Andrew Shaw is pretty happy to be with the Blackhawks again.

The forward was brought back to Chicago along with a 2021 seventh-round pick in late June from the Canadiens in exchange for three draft picks (2020 second- and seventh-round picks and 2021 third-round pick). The soon-to-be 28-year-old played his first five seasons with Chicago after being drafted by the team in 2011, and won two Stanley Cup championships in 2013 and 2015. The Blackhawks traded him in June 2016 to Montreal in exchange for two second-round picks (Alex DeBrincat and prospect Chad Krys).

Shaw took to Instagram to share his appreciation for his time with the Canadiens.

“Want to thank everyone in the Montreal Canadiens Organization for everything you did for me and my family! Want my teammates to know that I will always cherish our time together and will always consider you guys my brothers, but in saying that keep your heads up when I’m on the ice! (wink face).

“Thank you to the Hab fans for all your support over the last three years! I met a lot of you over the years and you treated me and my family so well and we thank you for making us fell at home!”

He finished the post by sharing his excitement about returning to Chicago and giving his new teammates a bit of a warning.

“Also (want) to thank the Chicago Blackhawks Organization for believing in me and bringing me back to the city that help(ed) make me who I am today! My family and I have grown and we are all so excited and happy to make Chicago our home again! Can’t wait to create more amazing memories in the Windy City!

“To my new teammates, I’m excite to annoy you guys, share some laughs, go to war with you every night and most importantly win another championship! Lastly, can’t wait to play at the UC (United Center) again in front of the best fans I could ever ask for! The Mutt is back baby!”
