Detroit Red Wings forward Riley Sheahan received a letter from an admiring fan, Morgan Behen, who is battling brain cancer asking him to prom. He said yes. WXYZ Detroit had the full story, which you can watch here:

Brad Galli of WXYZ interviewed Morgan about being surprised from her favorite Red Wing, and the response was nothing short of fantastic. Riley Sheahan spent the evening going back to prom, dancing and laughing with an admiring fan. You can read more about the entire story over at WXYZ's website.

Riley Sheahan has emerged as one of the team's top contributors to Detroit's community, as he also participates in a program in which he donates $100 to the Michigan Humane Society for every point he scores. I'd like to extend a very warm and hearty thank you hug to Riley for his amazing personality, and willingness to give back. You are truly one of the best, kiddo.
