RW - CHI
Andrew Shaw recorded an assist Tuesday versus Nashville. The assist came on the power-play.
Shaw is a strong real-life player who helps his team in many ways. As a fantasy asset, he is a depth-play in most leagues with decent points and a career average of more than a PIM a game.
Andrew Shaw is being traded to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a second and seventh-round 2020 draft pick, as well as a third-round 2021 draft pick.
Shaw was traded from Chicago back in 2016 to the Montreal Canadiens. During his time with the Canadiens, he compiled 96 points through 182 games played. The two-time Stanley Cup champion is only 27 years old and has plenty to offer to a Chicago squad looking to end a two-year playoff drought.
Andrew Shaw scored his first career hat-trick as the Montreal Canadiens romped the Detroit Red Wings 8-1 Tuesday night.
Shaw now has 16 goals and 33 points in 45 games this season after missing significant time with a neck injury. His fantasy relevance is limited to single-night adds and daily fantasy formats.
Andrew Shaw factored in on both Canadiens goals in the loss to the Oilers on Tuesday. Shaw tallied an assist and a goal in the game.
Shaw is averaging just a half point per game right now and is a minus player on the year. On top of that, he is sub 40% in the faceoff dot this season. Unless Tuesday nights performance spurs a turnaround for a career 20-30 point per season guy, Shaw is best left in the free agency pool in fantasy.
