  • Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Renews contract for one year

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/18) 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.

    Riley Sheahan: Set to hit free agency

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/25/18) Sheahan did not receive a qualifying offer from the Penguins and will become an unrestricted free agent, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    This comes as a bit of a surprise, but it was also reported by Mackey that Pittsburgh and Sheahan are in discussions on a new contract. Primarily filling the third-line center role, and later dropping to the fourth line after the acquisition of Derick Brassard, the 26-year-old registered 11 goals and 32 points in 15:17 of ice time during his 73 games with the Penguins. If the two sides don't reach an agreement, Sheahan will surely draw plenty of attention on the open market.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Pointless against Washington

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Sheahan was held off the scoresheet in the Penguins' second-round series versus Washington.

    Sheahan -- who was acquired via trade early in the season -- recorded his first 30-plus point campaign since 2014-15 and was a plus-4 for the Pens after posting a disastrous minus-29 with Detroit last year. He'll be a restricted free agent July 1, but Pittsburgh will almost certainly bring the center back into the fold for 2018-19 to continue utilizing him in a bottom-six role.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Garners helper Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/18) Sheahan picked up an assist in Sunday's 8-5 victory over Philadelphia.

    Sheahan worked the puck behind the net, where he left it for Phil Kessel, who then fed it to Carl Hagelin in front of the net. The 25-year-old Sheahan was pressed into duty on the Pens' second line after Evgeni Malkin (leg) was unable to suit up -- a role in which Sheahan appears to have settled into comfortably. Having said that, as soon as Geno is ready to return, fantasy owners should expect to see Sheahan back on the fourth line.

    Penguins' Riley Sheahan: Ices cake in commanding win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/19/18) Sheahan scored the final goal in Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Flyers.

    Flyers center Travis Konecny failed to pull down an airborne puck with his glove and it fell into the lap of Sheahan for his first goal and second point of the conference quarterfinals. Shehan is clearly in the bottom-six group, but he may actually be a decent value play in DFS pools since he hits the ice after opposing teams have the unenviable task of trying to slow Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Derick Brassard.
