Andrew Shaw gets suspended by the AHL…again

Andrew Shaw established himself with the Chicago Blackhawks last season by scoring 12 goals and 23 points in 37 games as a rookie.

He also has spent quite a bit of time in the sin bin and his suspension history is getting pretty noteworthy for a 21-year-old.

Shaw was playing in his fourth game since serving a six-game suspension when he was involved in a boarding incident during Wednesday’s AHL contest between Rockford and Chicago. The AHL has decided to suspend him for Saturday’s match as a result.

Shaw also attracted attention when he charged into Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith during the first round of the 2012 NHL playoffs. Shaw was handed a controversial three-game suspension as punishment.

On the bright side, Shaw scored a goal in each of the four contests he played between his two latest suspensions.
