The Blackhawks rewarded center Andrew Shaw with a two-year, $4 million contract extension on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Shaw would have been a restricted free agent after the season. Shaw is now locked up through 2015-16.

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

Shaw, a member of the 2013 Stanley Cup team, currently ranks sixth on the club with 11 points on 4 goals and 7 assists and leads the Hawks with 51 hits through 18 games.

Shaw was a fifth-round draft pick (139th overall) in 2011.
