By The Numbers: Riley Sheahan

by Bill Roose / Detroit Red Wings

By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments during the first half of the 2015-16 season. For the next few days By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. Here is a look at center Riley Sheahan.


Is second on the team in the number of consecutive games played, going back to last April. He missed the final three games of March with an upper-body injury suffered in a 6-4 loss to San Jose on March 26.


Had his fourth career three-game point streak in December. Collected two goals and an assist and six shots on goals as the Wings went 2-1-0 against Calgary (Dec. 20), New Jersey (Dec. 22) and Nashville (Dec. 26).


His game high for shots on goal this season. He’s reached that number three times this season – vs. Buffalo (Dec. 1), at Minnesota (Dec. 28), and at Buffalo (Jan. 2). Sheahan’s single-game high is six SOG, established in a 4-1 loss at Columbus on March 11, 2014.


Scored his second career game-winner, leading Detroit over the Anaheim Ducks (Jan. 10). His 36-foot snap shot with 3:44 left in regulation proved to be the winner. Sheahan’s only other GWG came against Montreal’s Carey Price on Jan. 24, 2014.


Number of shots on goal taken by Sheahan in 49 games. His current rate of 1.71 SOG/per game has him on pace to collect 140 SOG this season. That would give him a new single-season high, besting last season’s total of 123 SOG.


Currently owns the Wings’ lowest plus-minus rating. Should his rating stay below minus-14 for the season, Sheahan would become just the fourth Wings’ forward in the past 25 years with such problematic numbers. The others are Randy McKay, -15 (1990-91), Martin Lapointe, -14 (1996-97), and Todd Bertuzzi, -17 (2013-14).
