Washington Capitals Sign Sheary

The Washington Capitals have signed forward Conor Sheary to a one-year, $735,000 contract, senior vice president and General Manager Brian MacLellan announced recently.

Sheary, 28, recorded 23 points (10g, 13a) in 63 games with the Buffalo Sabres and the Pittsburgh Penguins last season. The 5’8″, 179-pound forward was tied for sixth among Buffalo forwards with 19 points (9g, 10a) before being traded to Pittsburgh on Feb. 24. In 325 career regular season games with the Penguins and Sabres, Sheary has 150 points (72g, 78a).

A two-time Stanley Cup champion with Pittsburgh (2016 and 2017), Sheary has recorded 21 points (6g, 15a) in 61 playoff games. Since making his playoff debut in 2016, Sheary’s 61 playoff games are tied for 21st in the NHL among forwards. During Pittsburgh’s 2016 Stanley Cup Final against the San Jose Sharks, Sheary scored the overtime goal in Game 2, becoming the first rookie to score an overtime goal in a Stanley Cup Final since Montreal Canadien Brian Skrudland in the 1986 Stanley Cup Final.

Sheary played four seasons at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst from 2010-14, recording 104 points (38g, 66a) in 138 games, finishing his collegiate career seventh in school history in assists and points.
