The Chicago Blackhawks traded forward Andrew Shaw to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for two second-round draft picks in Friday night's NHL draft, the team said.

In a press release, the Blackhawks said they traded Shaw for the 39th and 45th picks overall, giving the team 10 overall selections in the 2016 draft including three in the second round.

Shaw, 24, registered 34 points in 78 regular season games and six points in six playoff games, the team said. Drafted in 2011, he won the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2013 and 2015.
