  • Sheahan scored a third-period goal and logged 18:42 of ice time during Thursday's 3-1 win over Ottawa. Sheahan has now marked the scoresheet in consecutive games, and his 18:42 of ice time was his highest total since joining Pittsburgh. With Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin locked in as the team's top two centers, Sheahan will likely struggle to provide consistent offense from a bottom-six role. As a result, he shouldn't be counted on in the majority of fantasy settings.

  • Sheahan picked up an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime victory over the Oilers. Overall, it was an impressive showing for Pittsburgh's newest forward. The 25-year-old logged a season-high 14:47 of ice time, won nine of 13 faceoffs, and blocked a shot. While he likely won't be much of a fantasy asset, Sheahan is doing exactly the job that the Penguins acquired him to do.

    Sheahan is the newest Penguin after the Red Wings packaged him and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick for Scott Wilson and a 2018 third-round pick Saturday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. The hockey rumor mill had been buzzing about such a trade for quite some time, but now it's finally transpired with Detroit desperate to free up cap space following its re-signing up-and-coming forward Andreas Athanasiou to a one-year, $1.3875 million contract Friday. This should be a boon to Sheahan's fantasy stock, as he fell out of favor in Motown after posting just two goals, 11 assists and a minus-29 rating through 80 games last season, but now he gets to join the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions.

  • Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Poor play persists
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sheahan hasn't recorded a point through his first five games. It appears that 2010's first-round (21st overall) draft pick is still struggling with his confidence after playing 80 games last season and not scoring until the season finale, when he infamously put two goals past the Devils. Of course, not helping matters is that Sheahan's only averaging 9:12 of ice time and has been relegated to a fourth-line role. We're starting to think that only a change of scenery could save what little fantasy value he has left.

  • Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Set for fourth-line duty
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sheahan is likely to slot in on the fourth line for the Red Wings once the new season gets underway, reports. Last year, Sheahan struggled to a putrid minus-29 rating and didn't score until the very last game, when he happened to put two past the Devils. The Vegas expansion club overlooked him, so he'll remain in Motown with one year left on a contract at an annual cost of $2.075 million. With Detroit's NHL franchise currently about $4 million in the salary-cap hole, Sheahan will need to have a strong training camp to avoid the dreaded waiver process -- or, more likely, a trade.
