It's hardly a secret that alcohol abuse and other substance issues are rampant in pro hockey. Too many coaches, GMs etc. are up to it themselves and there's kind of an old-time "ah what's a few drinks" type attitude going on. Hence why unfortunately I don't think this will have any effect on Sheahan's career nor do I think he will change his ways. I doubt this was the first time he drove drunk and I doubt it was the last.
