Canadiens trade Shaw to Blackhawks for draft picks


  • The Montreal Canadiens have traded Shaw and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Chicago Blackhawks for a second and seventh-round pick in 2020, and a third-round pick in 2021
  • Surely this is to free up salary cap space.
  • Shaw has three years remaining on his contract at $3.9 million per season.
  • The Canadiens are now up to around $12 million in cap space.
  • All set and ready for the 1st of July.
  • They now have all the space they need to make the best offer to Matt Duchene.
  • Shaw had 19 goals and a career-high 47 points in 63 games with the Canadiens last season.
  • He is signed through 2021-22 on a deal with a $3.9-million average annual value.
  • Shaw spent the first five seasons of his career with the Blackhawks, winning two Stanley Cups (2013, 2015), after being drafted by Chicago in 2011.
  • He was traded to Montreal in 2016 for two second-round picks.
