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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/17/17) Sheahan is likely to slot in on the fourth line for the Red Wings once the new season gets underway, MLive.com 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.

    Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Available for the Vegas taking

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/17/17) Sheahan is highly likely to be available to the Golden Knights in the upcoming expansion draft, MLive.com reports.

    Here's a guy who really stumbled in the 2016-17 season. Sheahan finished with a team-low minus-29 rating and it took him until the final regular-season game -- when the Red Wings bid adieu to home rink Joe Louis Arena -- to light the lamp, though he did do it twice. Despite the horrendous campaign, Sheahan could attract the Vegas team due to his relatively cheap price tag; he'll bank $2.075 million with one year left on his contract before he'd become a restricted free agent.

    Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Finally gets on board in farewell to Joe Louis Arena

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) 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.

    Red Wings' Riley Sheahan: Tacks on assist, goals still elusive

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/17) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/17) 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.
