RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sheahan was part of the youth revolution in Detroit in 2013-14, registering 24 points in 42 games with the Red Wings. The line of Sheahan, Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar was dynamite during the regular season, but the former has a little more competition at center than either of the latter have on the wing. Sheahan will have to fight for a roster spot in the fall, but certainly has the talent to make the team and the chemistry to persist with his linemates from the spring.
Sheahan briefly saw time with the Red Wings in 2012-13, but was sent back down to get more experience. He is likely to stay in Grand Rapids for that very reason in 2013-14.
