Detroit Red Wings fans will get a chance to see some of their favorite players in early December, when they play a charity game in Windsor. But if they want to see guys like Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, they'd better have their passports up to date. Datsyuk has been spending the lockout in his native Russia, playing for CSKA Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League, the team for which former Red Wing Sergei Fedorov is the head manager. Zetterberg, expected to be the next Wings captain after the retirement of longtime Wing Nick Lidstrom, is is Switzerland, has been playing for EV Zug since mid-October. They are two of the handful of Wings who are playing around the globe, while some of their teammates skate at the Troy Sports Center and others play for the Wings' American Hockey League affiliate in Grand Rapids, the Griffins. Datsyuk, 34, has had excellent success so far in Russia, racking up seven goals and 18 assists in 20 games. He's second on the team in s...

‘Super drunk’ Riley Sheahan wearing Teletubby costume, carrying Brendan Smith’s ID when arrested

Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan reportedly had a .3o blood alcohol content when he was arrest late last month by Grand Rapids Police. This is according to Peter J. Wallner of Mlive.com. The .30 level blown by Sheahan was four times the legal limit and almost twice the amount to be considered ‘super drunk’ in the State of Michigan. But it doesn’t end there for the 20 year old...

Todd Bertuzzi: “I see us losing a year.”

Many of the Detroit Red Wings have been in town (Detroit) and practicing at the Troy Sports Center just in case something breaks in talks between the NHL Players’ Association and the owners.  The players have been locked out since September 16 and the NHL just announced that games through December 14, including the All Star Game, have been cancelled. It’s the third work stop...

Red Wings Prospect Was “Super-Drunk,” Wearing Teletubby Costume During DUI Arrest

There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Riley Sheahan before, which is understandable considering he’s a 20-year old Detroit Red Wings prospect who has only played in one career NHL game. The kid has a promising future in hockey, he was drafted 21st overall in the 2010 NHL entry draft after spending three years at Notre Dame, but the only reason we’re talking about him...

On the Sheahan arrest and what it might mean for the Griffins’ players

As Paul noted, the Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner's FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to the Grand Rapids police produced a rather worrisome arrest report indicating that Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan was severely intoxicated and attempting to use Brendan Smith's driver's license when he was pulled over "super-drunk" after the Grand Rapids...

Report: Red Wings Prospect Was ‘Super Drunk,’ Wearing Teletubby Costume at Time of Drunk Driving Arrest

Riley Sheahan is a young guy who is a professional hockey player, and because of that, he’s going to be prone to mistakes, both on and off the ice. His biggest transgression in his young career has come away from the rink. MLive.com has the details of the the Red Wings prospect’s drunken driving arrest in late October, and there are some eye-opening revelations. According to...

Keeping Teletubbies In Perspective

First...Riley Sheahan's "super drunk" act is nothing laugh it.  At .30, he was just under four times the legal limit (of .08), driving the wrong way down a Grand Rapids one-way street and basically turning himself and his vehicle into a weapon.  That's not good, and neither is the fact that he had Brendan Smith's driver's license.  I'm sure he&...

Mediation means jack and squat given that neither side really wants to negotiate

They're rather gloomy, but especially given Todd Bertuzzi's wise words about a season that I regrettably believe will be canceled shortly after the Board of Governors meet on December 5th, here's my take on the news that U.S. federal mediators will be taking part in an attempt to break the deadlock between the NHL and NHLPA. Todd Bertuzzi's lockout prediction...

Arrest Report For Riley Sheahan

from Peter J. Wallner of Mlive, Sheahan, the Red Wings top pick in the 2010 NHL draft, was wearing a purple Teletubby costume when he was pulled over shortly before midnight on Oct. 29 for driving a 2012 Jeep Wrangler the wrong way on Ottawa Avenue NW, near Pearl Street. Police initially believed they had arrested Smith before learning later in the night that it was Sheahan...
