SHEARY, CAPITALS AGREE TO TERMS ON MULTI-YEAR EXTENSION

APR 14, 2021  (16H55)      COOPER GODIN
The Washington Capitals announced on Wednesday that they've agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension worth $3 million ($1.5 million AAV) with forward Conor Sheary. The Winchester, Massachusetts native was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Sheary, 28, has spent parts of six seasons in the NHL with Pittsburgh, Buffalo, and Washington. In 365 regular season games, he's recorded 169 points (83 G, 86 A), 74 penalty minutes, and is a +4. In 61 career playoff games, Sheary has 21 points (6 G, 15 A), 16 penalty minutes, and is a -5.

As a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Sheary won the Stanley Cup twice, in 2016 during his rookie year, and in 2017. He played a key role for the Penguins in both Stanley Cup championships tallying 17 points (6 G, 11 A) in 45 playoff games in 2016 and 2017.

So far, he's been a great depth addition to the Capitals roster, and while he's only averaging just over 13 minutes of time on ice per game, Sheary has potted 11 goals, and added 8 helpers in 40 games. Washington is hoping that he can continue his consistent play down the stretch and into the playoffs.
