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

Sheahan produced an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 8-4 loss to the Penguins.

Sheahan set up Drake Caggiula's opening tally just 2:45 into the game. The 29-year-old Sheahan is up to 13 points, 41 shots on net and a minus-8 rating in 52 contests. He's mainly served as a fourth-line center, which hasn't led to many chances for offense on a heavily outmatched Sabres team.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Collects assist in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan tallied an assist in Friday's 6-4 win over Boston.

The assist was Sheahan's third apple in the past nine games and snapped a mini four-game point drought. With three goals and eight assists through 45 games, Sheahan should only be rostered in the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Contributes to win in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (upper body) had three shots and was plus-1 while winning seven of 10 faceoffs in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Penguins.

Sheahan had missed the previous two games with his injury but was back Sunday on Buffalo's fourth line with fellow veterans Tobias Rieder and Cody Eakin. The 29-year-old Sheahan is searching for his first goal since March 9 and will take a 19-game drought into Tuesday's game against Boston.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (upper body) will play in Sunday's game versus the Penguins, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Sheahan is back in the lineup after missing the last two games. The 29-year-old will skate in the bottom six as he aims to build on the 10 points he has accrued through 41 games this season.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Still day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (upper body) is still considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game versus Pittsburgh, NHL.com reports.

Sheahan will miss a second straight contest Saturday, and although he's considered day-to-day, the 29-year-old forward should be considered iffy at best for Sunday's rematch with the Penguins. He's picked up 10 points in 41 games this season.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Out with undisclosed issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan won't play Thursday against Washington due to an undisclosed injury, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Sheahan's only picked up 10 points in 41 games this campaign, so his absence will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles. Another update on the veteran forward should surface once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Hindered by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (undisclosed) did not play in the third period of Tuesday's game versus the Bruins, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Sheahan was hit by Nick Ritchie in the second period of the contest. He came back after that but was unable to keep going after the second intermission. It's unclear what exactly is bothering Sheahan, but more information should be available prior to Thursday's game in Washington.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Lends helping hand in rare win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan delivered an assist Wednesday in a 6-1 win over the Flyers.

Sheahan notched a helper in back-to-back games against the Flyers, with the third-line grinder making the most out of his limited ice time. The Sabres snapped a horrendous 18-game losing skid thanks in part to Sheahan, but he's inconsistent at best due to his role as a penalty-killing specialist.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Grabs assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan tallied an assist in Monday's defeat to the Rangers.

The helper snapped a mini four-game point drought for Sheahan. He has three goals and three assists in 29 meetings this season, so don't expect the 29-year-old to find the scoresheet as a regular occurrence.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: On scoresheet with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers.

Sheahan was a healthy scratch Sunday versus the Islanders, but that appears to have reignited his offense. He had gone five games without a goal before sitting out. Sheahan has only four points, 14 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 23 appearances this season. He usually plays in a bottom-six role, but he saw second-line work in Tuesday's contest.

Sabres' Riley Sheahan: Suiting up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheahan (face) will be in the lineup for Friday's tilt with Washington.

Sheahan left Tuesday's game against the Flyers after taking a puck to the face but was able to avoid a serious injury. The 6-foot-4 forward has an assist in four games this season. He's also averaging 10:42 of ice time per game after averaging 12:48 per contest with Edmonton last season.

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 TSN.ca 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.

July 28, 2020 04:40 AM
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.
