Andrew Shaw is headed back to Chicago.

The Chicago Blackhawks have re-acquired the 27-year-old power forward and a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NHL draft from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for second- and seventh-round selections in 2020 and a third-round pick in 2021, the team announced Sunday.

Shaw had 19 goals and a career-high 47 points in 63 games with the Canadiens last season. He is signed through 2021-22 on a deal with a $3.9-million average annual value.

Shaw spent the first five seasons of his career with the Blackhawks, winning two Stanley Cups (2013, 2015), after being drafted by Chicago in 2011.

He was traded to Montreal in 2016 for two second-round picks.
