Shaw collected two assists during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

The feisty winger now has three goals and three assists during a five-game point streak and is up to a respectable 15 points for the campaign. Shaw's fantasy value still relies on his contributions in the PIM and hit columns, and he offers respectable value in deeper settings because of his cross-category profile. However, it's important to remember that Shaw has a single 20-goal showing on his resume and has never hit the 40-point mark.

Shaw scored a goal on two shots and had a forward-high 19:29 of ice time in Saturday's 10-1 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Shaw ran his point streak to four games and has goals in three of them. The 26-year-old forward has managed to corral the instinct to take bad penalties, which has led to an increase in playing time -- both at even strength and the power play -- and scoring opportunities.

Shaw scored an empty-net goal, registered two shots and threw three body checks during Monday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

This was Shaw's first point in six games, which is frustrating because he had collected four goals and three assists through the prior eight outings. The gritty winger is up to a respectable five goals and 10 points through 25 games for the campaign, but with a minus-10 rating, he's struggling to significantly tilt the fantasy scales in any one category. Considering his underwhelming offensive track record, it's probably best to leave Shaw to the deepest settings or formats weighing PIM and hits heavily.

Shaw netted his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over Buffalo. It came on the power play.

EDGE Analysis

Shaw has eight points (four goals, four assists) in his last 10 games; four of those points have come on the power play. Shaw's best season came in 2013-14 when he had 20 goals and 39 points in 80 games. He has an increased role in Montreal, so that total could be obliterated by season's end. Shaw can help your squad, especially if he has dual eligibility at both wing and center.

Shaw (undisclosed) said he will suit up for Thursday's home contest against the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

A pesky agitator who sometimes doubles as a playmaker, Shaw has really turned it up a notch in the attacking zone by averaging one point over his last six games, a hot stretch that included five wins for the Habs. It appears safe to leave the Ontario native active in all fantasy leagues at this time.

Shaw's status for Thursday's clash with Minnesota is up in the air due to an undisclosed ailment, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shaw was held out of practice for a "therapy day" according to the team, which did not release any additional details regarding the nature of his injury. If the winger is unable to give it a go, Jacob De La Rose would likely slot into the lineup -- although the Habs could opt to recall a player from the minors instead.

Shaw delivered two power-play goals in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

Shaw is on pace to equal his best NHL season ever (20 goals, 19 assists with Chicago in 2013-14). There's value in his game in deep formats.

Shaw had a goal on three shots and had a hit over 17:06 of ice time in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Shaw, who missed practice Wednesday because of the flu, went from his sick bed to the ice to score his first goal of the season. He's posted four points over the last five games as Shaw has clearly benefited from skating on a line with Max Pacioretty and Phillip Danault. Will that continue? The Habs were pretty bad from goaltender on out Thursday, so we'd anticipate head coach Claude Julien shaking up his lines in advance of Saturday's road game in Winnipeg.

Shaw (illness) confirmed that he'll be back in the lineup Thursday night against the Wild,

EDGE Analysis

Expect the center who plays with sandpaper-like grit to reprise his role in the top six and on the first power-play unit. He's notched four assists and 20 PIM in 12 games this season, but that seems to only be moving the needle in deep fantasy leagues.

Shaw was absent from Wednesday's practice because of the flu, but traveled with the team ahead of Thursday's game in Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Though he's still without a goal this season, Shaw has racked up four assists in the past six games and seems to be getting his play back on track, so it would be unfortunate if illness prevented him from trying to keep it going Thursday. The team should provide a further update on Shaw's status after Thursday's morning skate, though if he's unable to go, expect Jacob De La Rose to take his place on the second line and Michael McCarron to assume Shaw's role as the net-front presence on the team's top power-play unit.
