Timothy Sheehy
Right Wing
Shoots:
Born: Sep 3, 1948
Birthplace: Fort Frances, ON, Canada
Right-winger Tim Sheehy took the long road to the National Hockey League but made his NHL debut in 1977 with the Detroit Red Wings. Sheehy, who was born in September 3rd, 1948 in Fort Frances, Ontario, was an American citizen by the time his career got underway. Sheey was a major star as a high school player leading his team to 59-straight victories and three consecutive Minnesota State Championships. He then moved on to a University career. After three decorated years with Boston College, Sheehy joined the United States National Team where he participated in two World Championships and the 1971 Winter Olympics. Sheehy, he served as the captain of the U.S. club was a major part of the team that surprised many by winning a silver medal.

His professional career began in 1972 when he signed on with the World Hockey Association's New England Whalers where he soon earned a reputation as a steady scoring winger. During his third season with the Whalers Sheehy was traded to the Edmonton Oilers where he spent parts of three seasons. After a very solid 1976-77 campaign where Sheehy scored 41 goals he caught the attention of the NHL and was acquired via trade by the Detroit Red Wings.

Sheehy, now starting the tenth season of his career, made his NHL debut with the Red Wings and was held scoreless in 15 contests. In February of 1978 the Red Wings sold his rights back to the Whalers, the team he began his pro career with.

Back in the WHA Sheehy was unable to find his previous scoring touch and spent the 1978-79 season in the minors. By 1979-80, the Whalers were now an NHL club as a result of the WHA folding and Sheehy returned to the big leagues with them.

Sheehy played 12 games for the Whalers and scored two goals and three points in that time. The rest of his season was split between the Central Hockey League and the American League. Sheehy retired at season's end. In 1997, Sheehy was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame.
