The Pipeline: Riley Sheahan

With all the talent coming up through the Red Wings system, there’s plenty of unique stories, personalities and talents to share, and we here at TPL are doing our part to bring those to you via “The Pipeline.”

It’s time for another installment of “The Pipeline” and this time the guys welcome in current Notre Dame forward Riley Sheahan. Currently a sophomore at ND, Sheahan was drafted in the first round (21st overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft and is a promising two-way forward with a physical presence to boot. Sheahan has tallied 3 goals and 14 assists this year, all while helping lead Notre Dame to the top of the CCHA standings. With a big home-and-home looming this weekend against Western Michigan – and the CCHA regular season championship on the line as well – Riley was still able to take some time out of his schedule to chat about his experience at the Draft last year, the emergence of hockey at Notre Dame and which NHL player he patterns his game after. Riley also gives some insight into the never-ending quest to find a Brett Lebda statue on ND’s campus, as well as answering the TPL Five Pack of questions to close things out.

*A big thanks to Riley Sheahan and the University of Notre Dame for being so gracious and accommodating.
