Chicago Blackhawks: Andrew Shaw Days Until Banner Raising
Jun 24, 2013; Boston, MA, USA; Chicago Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw hoists the Stanley Cup after game six of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. The Blackhawks won 3-2 to win the series four games
65 days until the Blackhawks raise another Stanley Cup Championship banner to the rafters of the United Center.
#65- Andrew Shaw is the only Chicago Blackhawk in team history to wear #65. Shaw has had a pretty wild ride since getting drafted in the 5th round of the 2011 draft. Shaw made his premiere in early 2012 and created the Twitter craze #ShawFacts. Shaw had a pretty solid rookie season, but was out of control against the Phoenix Coyotes which included getting suspended for running over goalie Mike Smith. In 2013 Shaw was part of the best 3rd line in the NHL, he scored the game winner in triple overtime of Game #1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and after taking a shot to the face in Game #6 was the perfect picture of a hockey player bloodied while lifting the Stanley Cup.
