Red Wings Re-sign Sheahan

As first reported by TSN’s Aaron Ward, the Detroit Red Wings have re-signed forward Riley Sheahan to a two-year deal, reportedly carrying a salary cap hit of $2.075 million.

Sheahan, 24, is coming off of his second full season with the Red Wings. He scored a career-high 14 goals in 81 games but saw his total production drop to 25 points after putting up 36 over the 2014-15 campaign.

Sheahan was one of twelve players in the Red Wings’ system scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer. He’s the third of the group to sign, with Brian Lashoff agreeing to terms on a two-way deal with the club earlier this week and Tomas Nosek signing for two more years in late May.
