Detroit Red Wings‘ 1st round pick in the 2010 draft (#21 overall), rookie center Riley Sheahan(19) got the winning goal for their minor league affiliate Grand Rapid Griffins in game 1 of the AHL Calder Cup Finals.
In 20 postseason contest he has 3 goals and 9 assists with a +6 rating. He appeared in all 72 regular season games and showed excellent point production with 16 markers and 20 helpers.
He’s appeared in a pair of games (one last season after finishing up 3 years at Notre Dame and one this year) with the parent club but has yet to hit the score sheet.
The 6’2″ 212 lbs. forward was never much of a scorer in college hockey but with a fairly large frame at only 21-years old he is definitely a prospect with potential.
