Sheahan ended his seven-game point drought with an assist during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Senators.
He also added a shot, a hit, and ended the night a plus-2. After a rough start to the season with the Penguins, Sheahan is overachieving with the Panthers. He has the same amount of points (nine) in 29 games with the Cats as he did in 49 contests with Pittsburgh.
Sheahan picked up an assist in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Thursday.
He added two shots on goal in the contest. Sheahan has produced three assists in seven games in March, and he has 17 points (eight goals, nine apples) in 70 games between the Penguins and the Panthers.
Sheahan tallied an assist during a 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday.
It was originally thought that Sheahan would be dealt at the trade deadline for future assets, but a deal never came to fruition. General manager Dale Tallon suggested the Panthers are looking at bringing the depth forward back next season, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. Sheahan has five points in his 13 games with the Cats.
Sheahan picked up his first goal as a Panther during a 6-3 win over the Canadiens on Sunday.
After a sluggish start to the season with the Penguins, a trade to South Florida seems to have given a breath of fresh air to Sheahan. He has four points in his eight games with the Cats, giving the team offensive depth it desperately needed.
Sheahan collected his first point with the Panthers -- an assist -- during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Penguins, his former teammates.
After a successful 2017-18 season that saw Sheahan put up 32 points with the Penguins, he has been having a down season. Thursday's assist is his 10th point through 52 games. We're expecting the Panthers to trade Sheahan before the deadline.
Sheahan saw 14:01 in ice time as he helped kill off the Blues' only penalty in an eventual 3-2 loss on Tuesday.
Although it is expected that Sheahan will be dealt again by the deadline, head coach Bob Boughner has not shied away from playing the gritty forward on the penalty kill. However, Sheahan has yet to tally a point and has only one shot on goal during his first two games with the Panthers.
Sheahan -- along with Derick Brassard (upper body), a 2019 second-round pick and two 2019 fourth-round picks -- were traded from Pittsburgh to Florida in exchange for Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann on Friday.
Sheahan started off strong for the Penguins last season, as he notched 11 goals, 21 helpers and 104 shots in 73 outings, but he has fallen into a slump this year. The 26-year-old center has managed just nine points in 49 games while playing on the fourth line. The Ontario native could slot into a natural center position with the Panthers, rather than being deployed as a winger as he was in Pittsburgh, which could help him rediscover his scoring touch.
Sheahan scored his seventh goal of the season in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
The goal is Sheahan's first point since Jan. 8. He's averaging just 0.18 points per game, so even in deeper leagues, deploying Sheahan is not recommended. The 27-year-old fourth-liner has found the scoresheet nine times -- seven goals and two assists -- in 49 games this season.
Sheahan is pointless in five straight games heading into the All-Star break.
At this point, any offensive contributions by Sheahan should be considered icing on the cake, as the fourth-line winger's main role is killing penalties. The 27-year-old is logging 2:07 of ice time per game shorthanded and should continue to fill that role for the club the rest of the way. With a mere eight points in 47 contests, Sheahan is unlikely to hit the 30-point mark as he did last year.
Sheahan is pointless in five straight games and hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 6.
Sheahan's career has been marked by length slumps, which is why he was traded away from Detroit in the first place. Unfortunately for the natural center, the team is stocked down the middle -- especially with the return of Matt Cullen -- so he has been forced to play more on the wing in a fourth-line role. What will keep Sheahan in the Penguins' lineup is his penalty killing, where he is averaging 2:25 of ice time -- though it won't provide much in terms of fantasy value.
Sheahan won't play in Saturday's game versus the Senators.
It's unclear if this is injury-related, but it's plausible he's a healthy scratch since he has just two points and a minus-9 rating through 17 games. That's not the production the Penguins expect out of Sheahan after he produced 32 points last year. If he is injured, there will be a report after the contest.
Sheahan picked up a helper in Thursday's 9-1 dismantling of Calgary.
With his assist, Sheahan ended a five-game pointless streak. The 26-year-old has been playing alongside Matt Cullen on a defensively minded fourth line, but he should still be able to find ways to contribute in the offensive zone.
Sheahan scored the Penguins' lone goal in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Canadiens.
Sheahan was able to briefly give the Penguins some life at the end of the second period with a rebound goal, though it didn't amount to a comeback. The good news is he appears to be nearly fully-recovered from the lower body injury he had coming into the season.
Sheahan (lower body) is slated to suit up against the Sabres on Wednesday.
Sheahan will be making his preseason debut versus Buffalo and figures to also slot into the lineup for Friday's final tuneup against the Jackets. How coach Mike Sullivan plans to deploy the Ontario native -- along with Derick Brassard and Matt Cullen -- will likely be determined over the next two contests, but early indications would suggest that Sheahan is the least likely of the three to move to the wing.
Sheehan (lower body) is inching towards a return. According to coach Mike Sullivan, "I thought (Sheahan) has a great practice today...Barring any setbacks, we're going to try to get him in exhibition games."
The Penguins have two more tuneups remaining -- Wednesday versus Buffalo and Friday against Columbus -- so it looks like Sheahan might be able to suit up in one or both of those outings. Even if the center doesn't appear in a preseason contest, he should be ready in time for Opening Night against the Capitals on Oct. 4.
Sheahen (lower body) took the ice for another solo skating session Friday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Sheahan has yet to join his teammates on the ice for a camp session. There aren't any indications that the center won't be ready for Opening Night, however, fantasy owners may want to continue to monitor his status in the coming weeks.
Sheahan (lower body) took a twirl on the ice ahead of Wednesday's practice session.
Sheahan won't practice following his skating session, but it's certainly a step in the right direction. As of now, it doesn't seem like the Ontario native's injury will impact his availability for Opening Night. With Brassard expected to move to the wing, Sheahan will take over the third-line center role.
Sheahan didn't take part in Friday's practice due to a nagging lower-body injury.
The Penguins are reportedly taking a cautious approach with Sheahan's recovery, so he may not be available for the team's first few preseason games, but there's no reason to suspect he's in danger of missing the Oct. 4 season opener against Washington at this juncture. Another update on the 26-year-old pivot's status should be made available once he's able to return to practice.
Sheahan was unable to take part in Friday's training camp session due to an undisclosed injury.
The team did not immediately provide an update on the nature of Sheahan's injury, so it's unclear whether he will be available for the team's first preseason outing versus Buffalo on Tuesday -- or if it might linger into the regular season.
Sheahan earned a one-year, $2.1 million contract extension with the Penguins on Wednesday.
Formerly with the Red Wings, Sheahan was traded to Pittsburgh last October, and he proceeded to fashion 11 goals and 21 assists in a bottom-six role with a special emphasis on the penalty kill. Since the Penguins are flush with offensive weapons down the middle, Sheahan is occasionally rendered a forgotten man by the opposition, making him a sneaky value play on most nights.
