Blackhawks trade Andrew Shaw


With the Blackhawks seeking more prime spots in the first round of this week’s NHL Draft, they made a move….a heartbreaking move as they have traded the ‘ManChild’ Andrew Shaw to the Montreal Canadians. According to NBC5, in exchange for Shaw, the Hawks receive two second round draft picks from the Canadiens, the 39th and 45th overall selections in the 2016 NHL Draft.  Rumors were running Friday afternoon that Shaw was seeking a $4.5 million-a-year deal and with the Blackhawks up against a salary cap, this move seemed likely. Trades earlier this week saw the Hawks get the 50th overall pick in the trade that sent Bryan Bickell and Teuvo Teravainen to the Carolina Hurricanes.

With Shaw leaving town, let’s remember the good times.
