Montreal Canadiens Media Release

MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Monday that the team has agreed to terms on a six-year contract with forward Andrew Shaw.

Acquired on Friday from the Chicago Blackhawks, Shaw scored 14 goals and registered 34 points in 78 games last season. He also was a standout during the playoffs, posting six points – including four goals – in six games.

“We are very pleased to have agreed to a long-term deal with Andrew Shaw. As I mentioned last Friday following his acquisition, we are adding a solid character player to our team, a reliable player who plays with grit and a two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Chicago Blackhawks over the past five seasons. Andrew will add more leadership to our team. I had the opportunity to discuss with him over the past few days, and I sense his determination and excitement in joining the Canadiens’ organization for many years to come,” said general manager Marc Bergevin.

A five-year NHL veteran, the Belleville, ON native won the Stanley Cup twice in Chicago, hoisting the coveted trophy in both 2012-13 and again in 2014-15.
