Detroit Red Wings trade Riley Sheahan to Pittsburgh Penguins

Andreas Athanasiou

Sproul, 24, played in 27 games with the Red Wings last season before suffering a knee injury that cut short his season. It hasn't gotten any better this season, with Sheahan going without a point in eight games.

The Pittsburgh Penguins appear to be inching closer to acquiring forward Riley Sheahan from the Detroit Red Wings. Puempel most likely will go straight to the Griffins while Wilson most likely will stay with the Red Wings.

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. Sheahan is pointless so far this year but has a big opportunity with the Penguins. The deal comes with a cap hit of $1.387 million after the Red Wings originally offered $1.25 million during the offseason and Athanasiou asked for $2.5 million from the team.

The Detroit Red Wings and restricted forward Andreas Athanasiou have agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $1.387 million, Bob McKenzie of TSN reported on Friday afternoon. During his career he has scored 13 goals and 19 assists.

Matt Puempel has played in 79 career games in the National Hockey League, however he has been with the Rangers AHL affiliate this season.

Athanasiou had until December 1 to sign with a club, the Red Wings leaving at least some time to spare. MLive reported that Athanasiou had been contemplating offers to play in Russia's KHL since late August. The question is how bad were the bridges burned between both sides during this holdout.
