St. Catharines native and ex hometown hero with the JR. B Falcons, has caught the eye of top scouts in the NCAA portion of the scouting report.

A short feature on NHL.com read:

"The American college hockey season is just getting underway, but there already have been a few standouts.

NHL Central Scouting's list of players to watch includes Notre Dame freshman center Riley Sheahen. Rated an 'A' player by Central Scouting, the 6-foot-1, 202-pound center has 2 goals and 7 points in 11 games.

Last season, playing with the St. Catharines Falcons of the Ontario Hockey Association's Golden Horseshoe League, he had 27 goals and 73 points."


Congrats to Riley, and lookout for the soon to be 18 year-old hometown kid to be up in the show in a few years. He is projected to go in the first round.
