The 28-year-old shared a message on social media that he and his family “made the difficult decision that these extra five months until next season would be great for my health and recovery.”
Shaw has not played since November 30 due to a concussion. He also notes in his post that he is about to be completely healed from his last and previous concussions.
In 26 games in 2019-20, he scored three goals and 10 points. Shaw won two Stanley Cup championships with the Blackhawks in 2013 and 2015. He spent three seasons with the Montreal Canadiens from 2016 to 2019.
