Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Sheehan was already established as a journeyman when he came to the Rockies, and that includes both in the NHL,
the WHA, and the AHL. So it was really no surprise that he split time between Denver and Fort Worth.

His size might have something to do with that. Not a big man at all, but made up for it with quick moves and quick wit.

His best years were while with the New Haven Nighthawks, divided when he was Rangers property, then when he was
Kings property, and while in the WHA. Kinda makes sense that that would be the case.

He would retire in 1983 after finishing the season with the Binghamton Whalers.
Entry Draft: 1969 Third Round Pick (32nd overall) by the
Montreal Canadiens
