan Strome and Drake Caggiula are both already dealing with concussions of their own, so Chicago will likely promote a forward from its AHL affiliate ahead of Thursday's matchup with Boston.
Shaw (undisclosed) won't play Monday against the Blues and is undergoing further evaluation.
The nature of Shaw's injury is unknown at this time, but expect another update from the team after he undergoes further testing. Shaw will press pause on a campaign that's seen him rack up three goals and 10 points through 26 games.
According to coach Jeremy Colliton, Shaw (hip) "should be fine" for Thursday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Shaw missed Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury, but it looks like his absence was likely precautionary. The feisty forward should continue to fill a bottom-six role while skating on Chicago's top power-play unit against the Lightning.
Shaw won't practice Wednesday due to a hip injury.
The Blackhawks have yet to release any details regarding the severity of Shaw's hip injury, but he should probably be considered questionable at best for Thursday's matchup with Tampa Bay at this point. If he's unable to go, Chicago will likely need to promote a forward from its AHL affiliate to fill in against the Lightning.
Shaw registered an assist, two hits and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
Shaw set up Kirby Dach for the second goal of the game at 12:00 of the first period. The 28-year-old forward has a goal, two assists and eight hits in his last four games. For the year, Shaw's at six points, 49 hits and 33 shots on goal. He's probably not going to match the 47-point campaign he had with the Canadiens last year, but fantasy owners in deeper formats could do worse than Shaw for depth scoring.
Shaw scored a power-play goal on his lone shot in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.
Shaw one-timed a perfect centering feed from Dylan Strome to give Chicago a 2-0 lead late in the opening period. It was his third goal of the year but his first since scoring a pair in the second game of the season. Now in his second tour of duty with the Blackhawks, the 28-year-old has some work to do if he's to approach the 19 goals he scored for Montreal last year.
Shaw notched an assist, five shots on goal and three hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.
Shaw had the secondary helper on a Brandon Saad goal in the third period. The 28-year-old's second stint with the Blackhawks has gotten off to a slow start with just four points in 14 games. It was always unlikely for Shaw to replicate the 47-point campaign he had with the Canadiens in 2018-19, but he's capable of a better scoring pace than his current one. The forward has added 44 hits, 16 PIM and 26 shots.
