Sheahan Up; Zetterberg Progressing Nicely

The Red Wings have called up C Riley Sheahan from Grand Rapids.

Sheahan, 22, was the team’s first round draft pick in 2010 after playing one year at Notre Dame. Sheahan played two more seasons for the Fighting Irish before joining the Griffins in 2012. He has had two cups of coffee for the Red Wings and his next game for Detroit will be his third in the NHL.

Last year at Grand Rapids, Sheahan scored 16 goals in 72 games. He’s 6’2″, 212 pounds, which these days is becoming the norm, even for a center.

A correlating roster move hasn’t been announced yet for Sheahan’s call-up, but candidates to be replaced are Justin Abdelkader and Johan Franzen, who left Saturday and Sunday’s games, respectively, after hits to the head.

On the injury front, the Free Press’ Helene St. James tweeted this out re: Henrik Zetterberg:
