Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Hit in face with puck
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan went to the locker room in the third period of Tuesday's game versus the Flyers after taking a puck to the face, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Sheahan was injured late in the third period, giving him little chance of returning to the contest. The severity of Sheahan's injury is unknown. The 29-year-old has worked in a bottom-six role this year -- if he's unable to play Friday versus the Capitals, Tage Thompson or Kyle Okposo (undisclosed) could be options to enter the lineup.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Nets first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan picked up an assist in Monday's victory over Philadelphia.

The assist is Sheahan's first point in a Sabres sweater. He's playing on Buffalo's fourth line and averaging 10:29 of ice time thus far. Without providing much coverage in peripheral categories, Sheahan likely only has value in the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Inks one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan agreed to terms on a one-year, $700,000 deal with Buffalo on Friday.

Sheahan was brought into camp on a PTO and was quickly able to convince team brass to keep him around for the long haul. The 2010 21st overall pick should serve primarily as a penalty killer and will likely feature on the wing given the club's depth down the middle after acquiring Eric Staal and Cody Eakin in the offseason.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Joins Sabres on PTO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan will attend Buffalo's training camp on a professional tryout offer.

Sheahan appeared in 66 games with the Oilers last season, picking up 15 points while averaging 12:48 of ice time, 2:21 of which came shorthanded, per contest. The nine-year vet is a faceoff and penalty-killing specialist, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him earn a bottom-six role with the Sabres during training camp, but either way, he won't produce enough offense to warrant fantasy consideration this year.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 1 against Chicago, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Sheahan missed Tuesday's exhibition game against the Flames with an undisclosed issue, but he'll slot into his usual spot on Edmonton's third line for Game 1. The 28-year-old pivot tallied 15 points in 66 games during the regular season.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Practices Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) returned to practice Thursday and could be an option against the Blackhawks on Saturday, Ryan Rishaug of reports.

If Sheahan is given the all-clear, he figures to draw into the third-line center role and should log plenty of minutes with the penalty kill. The center failed to reach the 20-point mark for the second straight year and likely won't offer much in terms of offensive production during the playoffs.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Will miss exhibition game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) is slated to miss a day or two according to coach Dave Tippett, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports, meaning he won't be available for Tuesday's matchup with Calgary.

Given his limited offensive upside (he managed just 15 points in 66 games this year), Sheahan won't provide much in terms of fantasy value during the postseason. On the ice, the center's absence would hamper the club's ability to kill penalties, giving the Hawks' top players a potential fantasy boost.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Leaves scrimmage early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) exited Saturday's scrimmage early, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

The Oilers won't be releasing any details regarding Sheahan's injury, but if he's forced to miss any game action, Gaetan Haas will likely get the first crack at taking his spot in the lineup. Sheahan's a solid two-way player, but he only picked up 15 points during the regular season, so fantasy players participating in playoff pools don't need to worry about tracking his status.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Deposits eighth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan netted an empty-net goal, blocked three shots and fired two shots on net in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Sheahan snapped a six-game point drought with the tally. The 28-year-old center has managed 15 points, 68 shots and a minus-12 rating through 64 contests. He's primarily been used in a bottom-six role this season.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Registers assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan managed an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Sheahan recently saw time as the second-line center, but Connor McDavid's return from a quadriceps injury will bump Sheahan back to a bottom-six role. The 28-year-old has 14 points, 61 shots and a minus-7 rating in 57 appearances this year.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Opens scoring Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan potted a goal on two shots and added four PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Sheahan scored 1:13 into the first period. The 28-year-old center is up to seven tallies and 13 points in 51 games this season. He'll be expected to take on more playing time with Connor McDavid (quadriceps) out of action for the next 2-to-3 weeks. It's unlikely Sheahan will generate enough offense to attract attention from fantasy owners.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Slings helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan picked up an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Flames.

Sheahan set up Connor McDavid's second score of the game. The 28-year-old has 12 points, 47 shots and a minus-8 rating through 47 contests. Sheahan is only good for sporadic offense in a bottom-six role, which makes him unreliable for fantasy purposes.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Erupts for four points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored a goal and three assists, one of them short-handed, in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Coyotes.

The veteran center had three points (two goals, one helper) in his prior nine games, but he exploded for his first multi-point performance of the season in the big win. Sheahan has only six goals and 11 points through 44 contests, and despite Saturday's outburst he's unlikely to increase that pace much in the second half.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Sparks comeback with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored a goal on three shots and added a pair of blocked shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.

Sheahan got the Oilers on the board at 7:16 of the second period, and a three-goal rally in the final frame sealed the comeback win. The 28-year-old now has seven points, 40 shots and a minus-10 rating in 41 outings this season -- those numbers won't go very far in fantasy.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Points in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored a goal in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Sabres.

Sheahan now has four points in his last six outings. The bottom-six center has just six points through 38 games overall this year, and with weak non-scoring stats (36 shots on goal, 18 hits), he won't be able to help most fantasy owners.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Supplies assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan produced an assist in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Rangers.

Sheahan set up Josh Archibald for a goal at 15:04 of the second period. That tally would end up being the game-winner after a furious comeback effort from the Rangers. Sheahan has shown signs of life with two goals and an assist in his last five outings, but he's at only five points and a minus 8 rating in 37 games this year.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Goals in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

Sheahan scored in both games of the Oilers' back-to-back against Pittsburgh and Montreal. The 28-year-old has four points, 34 shots on goal and a minus-8 rating in 34 appearances this year despite the recent uptick. Sheahan remains in a bottom-six role and isn't likely to produce much offense as he averaged 12:11 of ice time per game entering Saturday.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Lights lamp against old team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored a shorthanded goal in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.

Sheahan, who spent parts of the last two seasons in Pittsburgh, potted the second Oilers' goal of the game. It's just his third point in 33 contests this year -- the 28-year-old is not consistent enough to be of interest to fantasy owners.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Finally gets goal No. 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored his first goal of the season and tied for the team lead with four shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Buffalo on Sunday.

Sheahan got Edmonton on the board midway through the second period for his first goal as an Oiler. The 28-year-old needed 27 games to light the lamp in 2019-20, a disappointing start for a checking center who has generally been able to produce right around 10-14 goals on a yearly basis. The Oilers badly need bottom-six players like Sheahan to begin producing more consistently.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Offense still cold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan has no points in his last seven games.

Sheahan has just one assist in 25 contests this season, adding 22 shots on goal and a minus-10 rating. He'll remain as a bottom-six forward likely for the entire year.
