In the 1994-95 season, Sean played for Fort Wayne and the Canadian National team. In the 1995-96 season, Sean played for the South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL, where he won 31 games. In the 1996-97 season, Sean played for the Pensacola Ice Pilots, winning 23 games as the team's MVP. Sean returned to Pensacola the following season to play one of his best years of hockey, once again taking team MVP honors, winning 29 games and leading the league in saves with 1783. On July 22, 1998, Sean signed with the San Jose Sharks. He reported to training camp in September of '98, and was one of the last few to be sent to Kentucky of the AHL. He recorded his first shutout with the T-Blades at Philadelphia on December 16, 1998. Sean allowed 5 goals total in 5 starts from February 4th to February 14th. Finally, on March 4th, Sean was recalled to the Sharks on an emergency basis, backing up Steve Shields while Mike Vernon nursed an injury. Sean appeared in his first NHL game: the last four minutes of a game already lost to the Sharks. Sean made 2 saves on 2 shots, to which the crowd sarcastically applauded in response to Steve Shields' performance. Sean was sent back to Kentucky March 18th, and he finished the season with the Thoroughblades, who were defeated by the Philadelphia Phantoms in the Calder Cup playoffs.
