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.

January 3, 2020 03:20 AM
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.

January 1, 2020 02:32 AM
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.

November 20, 2019 02:00 AM
Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Assist for first point in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan notched an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

It took Sheahan 18 games to get on the scoresheet this year. He assisted Jujhar Khaira in the final minute of the first period. Ir's unlikely Sheahan's offense sparks much off of this, but he hasn't finished lower than 13 points in a full campaign during his career, so some positive regression can be expected.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Playing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against New Jersey on Friday.

Sheahan missed three outings due to his undisclosed injury, but will rejoin the lineup in a third-line role. The center is still looking for his first point of the 2019-20, but should hold onto his spot thanks to his role on the penalty kill, where he is averaging 2:00 of ice time per game.

November 7, 2019 12:16 AM
Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Could return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) was deemed ready to play by coach Dave Tippett, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Sheahan has missed three games with an undisclosed injury, but it sounds like he has a decent chance to return Friday versus the Devils. Sheahan's return to a fourth-line role would likely result in Colby Cave returning to AHL Bakersfield.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) won't be available against the Blues on Wednesday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Sheahan will miss his third consecutive contest due to his undisclosed injury. The Ontario native has yet to record a point this season and could miss out on the 20-point mark for a second straight year if his slump drags on any further. Colby Cave figures to hold down the fourth-line center role in Sheahan's absence.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's contest against the Coyotes.

Sheahan will miss his second straight contest with the mysterious injury. Without a point in his first 12 contests, the 27-year-old may not get back into the lineup even when he's healthy. Colby Cave will suit up with the bottom-six again.

Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Will miss Saturday's matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against the Penguins on Saturday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports, despite earlier indications he would play.

Sheahan's absence is unlikely to impact the bulk of fantasy owners, as he is pointless to start the year. The center is averaging just 11:27 of ice time in a fourth-line role and has put just nine shots on goal in those 12 appearances. Unless the veteran can secure a more regular spot in the lineup, he won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

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

Sheahan (undisclosed) is expected to play Saturday against Pittsburgh.

Sheahan exited Thursday's 4-1 win over Columbus with an undisclosed injury after logging just 4:42 of ice time, but whatever forced him from that contest clearly wasn't overly serious. The 27-year-old will occupy his usual fourth-line role Saturday against the Penguins.

October 31, 2019 11:12 AM
Oilers' Riley Sheahan: Will be further evaluated Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) will undergo further evaluation Thursday after leaving Wednesday's matchup with the Blue Jackets due to an undisclosed injury, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The good news for fans and fantasy owners is that the organization is getting Sheahan looked at in Pittsburgh, rather than sending him back to Edmonton. This at least leaves open the possibility that the center could suit up in Saturday's tilt against the Penguins. If the Ontario native can't play, Tomas Jurco figures to slot into the lineup while a depth forward will likely be promoted from AHL Bakersfield.
