Detroit’s Riley Sheahan can set a dubious mark tonight against the Boston Bruins.

If Sheahan registers two shots and doesn’t score, he’ll hold the record for most shots in a season by a forward without scoring a goal.

The NHL first started tracking individual shot totals in 1967-68, the first season after the league expanded from the Original Six.

The good news for Sheahan? The Red Wings still have 18 games left for him to score. Even if he sets the mark tonight, if he can just pot one before season’s end, he’s off the list, and the “honor” goes back to Craig Adams.
