Observations:

 

March 2015- In his first go around in Detroit, Sheahan suited up in 42 games in which he was an impressive plus-eight to go along with nine goals and 15 assists for 24 points. His strong play in a time when the Wings were in need helped solidify his place amongst the NHL regulars for the 2015 season. Mike Babcock hasn’t been afraid to throw Sheahan out in any situation either as evidence by his 2:22 PP TOI, 0:35 SH TOI and 15:32 total time on ice per game. Sheahan’s current production is right in line with a year ago as he produces on the scoresheet at around a 0.5 point-per-game clip registering 12G-22A-34PTS in 69 games this season along with a 51.5% of faceoff wins which for a 23 year old is rather impressive. What you see is what you get from Sheahan who has acclimated himself well in Detroit and has proven he belongs and is a rather invaluable player being able to slide up and down the lineup without missing a beat. A glue guy that helps you more on the ice and in the real lineup rather than the fantasy one. Travis Watson

 

September 2014- Riley Sheahan was pushed into the fire last season after the Wings were decimated with injuries and he more than held his own. Brining calm, poise and production to a team that desperately needed it. Sheahan and his linemates the Tomas’, Tatar and Jurco helped ignite the fire on route to a 23rd consecutive playoff appearance. Detroit already was high on the St. Catherines, Ontario native having nabbed him with the 21st overall selection in the 2010 draft and Sheahan’s play in 2014 didn’t waver that assessment it helped boost it. Travis Watson

 

 

January 2014 – Up for his second recall, Riley Sheahan scored his first career NHL goal on route to a 3-1 win over the LA Kings (1/11/2014). Filling in for the magic man Pavel Datsyuk and speedy Darren Helm, who are both out with injury, Sheahan has brought new life and energy to his game this time around. The 6’2″ pivot now has five points through nine games this season and despite some bumps like a minus-3 outing versus the visiting Blues, Sheahan looks
