Despite this, the Red Wings still have some of the NHL's most exciting young players on their roster in Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha and of course, Athanasiou. While the deal comes with only a one-year term, it's essentially an opportunity for the Red Wings to continue developing their young prospect while pushing the contract discussions down the road for the time being. The development of Athanasiou with the National Hockey League roster is of the utmost importance for the Red Wings, as it is for all National Hockey League prospects. He and the Red Wings finally got a deal done but it was only a one year deal. In 20 playoff games, Wilson had three goals and three assists.
Sheahan is the newest Penguin after the Red Wings packaged him and a 2018 fifth-round draft pick for Scott Wilson and a 2018 third-round pick Saturday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. He flew there at the start of this month and has been skating with a team there while debating whether to play in Europe or the KHL.
Through seven games, the Red Wings are 4-3 and enter the weekend off back-to-back losses.
