He was a hot topic last summer after giving up a spot on the NTDP 17's to go to Moncton.

Gave up a scholarship to BC in the process.
He left the team and toured Dubuque's facilities in mid-March. I'm not sure where things stand now but he's not going back to Moncton.
Anyway, back to Blues prospects....
Shea wasn't mislead at all about his ice time, he was placed on the second line to start the season but he wasn't ready for that kind of ice time in the Q. That's how it works in competitive hockey your ice time gets reduced if you are not producing.
