CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks signed forward Andrew Shaw to a two-year contract extension.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the deal has an average annual value of $2 million per season.

Shaw was slated to become a restricted free agent next summer.

"It's great to come to this agreement with Andrew and keep another important member of our team here in Chicago," general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement Tuesday. "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."

The 22-year-old Ontario native has four goals and seven assists in 18 games this season. He registered nine points, including five goals, during the Blackhawks' 2013 Stanley Cup title run.

A 2011 fifth-round draft pick, Shaw has totaled 25 goals and 24 assists in 103 career games with Chicago.
