Sheahan (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 1 against Chicago, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. Sheahan missed Tuesday's exhibition game against the Flames with an undisclosed issue, but he'll slot into his usual spot on Edmonton's third line for Game 1. The 28-year-old pivot tallied 15 points in 66 games during the regular season.
Sheahan (undisclosed) returned to practice Thursday and could be an option against the Blackhawks on Saturday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports. If Sheahan is given the all-clear, he figures to draw into the third-line center role and should log plenty of minutes with the penalty kill. The center failed to reach the 20-point mark for the second straight year and likely won't offer much in terms of offensive production during the playoffs.
Sheahan (undisclosed) is slated to miss a day or two according to coach Dave Tippett, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports, meaning he won't be available for Tuesday's matchup with Calgary. Given his limited offensive upside (he managed just 15 points in 66 games this year), Sheahan won't provide much in terms of fantasy value during the postseason. On the ice, the center's absence would hamper the club's ability to kill penalties, giving the Hawks' top players a potential fantasy boost.
Sheahan (undisclosed) exited Saturday's scrimmage early, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. The Oilers won't be releasing any details regarding Sheahan's injury, but if he's forced to miss any game action, Gaetan Haas will likely get the first crack at taking his spot in the lineup. Sheahan's a solid two-way player, but he only picked up 15 points during the regular season, so fantasy players participating in playoff pools don't need to worry about tracking his status.
Sheahan netted an empty-net goal, blocked three shots and fired two shots on net in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets. Sheahan snapped a six-game point drought with the tally. The 28-year-old center has managed 15 points, 68 shots and a minus-12 rating through 64 contests. He's primarily been used in a bottom-six role this season.
