Detroit Red Wings trade Riley Sheahan to Pittsburgh Penguins

Athanasiou decision expected soon

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.

After agreeing to a deal with Andreas Athanasiou on Friday, the Detroit Red Wings had to clear some cap space.

"It can only go to December 1 because if he's not signed by then, he's out of the National Hockey League for this season, but here's the latest development", McKenzie said.

Sheahan has had an up and down career since the Red Wings drafted him 21st overall in the 2010 NHL Draft. This down period for the Red Wings is the result of unsuccessful drafting, poor contract management and underperforming from many players on the roster.

The Wings also had made Athanasiou a two-year offer for $1.9 million a season.

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.

Athanasiou, 23, had 18 goals and 29 points along with a minus-7 rating in 64 games last season.

There is no denying Athanasiou is one of the most exciting young forwards on the Red Wings.

While skating with HC Lugano in Switzerland, Athanasiou was hopeful that a Red Wings reunion was possible. He debuted during the 2015-16 campaign and scored nine goals and 14 points in 37 games.

Athanasiou is now skating with a Swiss team as he waits out the situation and is believed to have offers from the KHL.

Through seven games, the Red Wings are 4-3 and enter the weekend off back-to-back losses.
