June 15, 2016 GMT

Detroit — The Red Wings and forward Riley Sheahan have agreed on a two-year contract.

Sheahan, a potential restricted free agent, scored a career-high 14 goals and 11 assists (25 points) in 81 games last season.

In five playoff games, he had one assist.

Sheahan’s deal is worth $4.150 million, meaning he’ll have a $2.075 million salary cap hit.

Sheahan, 24, is a 6-foot-3, 222-pound former first-round pick in 2010.

Defenseman Danny DeKeyser and goalie Petr Mrazek are potential restricted free agents who remain unsigned, while forwards Drew Miller and Darren Helm are potential unrestrictred free agents who could be re-signed before July 1.
