NEW YORK (April 10th, 2015) -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced today.
Shaw was issued a Warning following an incident flagged by NHL Hockey Operations during NHL Game No. 228 against Tampa Bay on Nov. 11. His second Citation, which triggered the $2,000 fine, was issued for an incident during NHL Game No. 1138 against Los Angeles on March 30. Shaw drew a delayed penalty to Los Angeles forward Mike Richards on the play, at 5:24 of the first period. The penalty to Richards was nullified when Chicago scored seven seconds later.
from Kerry Fraser of TSN,
The margin for error with regard to the location of contact was very miniscule when Andrew Shaw launched into the air and delivered a high hit on Barret Jackman just as the Blues defender released a pass from behind the net. We can only assume that Jackman's chest and right shoulder was the intended target of Shaw's hit based on the result. So many things can go wrong when a player leaves his feet to become airborne. It was most fortunate for both players that Jackman's head did not become the main point of contact of Shaw's upward launch. If that had been the case, I would hope that the penalty assessment would be different and that a suspension would be imposed.
The absence of significant contact or Jackman's head being the main point of contact eliminates a violation of Rule 48 (illegal check to the head) and which could most likely result in a suspension for an illegal check of this magnitude. Instead, since Shaw left his feet to deliver a check where the main point of contact was to the upper body and off the head of Jackman, a violation of Rule 42 (charging) occurred.
Andrew Shaw got all of his two minutes worth for this charging penalty.

from Tracey Myers of CSNChicago,
Andrew Shaw hasn’t forgotten the lessons he learned in his Belleville, Ont., upbringing, be it from the town’s working mentality — or his father’s putting him to work in the summers.
“I did all the brutal jobs, the jobs you pay a guy five dollars an hour to do,” Shaw told Pat Boyle. “As a kid I’d be carrying lumber, holding stuff in a pail. But I think it was good. It made me grow (into) who I am today.”
Shaw talked of his blue-collar upbringing and how it shaped him with Boyle for an Inside Look, which will air at 5 p.m. Thursday on CSNChicago. For Shaw, life in Belleville (pop. 49,500) had its fun and its hockey. It also had its work. His father, Doug, a contractor, made sure Andrew always had that put-the-work-in mentality, and it resonated through the years.
“I always saw my dad work extremely hard for me and my brothers to play hockey,” Shaw said. “Just (to) have the average job, punch in at 7 in the morning, they worked hard and I think it wore off on me. I saw what it takes to get by in this world and I've always push myself to work as hard as I could.”
from the Chicago Blackhawks,
The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have agreed to terms with forward Andrew Shaw on a two-year contract extension, through the end of the 2015-16 National Hockey League season.
“It’s great to come to this agreement with Andrew and keep another important member of our team here in Chicago” said Blackhawks Vice President and General Manager Stan Bowman. “Andrew has proven his ability to play a prominent role on our team and we look forward to watching him continue to grow as a player for the Blackhawks.”
