Chicago Blackhawks By The Numbers Looks At The Numbers A Chicago Blackhawks Player Put Up This Past Season And For His Career. Today We Look Back At Andrew Shaw‘s Numbers.

With the Chicago Blackhawks offseason in full tilt, one of the biggest questions heading into the summer is whether or not Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman will be able to squeeze Shaw back into the fold with the normal Chicago Blackhawks salary cap issues.  Here’s a look at Shaw’s numbers.

Goals-14

Andrew Shaw for the 2nd straight season witnessed his goal total drop after hitting a career high two seasons ago when he hit the 20 goal scored plateau.  To be honest, Shaw is the perfect soldier never complaining about which line he plays on and he is willing to play on the top line, a centerman on any line or a 4th line winger.  To be honest he’s best at an annoying winger on the bottom line, but he does pick up special team goals for his willingness to get in front of the net and take punishment.

Goals By The Years

  • 12-12
  • 13-9
  • 14-20
  • 15-15
  • 16-14
  • Career Total-70

Assists-20

This was a career high season of assists for Shaw, and the question for a guy who has played center for the majority of his career is why does he have more goals than assists in his career. Well the answer is simple, he’s not a creative player but a grinder so will he be worth the bigger contract or can a Ryan Hartman or Vincent Hinostroza fill his role.

Assists By The Years

  • 12-11
  • 13-6
  • 14-9
  • 15-11
  • 16-20
  • Career Assist Totals-67

Corsi Number-51.3

This was the lowest career number for Andrew Shaw which really goes hand in hand with the rest of the team which really struggled all year long in an area they usually dominated.  Sure, his ever changing linemates had to be part of the problem, but with the Hawks struggling at the blue line all year long, it became an issue for the rest of the roster like Shaw as well.

Career Corsi Numbers

  • 12- 53.2
  • 13- 53.1
  • 14- 57.7
  • 15- 55.3
  • 16- 51.3

Playoff Numbers- 4 goals 2 assists 

Hey, who would have thought the Andrew Shaw would be the leading goal scorer for the Chicago Blackhawks in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the St. Louis Blues.  Shaw found the area on the ice that could beat Brian Elliott, but it was too little too late for the Hawks in their 7 game series.

Intangibles

There is no way to measure this, but according to Joel Quenneville he’s irreplaceable.  Shaw does things that no one else does, but he also does things that are annoying like take bad penalties or when his team needs him most gets suspended in the playoffs which has happened the last two times the Hawks have been bounced in the first round of the playoffs.
