#Fact: Andrew Shaw trending on Twitter

Rookie Andrew Shaw's short, but very productive run with the Blackhawks has garnered him plenty of attention from the media and plenty of adoration from the fans.

Five goals and six points in your first eight games -- plus a gritty, never-give-up style -- will do that, especially in Chicago. But after Wednesday's 6-2 rout of the Buffalo Sabres, Shaw's profile took off via Twitter.

Shaw, who before Wednesday's game told me his phone kept going off because of new followers, trended on Twitter via #ShawFacts, becoming a Chuck Norris-like legend.

Here are mine and some of my favorites from #ShawFacts late Wednesday night:
