Ouch. Let's hope this is somewhat of a learning lesson for him. Rather see him trying to improve his game instead of dropping the gloves. However kudos to him for dropping the gloves. AHL is a tough league to fight in.
He was standing up for the team, which is a good reason to fight. After a boarding major, I'm glad he challenged the hitter.
With that said, he hasn't been fighting a lot which is probably a good thing. He needs to work on his game and fight smartly (this was a good time to fight IMO).
On topic, I'm excited to see how Sheahan plays. I don't expect him to put up big points, but hopefully he can develop into a solid NHL fourth liner. He seems to have all the skills for it.
