He got few stitches on his cheek at that time. After Chicago Blackhawks won the finals and started the celebrations. Everyone may have remembered one moment when Shaw lifted the cup, blood spilled out from his cheek.
Joel Alpert of AM Sports Marketing met Shaw after the game 6 and asked if he’d be willing to auction the stitches off for charity.
After two months, the stitches were sold for $6,500 during the auction with 100 percent of the winnings going to benefit the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research.
