Chicago Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw has been out since May 3 when he suffered a leg injury after colliding with Minnesota Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner. Though he was only listed day-to-day at the time, his return is approaching, according to Brian Stubits of CBSSports.com.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Shaw will likely return Saturday, in time for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Kings. It will give Shaw a little more time to rest and practice before the game, though he will miss Wednesday night's Game 2 in Chicago.

Shaw has two goals and two assists in seven games this postseason.

From CBSSports.com:

"We want to make sure the way he plays, we want him more than ready," Quenneville said on Wednesday. "A few more days and a couple more practices, we'll get him up to speed.

"He wanted to play today, but we felt it was in everybody's best interest to shoot for Saturday."

Although Shaw is eager to return, the additional rest days should help propel him through the rest of the series.
