Wings trade Sheahan, sign Athanasiou

'Things are changing' between Detroit Red Wings, RFA Andreas Athanasiou

Athanasiou, 23, had 18 goals and 29 points along with a minus-7 rating in 64 games last season. With Andreas Anthanasiou's imminent re-signing, the Red Wings had to dump some cap and Sheahan's $2million cap hit was deemed too expensive. He's likely a top-six forward on a lot of National Hockey League teams. No salary was retained by either team in the deal.

Detroit Red Wings restricted free agent Andreas Athanasiou is expected to decide whether he'll re-sign with the Red Wings or join a European team in the very near future.

Riley Sheahan struggled mightily previous year but being one of the younger players on the Red Wings still had a some trade value. What do you think of the moves the Red Wings made today? 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. During his career he has scored 13 goals and 19 assists.

Nation's most expensive ticket this Saturday? Penn State-Michigan
Traveling fans in the western part of the state should make out a lot better, or at least their checking accounts should. Penn State was embarrassed in this game previous year , losing 49-10 in the opening Big Ten game for both schools.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded Scott Wilson and a 3rd round to the Detroit Red Wings for Riley Sheahan and a 5th round pick.

Athanasiou had until December 1 to sign with a club, the Red Wings leaving at least some time to spare. The contract, though more than doubled from his entry level deal, will act as a bridge for the Red Wings to get Athanasiou back in the fold.

While skating with HC Lugano in Switzerland, Athanasiou was hopeful that a Red Wings reunion was possible. MLive reported that Athanasiou had been contemplating offers to play in Russia's KHL since late August.
