The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday re-signed center Riley Sheahan to a two-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the Red Wings, but multiple reports have the 22-year-old forward signing for $1.9 million over the two years.

Sheahan, recalled from the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Grand Rapids midway through the 2013-14 season, had nine goals, 15 assists and a plus-6 rating in 42 regular-season games for the Red Wings. Detroit coach Mike Babcock considers Sheahan a reliable two-way performer alongside fellow youngsters Tomas Tatar and Tomas Jurco.

Sheahan, selected in the first round (No. 21) by the Red Wings in the 2010 NHL Draft, also played in five games during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs and was scoreless.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
