The Red Wings end their trip out West tonight in Seattle

The Detroit Red Wings are looking to continue their modest winning streak tonight in Seattle. The Kraken are on a one-game losing streak and are 2-6-2 in their last 10 games.

Game time tonight is 10:00 p.m. ET at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, WA.

Player focus: Riley Sheahan (C, Seattle)

Former Red Wings player Riley Sheahan prepares for an enjoyable but unspectacular inaugural season in Seattle. Sheahan signed as a free agent with Seattle and played 49 games with the Kraken.

This season, Sheahan has two goals, nine assists, 11 points and a +4 differential. Sheahan is a reliable 4th-line center at this point in his career, and Seattle was the perfect place for Detroit’s former first-rounder.

At 30, Sheahan is currently playing his 11th season in the NHL. He played in 614 NHL games and scored 72 goals, 116 assists, 188 points and a -54 odds.

Sheahan is in the final season of his current contract and will be a UFA at the end of the season. Sheahan’s contract has a cap of $850,000 per year.
