2010 NHL Draft, 21st Pick: Detroit Selects Riley Sheahan, Notre Dame Center

The Detroit Red Wings don't usually choose in the low twenties in the NHL Draft and they have found a good pick with Notre Dame center Riley Sheahan. Sheahan had a disappointing season last year with 17 points in 37 games, but some of that can be contributed to the overall disappointment of the Notre Dame team this season. 

Our Blue Jackets site, Jackets Cannon, had this to say about Sheahan

Riley Sheahan is a center who recently completed his freshman year at the University of Notre Dame. He's a playmaking pivot who can anchor a forward line due to his offensive and defensive ability. He was recently arrested along with fellow Irish teammate Nick Palmieri. This of course could be an isolated incident, but it makes one question his off-ice attitude and behavior. It's worth noting that this past season he was the youngest player in NCAA hockey.

Sheahan has a few years to grow with Notre Dame and has the chance to become pretty good.
