The Fighting Irish, expected to contend for the CCHA title, finished in the bottom half of the league standings, and were never a serious contender for the NCAA Tournament. Sheahan spent the season struggling to produce offense, netting only six goals in 37 games.
However, it wasn't a complete wash for one of college hockey's youngest players (he turned 18 in December). Sheahan got better as a two-way player, developing as a better guy without the puck. That will serve him well heading into the draft.
Sheahan has good size, great hands, and really got better defensively under coach Jeff Jackson last year. He could easily slip into the top 20 of the draft because of his athletic potential, especially if teams see the April incident as simply a mistake made by a teenager.
