The Canadiens signed Andrew Shaw to a six-year contract worth $23.4 million ($3.9M AAV).
Shaw, who was a restricted free agent, was acquired from Chicago for two draft picks during the NHL Draft over the weekend. The 24-year-old forward spent the first five years of his career with the Blackhawks, tallying 137 points (70G / 67A) and 300 PIMS in 322 games, including 34 points (14G / 20A) in 78 games last season.
The Predators have signed Filip Forsberg to a six-year deal worth $36 million ($6.0M AAV).
Forsberg was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1st, but is now signed through the 2021-22 season. Forsberg just wrapped up his second full NHL season with the Predators, where he recorded his first 30-goal season (33) with 31 assists to give him 64 points in 82 games. He has not missed a game in the last two years, finishing with nearly identical 63 and 64-point campaigns.
