  • Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Drops two goals on Columbus

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/18) Sheahan provided two goals in Sunday's 5-2 road win over the Blue Jackets.

    Sheahan only had a pair of goals through 80 games with the Red Wings last year -- when he infamously potted those two in the last game of the season -- though he's looked much more comfortable in Pittsburgh. Granted this is the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions we're talking about, but Seahan might be on the map in extremely deep fantasy leagues based on his output of eight goals, 15 assists and a plus-5 rating through 52 games with the Pens.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Chips in two helpers in 7-4 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/18) Sheahan collected two assists during Friday's 7-4 win over Washington.

    The 26-year-old center has found a niche with the Penguins skating behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on the third line. The pair of helpers improve Sheahan to a respectable four goals and 14 assists while posting a 50.1 Corsi For percentage through 44 games since leaving Detroit in late October. However, while he's filled a real-world void for Pittsburgh, there aren't many fantasy settings where Sheahan warrants a roster spot.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Two helpers Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/18) Sheahan dished out a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Flyers.

    The beneficiaries of his feeds were Ryan Reaves and Tom Kuhnhackl, who came into this contest with a combined two goals this season. Don't expect Sheahan to replicate this performance often if he's not given the opportunity to play with some more skilled linemates in Pittsburgh's top-heavy offense.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Seeing power-play time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/17) Sheahan fired off two shots on goal in 12:50 of ice time Monday during a 4-2 victory over Pittsburgh.

    Despite not being able to roll in a point during the tilt, Sheahan has been filling the statsheet lately notching nine points (three goals, six assists) in his last 16 games, and has appeared on the second power-play unit in each of the last two contests. This is arguably the hottest streak the Ontario native's had over the last two seasons, but with his presence nearly cemented on the third line with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin being the other centers in Pittsburgh, it'll be hard for him to keep up the pace -- especially since he's only averaging 13:42 of ice time on the season.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Scores first goal with Penguins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/17) 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.
