  • Sheahan scored his first two goals of the season in Sunday's regular-season finale win over the Devils. Sheahan, who was Detroit's first-round (21st overall) pick from 2010, misfired on 107 of 109 shots this season for a dismal 1.8 conversion percentage, but the burly forward put a bookmark in franchise history by scoring the final goal at Joe Louis Arena, which had been Detroit's home rink since 1979.

  • Sheahan picked up a secondary assist in Monday's 5-4 shootout win over the Senators. The hulking pivot desperately needs a strong finish. He's got the worst plus-minus rating on the team (minus-29) and his confidence must be crushed by coming up empty on all 105 shots this campaign. Still, he has another year left at $2.075 million before he'd become a restricted free agent, so the Wings are likely to be patient with him. From a fantasy perspective, it seems that Sheahan can only go up from here. Don't forget that he dropped in 61 points combed over the previous two seasons -- that's more in line with what you should expect from the third-liner next year.

  • Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Content staying in Motown
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sheahan is happy to still be a Red Wing after Wednesday's trade deadline, MLive.com reports. Despite a putrid 2016-17 campaign that includes only nine points -- all assists -- along with a minus-19 rating in 59 games, Sheahan reportedly had some executives from other teams inquiring about him on Deals Day. He does have experience working on special teams, so that may have been why GM Ken Holland didn't want to sell low on the 25-year-old pivot. From a financial standpoint, he has it made in Detroit, signing a two-year, $4.15 million deal ahead of this season. Still, it takes tremendous patience to wait on a guy like Sheahan to turn it around in the fantasy realm; you'd probably be better off scouring the wire.

  • Sheahan registered a primary assist to break a tie in the first period of Sunday's game against the Penguins. The Red Wings would end up with a big 5-2 road win. Sheahan's outing reminds us of the old adage, "Even a broken clock is right two times a day." The 25-year-old pivot has really struggled this season, as he's skated to a minus-19 rating and is still looking for that elusive goal despite hoisting 78 shots in 57 games. Wings coach Jeff Blashill likes deploying Sheahan on special teams -- he's averaging 1:04 on the power play and 1:11 during the penalty kill -- but he's not producing in those situations. It's best to leave the Ontario native on the wire in fantasy.

  • Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Still goalless this season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sheehan has just seven points -- all assists -- in 47 games this year. In addition to the goose egg in the goal column, Sheehan has skated to a hideous minus-17 rating. It's the second straight year the 2010 first-rounder has experienced a decline, as he went from 36 points two seasons ago to 25 in 2015-16, and is currently on pace for a paltry 12.
