Identify a 1985(?) Nordiques-player from a picture

Answer is David Shaw.

I have a hockey postcard that has neither name nor number and I have came to conclusion that it is from 1985-86 season. Here's the checklist of the set so most likely it is one of them:

1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #1 Brent Ashton
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #2 Jeff Brown
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #3 Alain Cote
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #4 Gilbert Delorme
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #5 Gord Donnelly
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #6 Mike Eagles
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #7 Paul Gillis
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #8 Mario Gosselin (For sure not him)
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #9 Michel Goulet
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #10 Dale Hunter
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #11 Mark Kumpel
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #12 Jason Lafreniere
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #13 Clint Malarchuk (For sure not him)
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #14 Randy Moller
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #15 Robert Picard
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #16 Pat Price
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #17 Normand Rochefort
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #18 Richard Sevigny
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #19 David Shaw
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #20 Risto Siltanen
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #21 Anton Stastny
1985-86 Nordiques McDonald's #22 Peter Stastny

And here's the actual card:

I think I see a bit of a #4 on the sleeve and half an 'E' on the back.

The only one that would match that is Gilbert Delorme.

I think it may be David Shaw.

I was thinking Jason Lafreniere. Clearly this guy shoots from right.

But no, I'm not sure at all.

Shaw shoots from right, that's not a bad guess. I'm not saying it is correct for sure, but not the worst possible.

Also, he is #4 so unless proven otherwise, I can agree that it is him.

edit. Oh, and thanks for the help!

Judging from the same helmet worn in this image (sans visor) I think it is Shaw.

Good guess...
BUT...
How common it is for a player to change helmet (visor only), stick and gloves during one season?

that's true but that was not a very popular helmet in that era...

it's a Cooper (sk2000, I think): Rick Green I think wore that helmet on Montreal, Eric Desjardins later on... Tony Twist wore that helmet on the Nords... can't remember anyone else with it.

Winwell produced a similar looking helmet (Messier).

but most guys wore the CCM one that is the design-basis for all the helmets today
