The team announced Tuesday they had agreed with Shaw on a two-year deal that will keep the forward with the team through the 2015-16 season.

“It’s great to come to this agreement with Andrew and keep another important member of our team here in Chicago” said Blackhawks Vice President and General Manager Stan Bowman in a statement. “Andrew has proven his ability to play a prominent role on our team and we look forward to watching him continue to grow as a player for the Blackhawks.”
