Stanley Cup Championship

There is no data to display.

There's nothing worse than being a parent and watching your child get hurt.

Andrew Shaw, 21, took a puck to the face off a wrist shot from Bruins' Shawn Thornton with just over four minutes left in the first period.

Surprisingly enough, Shaw was back on the ice by the second period and his parents brushed the hit off too.

“He was either dead, or he comes back. That’s the way it is,” said Doug Shaw, Andrew's father.

“When he went down, we were a little concerned, because he never goes down,” said Darlene Shaw, Andrew's mother. “But he came back.”

Shaw played just over 10 minutes in Game 6 before hoisting the trophy over his battle wounds as a Stanley Cup champion.

His parents couldn't be more proud of their son.

“This is unbelievable,” said Doug Shaw. “There are guys that play 20 years and never get a chance. He’s the luckiest kid in the world."

“He loves the Hawks. He loves Chicago,” said Darlene Shaw.
