Shaw played a big part in the Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup in 2013 and 2015. He was later traded from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Montreal Canadiens for two 2016 second round picks, which one of the turned out to be the two-time 40 goal scorer Alex Debrincat.

After spending a few season in Montreal in which he put up a career high in points in the 2018-19 season when he scored 47 points in 63 games. His entire time in Montreal though he was plagued with Injuries. Infact his entire career he has only played a full season once, and that was the 2012 lockout 48 game shortened season.

After being traded back to the Blackhawks, he managed to play parts of two seasons before announcing his retirement.
