Andrew Shaw's offseason will start in the operating room.

The Montreal Canadiens forward is scheduled to undergo knee surgery on Tuesday. Shaw suffered the injury against the Dallas Stars on March 13, and did not dress for the team's final 12 regular-season games.

Shaw re-aggravated a knee injury on the play - previously described as a lower-body injury - that kept him out of the lineup for 19 games.

Shaw also suffered a concussion on the same play, and experienced concussion symptoms for the following three days. He has now been medically cleared.

The veteran forward is expected to make a full recovery prior to next season's training camp.

The Canadiens acquired Shaw from the Chicago Blackhawks in 2016.
