Riley Sheahan may be one of the youngest members on the Red Wings, but he has been playing like a solid veteran. He's getting a lot of pucks to the net and creating scoring chances earning him a spot on one of the Red Wings top lines and power play unit. Look for Sheahan to step up tonight if Datsyuk can't go.
Sheahan has a total of six points in the 2014-15 campaign. (2 goals, 4 assists)
