The Canadiens made some real noise on day one of the NHL draft, when they traded their two second-round picks to the Blackhawks for the rights to Andrew Shaw. There was no shortage of rumours linking Shaw or the Blackhawks to the Canadiens, but the move shocked us all nonetheless.
He brings with him the experience of a player that has won the Stanley Cup a few times. Marc Bergevin should know him rather well, considering that he was instrumental in drafting Shaw to the Blackhawks.
Here is a video montage of the Canadiens newest acquisition, and what he brings to the table.
One thing is for sure, Shaw brings a set of skills that is attractive for the Canadiens. Only time will tell if this trade works out for them.
In any case, pending a contract extension, we should expect him to be donning the CH this October.
