Andrew Shaw has a way of finding the puck. Or rather it has a way of finding him.
Just a friendly reminder that pucks and Andrew Shaw's face do not get along https://t.co/VVXK4tQ7jG— Mike Flanagan (@fLAno0) January 23, 2016
Shaw told Brian Hedger of NHL.com that he received 18 stitches and lost two teeth from the hit. He lost the two teeth because he ended up swallowing them. Shaw received new teeth Saturday.
After receiving stitches during the first period, Shaw returned only to hit again in the face at almost exactly the same time in the second period. This time he was struck above his left eye.

Shaw also caught a second puck in the face vs. FLA, above the left eye, later in the game. "It was a bad game." #Blackhawks— Brian Hedger (@BrianHedger) January 24, 2016
The 24-year-old winger has eight goals and 15 assists in 51 games this season for the Hawks.
